In my cleromantic paintings there is a mystical connection between message, meaning and spirit.
The message is key and endures throughout the interpretive process. For the painting included in this post, the message is “Light the Fire”.
The meaning of the painting is the result of the dialogue between the viewer and the image, in relation to the message. Meaning may change over time, based on such elements as the viewer’s state-of-mind when experiencing the painting, awareness of other interpretations, and comprehension of new details after multiple views.
Finally, spirit guides within the painting act as intermediaries that assist the viewer. The role of spirit guides in the interpretive process is especially strong when the viewer is open to the mystical nature of the experience.
By grasping the connection between message, meaning and spirit in my paintings, viewers achieve a deeper understanding of the transformative benefits of this new art form.
