Which You Do"
for the site of the Society of Art of Imagination.
When you don't think, and even don't think about the fact
that you don't think that you don't think..... then who are
you by nationality? Who are you by art style or movement,
and who are you yourself?
A personality, and it's manifestation, appears only when the
sign of the spirit begins to emerge and to create some fruits
the movement. In other words, you are which you do.
When you look around and try to find understanding of "that
you are" ....usually you are faced with a wall of hostility
misunderstanding. Because the people who don't understand
not enough reserve of love for you ....they don't see themselves
Not all of us are heard, not all of us are recognized but
all of us
are underestimated. We are looking for something related,
accommodate "that which we do," and maybe that is
a reason for the
Society of Art of Imagination.
The relationship of "that which we do" is a kind
of nationality and
a kind of citizenship. I am writing this from Crimea. It is
in the territory of Ukraine, which used to be part of the
Union. All these words, meanings, and syntax of common social
illusion, the same with the syntax of words; London, Montreal,
Britain, United States, etc....
In the hidden reality there are no such countries, there are
cultures, there are no religious organizations.... there are
kinds of energies which are in everlasting conflict; there
existence and non-existence, and we can be a part of them,
are always some part of "that which we do."
For a contemplative artist to live and to also create, in
Soviet times and after failure of the "Cold War,"
is a matter of
compassion and reassessment. It is a matter of understanding
relationship between a shape and an essence. After the destruction
of some form (in this case the Soviet Union) what remains
is the essence?
Those people who fully belonged to the form are unhappy, because
their hearts are broken; they cannot find themselves unless
form appears, but until that time... all is chaos. This is
of all shapes, all cultures, all idols.
Present day Ukraine and Russia are looking for some form of
"national identity" ....west or east, nationalism
Democracy or Liberalism. Such a broken form is looking for
shape which will be destroyed anyway if the essence leaves
A contemplative or visionary artist is never or not always
context, he tries to concentrate on different things. A form
actions appears as a result and it has a secondary value.
country is in his mind and in other people, who live similar
The artist, eventually understands that the only relationship
spiritual one, your only state is with people who understand
accept you and what you do, an maybe those who produce fruit
to yours. It always looks like a country inside other countries,
a society inside other societies. The most important thing
is not to
lose the idea and energy, which gathers and unites and makes
become relatives... which also have shapes, but which will
destroyed, like all others before and after.
