Posts Tagged ‘#666 + HEARTFIRE 1999 Catherine L. Johnson; CATHERINE L. JOHNSON;’

Please note:
My entry does NOT refer to the apocalyptic wildfires in Northern California.  
The devastation of the wildfires in California is real and harrowing.
The “fire” I specify and allude to is a poetic internal metaphor
not the apocalypse,
horror and grief that those effected by the wildfires are experiencing.

“We are created in rhythm,
kept alive in rhythm,
evolve through rhythm.

Tides, breath, and blood flow in rhythm.

We are born into a universe of currents,

our heart is

the great conductor of the body,

orchestrating

our

flow.”

The legacy of the

HEART FIRE

is more than eight hundred thousand years old
—and in our modern world,
we need more than ever to consciously reconnect
to the

RADIANT FIELD

that transcends
time, space, and culture.

X

The

direct awakening

of the heart
often happens when we are at a

crisis point,

when the armor of our heart

has to crack,”

writes Shiva Rea.

X

“Let us return to the

POWER

and

MAGNIFICENCE

of our

HEARTS

as LIVING

FIRE,

as INTELLIGENT

ENERGY

and

as ELECTROMAGNETIC

RADIANCE,

and

as our

ILLUMINATING 

guide

toward

LOVE,

CREATIVITY,

and

deep knowing

of our

TRUE

SACRED

 NATURE.”

In our hearts there burns a fire…
That burns all veils to their root and foundation

When those veils have been burned away
Then the heart will understand completely.
Ancient love will unfold ever-fresh forms
In the heart of the Spirit,
In the core of the heart.
– RUMI

Radiance.

X

The curtain parts, or, the intensity of the radiant light penetrates
and transcends all hindrances.

X

The work is made of veils of crimson and scarlet reds.
The gold was laid down by wall paper brushes and then washed over with the reds,
and then the red was washed away
– this process was repeated over and over again until
the moment when the gold crested and was unlocked. 

X

The HEARTFIRE series reveals itself upon various light conditions
and in relation to the viewer.

X

Like all my paintings, it is never one painting.

X

My paintings are a dance and a sound.

X

My work unfolds in time and in dialogue with the viewer.
The viewer is not a passive spectator, but a participant- a dancer.

X

CALL + RESPONSE

X

The HEARTFIRE series is a continuous series which began in 1998
and exists in various formats and dimensions.
