Abstract (non-objective) work started in 1988 in Los Angeles, California and has continued through many years. It began in an epiphany, of a sudden opening of the sixth chakra. At that moment I was able to enter the sphere of the universal mind, a world of concepts.
Abstract art has been around in the Western world for over hundred years. Mystics like Lama Anagarika Govinda and Ramana Maharshi talked about that dimension as well. I did not have a full understanding of it until that day. Ramana Maharshi explains that realization of that dimension is one of the stages on the way to the enlightened state, describing his own experience. I read about that many years later.
These paintings are visual contemplations.
