Heidi Thompson presents several large energy fields for an exhibition.
STATES OF MIND - Energy Field Paintings Exhibition Proposal - HEIDI THOMPSON It matters not whether you paint abstract or realistic, sculpt with clay or cloth. These are simply mediums, vehicles artists use to transport the viewer. What matters is the destination the vehicle transports us to. STATES OF MIND is an art exhibition comprising fifteen large energy fields. Its purpose is to create an environment using light and colour that altogether facilitates an energizing experience in the viewer. Energy fields, as I call them, are paintings created with thousands of electric like flecks, dots, lines and light. Each field depicts predominantly one colour: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, white and black. The colour frequencies influence the viewer’s emotions while triggering a flow of subtle physical sensations. In this exhibit, the art is not the focus; rather the focus is on the viewer. If the viewer stops gazing at the work and turns his attention inward he will feel sensations. If he remains focused on these sensations he will experience change in his state of mind. Some viewers describe this experience as being in the “now”. Experiencing reality by feeling sensations connects us with who and what we are. Sensations indicate actual life - not imagined or conceptualized, but moving, pulsating, living life.
