ART AS META-SYN
Mixed MediA, Montage, Book Signing
IONA MILLER & ROBERT NEWMAN
ART AS META-SYN: Art can be therapeutic, both in the process of creation and for the viewer who reacts from personal associations. Art bares the soul, and provides a container for unbridled self-expression. High synergy is a differentiating characteristic of the nonagressive and secure. Beyond synergy is negentropy, the flow of creative connection with Source. Symbolic art has both an emotional and cognitive content. Metaphysical art draws on the multicultural iconography, not only of the globe, but of the Beyond. At its best it embodies and reveal the indomitable human Spirit.
Iona Miller, CHT Consultant and transdisciplinarian Iona Miller is a nonfiction writer, hypnotherapist and multimedia artist doing groundbreaking work on the fusion of science-art, chaos theory, plenum physics, and emergent paradigm shift in experiential psychotherapy, new physics, biophysics, philosophy, cosmology, healing, creativity, qabalah, magick, metaphysics, and society. Rather than having an interest in specific doctrines, I am interested in the EFFECTS of doctrines from religion, science, psychology, and the arts. Our beliefs are the moldable raw material of the psyche, manipulated by governments, media and culture. How do we become what we are and how is that process changing in the near future? Art foretells that process. Author of The Modern Alchemist and The Magical & Ritual Use of Perfumes has shown in South Beach and Phoenix galleries.. http://ionamiller.org and http://ionatopia.50megs.com
