Animal lives while food gets. Machine lives while fuel gets. Man lives while creative energy gets.
The picture appeared to be exiting and forced me to fall in love with her at the very first distant sight. She gave me the impression of concentrated inner life, of a new coherent mechanism that is wound by hand of experienced and wise watchmaker. The perpetuum mobile, which people dreamed to open since ancient times.
What can be eternal in one picture? – can you ask. – Today it is amazing, and tomorrow?
Tomorrow it will be just as amazing as it is today, because the mission of art is to make awesome and shocking impressions from the spiritual world and to give these impressions to people as food.
We need a permanent shock
Many artists painted frame on the painting itself, but no one has yet depicted part of the frame only. However, the picture is framed here on two sides only, left and top, and it is open from underneath and to the right. And the elements wanted to break through this partial frame as through the dam. It is amaising!
What the artist wanted to say?
Recall the famous painting by Malevich “Black Square”. There was also a white frame around the square, but the frame was on all four sides. Frame role in painting is to keep the depicted object, like a caged animal. As long as the spirit is locked, it is not dangerous. Otherwise, viewers would see “the animal” in the wild, and go mad from the shock.
And if you release the prisoner?
If at least one of the elements of the painting goes beyond the frame, it’s a threshold state, a transition to another world. Shock occurs whenever our consciousness makes the transition through the threshold, even if involuntarily. And this moves us forward. Such painting can move forward our consciousness.
These circles, squares and more complex figures in the painting are the creative forces. They want to create in space their geometric configuration. They are the creative ideas that flare like sparks in our mind, and they want to fill all of the black field.
Where did they come from? And why so many?
The answer is simple – the artist has made them the entrance. Since there is no bottom of the frame, they are free to enter and can fill entire field with their intricacies. And through the top, they can not get out, because the frame prevents. The result was like a trap for the creative forces. That’s why the picture is filled with such vitality.
Hence, what we need to do in life?
It is necessary to open the entrance to the creative forces, to get them to work for ourselves. It is like to grist to the mill. Under the pressure of the water the mill starts to rotate. The only difference is that water is falling from above, and creative power are coming from below, from the ground. These are the elements. By opening entrance for them, we fill ourselves with energy, and forget about fatigue and depression. So we can discover a perpetuum mobile – and the artist probably already discovered it.
Entrance and exit
Entrance for the creative forces, we said, is through the bottom, but not through the top, as in the old days. Wisdom lies in the fact that now nothing comes to us from above, from God, no matter how much we pray. The spiritual world enters into us from below, when we begin to create. That’s the secret! The creativity is a modern way to take energy from the spiritual world.
In the above mentioned painting by Malevich was not yet any entrance or exit. The man was left alone with the spiritual world. And what he could see there? Nothing. Absolute blackness. Black square. No forces. Absolutely nothing. Painting at an impasse from which it starts to get only in the 21st century.
And in this paintig there are both entrance and exit. Doing so we admit the creative forces through the lower side – it is creativity. And release them through the right side – this is cognition of creation. After all, we write from left to right, and we will never try to go beyond the left margin of the sheet.
The truth is in the fact that creativity has to be known. Only then our creative engine will perform useful work. You can see that all the figures in the painting are like turned in a clockwise. Who turns them? Who causes them to do the work? Obviously, we do it ourselvesby closing them the freedom to move to the left and up.
Man as the king of the creative forces
Previously, it was not so. Previously, human creativity depended on the the Muses, gods, and the higher forces. In the future it will be probably also not so. Someday we will learn to write from right to left, that is, we will learn how to change the habits of our will. And also the background will not then be black.
Given that over time things change, the artist Jino made a triptych, and called it a “The window of time“. Now we discuss the central part of the triptych, that is, today. This is the current state of the world, when a completely different spiritual path is proposed, than in ancient times.
But people today still desperately resisting to go this modern path. They say: “We do not understand such a painting.” However, which is not to understand? The artist received a revelation, and he painted the triptych, and said: “This is a living truth before you! Take it and go for it!” After all, such truths do not just given, it is a huge creative and analytical work.
