AngelicView: This amazing painting by Akiane Kramarik was just finished (posted online August 27th) called “Entanglement”. She also posted a video about it. Tears came to my eyes as I watched and listened to her video.
I am a painter, too. No… I’m not ‘a painter’. I paint. I do it just for fun. I can’t even imagine having her talent. Genius. You all know that she’s only about 20 (or maybe 21?) and she’s had this painting ability that reached saint-hood status around the age of eight.
So anyways, here’s this painting and this video that she made about it. I really want everyone to hear what she says, so I’m going to do a transcript of the video for those people who cannot watch the video, cannot hear, or do not have the seven and a half minutes of time. It’s just that mind-blowing (to me). I hope it is to you, too.
(See written transcript below the video.)
It’s three in the morning now and I had this very strange dream last night. It was really vivid, too. The most unusual colors I rarely ever use… like red oxide, lots of bronze, golds, some silvers, too.
The vision that I had is really hard to describe. But the moment I start painting it’ll become clearer to me. So let’s just wait and see how it will all unfold in the end.
All I’m feeling is this bronze fog… and this intense buzzing feeling. Each and every brush stroke is making a different sound. I may not be able to duplicate the sound. Actually, I can not duplicate it. But I can with colors in a rough way.
I don’t see sharp light… just translucent luminosity.
I just felt like I needed to place a strange form. It feels so light.
With more lines added… I’m smelling something strange. At this point I’m starting to get headaches from this intense fragrance.
All intertwined with sound and color… the more I paint, the more I’m journeying into this world. These forms are interacting and pulling me into this unexplainable synchronicity of sensations.
It is not just this macro world with these giant forces of the universe… but, at the same time, the same thing is happening on a molecular level. It feels like I’m in the middle of this time and space explosion.
…I just need to add a few more touches… it’s almost completed… I feel relaxed…
It’s just the way I saw it. The creation of an intricate time and space tapestry.
Wow, I really thought I was going to finish this in a day or so. But it’s been a week already. I always miscalculate time.
In this painting I felt like I was part of this macro and micro world at the same time. In some measures I felt like… like the vital movements of the universe have been… have been finally captured.
I always enjoy signing, but, for this particular painting… it can be done even without my signature. But, for now… I’ll sign “From All of Us“… because we are all part of the same amazing, transforming universe.
