'Dharma: The Poetics Of Spirit'.

'Dharma: The Poetics Of Spirit'.


by Stephanie Lynne Thorburn.

Category:  Art & energy healing.

Description: 'Dharma: The Poetics of Spirit'. An illustrated personal odyssey on Spiritual Arts & Reiki Healing Art Forms. A reflective etude on Reiki healing, complete with spiritual art illustrations inspired by Greek mythology. Accompanying the artwork, there is a short, second passage exploring the genre of Spiritual Graphic Arts. The work is by artist & author Stephanie Lynne Thorburn.

Excerpt: The Poetics of Spirit Art. "Spiritual graphic art comprises primordial cultural archetypes evoking the collective unconscious. Channelling inspirational spiritually derived images involves the ability to envision generic essences. The artwork cultivated in my collection 'Primordial Essences’ is permeated by ancient esoteric symbols and residual cultural mythology. My art is defined by the legacy of my own connection to the conscious world and is a reflection of how I perceive the living experience. The collection explores the parameters of the avant-garde and is characterised by pastel colours, realisations of creatures cast into surreal technicolour, benevolent gods, angels and the super- verse populated by the doyens of our imagination guised as Kings..."

by Stephanie Lynne Thorburn.

This avant-garde artistic text broaches the essence of spiritual graphic arts, containing verses, cover art, odes and philosophical prose. This experimental eBook culminates in some interpersonal reflections on the nature of creative synaesthesia. The structure is Surrealist in genre and juxtaposes theory with lucid vignettes & illustrations, hinting at the animated characters and creative inspirations of the author's subconscious. The spiritual writing and art explores primal emotions, quests of bravery, unrequited love and intimate personal challenges. This illustrated spirit art book is based on the dual conceptual themes of personal and fictional odyssey.
