These images will be the inspiration for the mini cabins and bunkees that we will be building for Urban Primitive’s new tattoo retreat and healing center. The intention of our new Soul Garden Retreat is to appeal and heal the inner child in all of us.
I AM GROOT
I love Earth art! The flow of this willow sculpture reminds me of the flowing murmuration flight patterns of birds. It is like the Earth birthed the art. I want to do lots of Earth art projects on our new property when we move next year!
I studied Iyengar yoga for many years and really appreciated the intelligence in this system of yoga for aligning body, mind and spirit.
I painted this portrait of B.K.S. Iyengar (inspired by a photo by Martin Brading) a gift for his 90th birthday but it unfortunately never got delivered to Pune, India because of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai that year.
My painting focused on the spiritual side of B.K.S. Iyengar which really spoke to me. Most photo and artistic representations emphasized his lion-like fierceness or are images of him as a young man.
If you have ever practiced yoga using a prop such as a block, belt, bolster or ropes, you can thank Mr. Iyengar for bringing this wisdom thus making yoga asanas possibly for people who otherwise would be unable to do the poses. Mr. Iyengar also pioneered restorative yoga for healing and integration on deeper levels.
Fibonacci you crazy bastard….
As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Venus orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Earth orbits the sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!
Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..
So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!
You bet!! Depicted here is a:
- 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
- 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
- 5 sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
- 8 sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)
I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….
Q:I wish I was closer to Ontario! Your work is amazing!
If you come down for a tattoo from me, I will create a great Khaleesi style tattoo. Most of my clients wish they were closer to Ontario! Many are from out of the continent!
