DEGARD – Painter of Auras
My paintings are about people’s Life energies: those vital forces which guide and control our lives.
We know there are many energies in our world and more than just gravity and electromagnetics. We have and are conscious – that’s an energy!
All energy comes together in my paintings. My paintings are a visual description of consciousness which I actually see around people’s bodies and around things too.
I call this energy ‘Conscious Aura’ (sometimes aura pure) because I believe that our aura, our presence is conscious.
Our Aura Conscious, so that is all our cells, chemistry and all our consciousness, I perceive as incredible lights, swirls, patterns, dashes. I also ‘see’ this energy,in the dark; so I painted The Dark Series in phosphorescence so you can view how the Aura Conscious appears to me.
My paintings sit within the genre of Contemporary Visionary Art. There are many superb artists involved in this new genre.
Contemporary because I research what is happening in society now, in scientific thinking, branding, the history of Art.
Visionary because my work is intuited and channelled; I intuit the intangible magic/poetry/vision in my life which is also in yours.
My Art’s context is from a long history of Visionary artists: Susan Hiller, Gabriel Rico, Georgiana Houghton, Hilma af Klimt, Lee Krasner, Emma Kunz, Kandinsky, William Blake, Bruegel etc.. I curate exhibitions within the Contemporary Visionary genre – please check out the page in the Contemporary Visionary Art tab.
By viewing my work, I hope that you will ‘see’ some of that magic, connection and hope in your life.
My Art is entirely optimistic for humanity, the paintings being purposefully painterly and beautiful.
My new series, coming soon will look at brands like Gucci, Chanel and Louis Vuitton as well as those items traditionally used in fine art, apples, oranges and maybe not so traditional the hamburger! My latest series Drip and Still Lives will be on show in London soon.
