This was painted for South Carolina photographer Scott Smallin.
We hire Scott to photograph my projects when we are in the South. As a thank you for the excellent work he does, I offered to create an original painting for him.
Scott said that he wanted a robot destroying a city I pondered this idea, of a robot destroying a city, with a mushroom cloud or transformers. But that didn’t feel right to me.
So I asked myself “What is something that is real that is destroying the world? What if there is an ideaology and a secret that is really destroying it?
I took this idea deeper.
The painting shows the battle between good and evil, with many symbols; the robot is a black cube, controlling all of the material world, spreading evil until it self-destructs into a mushroom cloud.
It’s the death of the material world, which ultimately has no effect on the spiritual world. The spiritual world has infinite power for good.
The water represents good extinguishing evil. This painting is about the battle over information throughout time; it is about control over the information of who we really are.
The light beings show that we are pure energy. Our hearts are the engine that makes the electrical connection to everything. It’s what holds us here in space and time.
My passion is in ancient cultures. I study that along with sacred geometry and the meaning behind ancient symbols and new theories in physics.
The reason I chose Saturn and the Cubes as evil, is because my research shows that this is something that people in the ancient worlds were worshipping. They couldn’t even see Saturn; how did they know it was there?
The reason the symbol is a cube is because there is a cube shape on the Northern pole of Saturn.
Another ancient symbol is the ring of Saturn; some speculate that the “all seeing eye” is what Saturn looks like during an eclipse. They said that Saturn is the timekeeper and that you’re trapped in a prison of time and space.
I view the world differently than most people. Some don’t want to see it the way I do, because it’s scary.
We are born into a system that is controlled by power and greed and information. The average person has a very hard time bucking the system. Essentially, we are all born a slave. Most people that are a part of the system don’t even realize that they are.
Some people don’t know that they don’t have to do what they are doing. They don’t have to live where they grew up; they can leave! They don’t have to keep that job they hate; they can quit. They don’t have to do anything that is toxic to them.
I believe that in ancient times we had it right; people knew how to live with joy and happiness. At some point we lost that and the darkness came.
Now, things are changing again. I see people waking up and rediscovering what’s really important and who they really are.
The world is experiencing a positive transformation right now. I see it in myself, too.
Life is Good,
