Oval / Οβάλ
24 June '21
Art Park Rhodes, oval trimmed wheat field
The Oval corresponds to the individual and to the processes that takes place within him/her. Inside the Oval I paint the 7 plates, a project I have been working on for some time, where each plate corresponds to one of the chakras and at the same time to the colors of the light spectrum. I interpret the chakras as energy centers but at the same time as symbolism for self-discovery and relating to others. The visitors – participants, with their presence and creative energy in the surrounding field, influence the result which is imprinted on the plates.
I have been working on this idea for some time now while I am in the Park, but just last night I managed to give a form to it, so I made it public at the last minute. Here is some more information.
The action could take place on Saturday or Sunday, but since tomorrow is the full moon, I want to follow the creation-completion of the project at the same time as the completion of the moon. At the same time it is a good moment to let go of what weighs on us and to indulge in the energy that abounds in the park and nature.
I create the plates in a meditative process, which is why there were instructions for whoever was entering the Oval field to observe silence: I call the energy required by the expression of speech and thought, all in the direction of creation.
