The serendipity of 7 painters, painting A Crow's Nest & 2 Punjab Ladies

Serendipity Art is art by making connections and being in the right place at the wrong time or the right place at the right time.
In the quiet chambers of their souls, seven painters gather, their hearts unrolled. They wield their brushes like wands of fate, Dancing with colours and transcending the state.
Aurora, the Dreamweaver, whispers to the stars, Her palette ablaze with celestial scars. She paints the dawn’s blush, the twilight’s sigh; guided by moonbeams, she lets her spirit fly.

Zephyr, the wanderer, roams the open fields, His canvas a meadow where wild secrets yield. With strokes of wind and whispers of leaves, He captures the essence of what the heart believes.

Luna, the mystic, dips her brush in moonlight. Her eyes reflect infinite and bright constellations. She weaves cosmic tales on her canvas of night, where stardust and dreams entwine in flight.

Ember, the firebrand, paints with flames aglow, Igniting passion, burning bridges, letting emotions flow. His strokes sear truth into existence’s core, A phoenix rising from ashes forevermore.

Sylvan, the forest sage, listens to ancient trees. Their whispers reveal secrets carried on the breeze. His colours blend moss and bark, fern and dew, A symphony of growth, life’s eternal debut.

Azure, the ocean seer, dives into cerulean depths, Her canvas an abyss where mermaids take their breaths. She captures the ebb and flow, the salt and spray, A tidal rhythm that guides her every sway.

Crimson, the heart’s alchemist, knows love’s sweet pain. His brush dipped in longing, in joy, in rain. He paints the ache of parting, the ecstasy of touch, Each stroke a heartbeat, a testament to love’s clutch.

Together, they form a tapestry of intuition, Seven painters bound by unseen vision. Their art transcends the ordinary, the mundane, For they paint with their souls, leaving no refrain. AI, Copilot.

A Crow's Nest & 2 Punjab Ladies

Pop pop Dazzled by Everyday, Cut-Up: I’ve taken recent and archived citizen-free news stories and interlaced them with various sounds and visuals to create this YouTube. This process transforms the news into art, crafting a fresh narrative akin to the cut-up technique (or ‘découpé’ in French). The original method involves dissecting and reassembling written text to create a new text and, consequently, a new sound and image experience. The roots of this concept can be traced back to the Dadaists of the 1920s, but it was writer William S. Burroughs who brought it to the forefront in the 1950s and early 1960s. My understanding and application of the cut-up technique were learned within the walls of the old Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA), 100 Years. 

   

Nagar Kirtan Sikh Parade Edmonton 2024

In Sikhism, the number 13 holds a special significance due to its phonetic resemblance to the word “Tera” in Punjabi, which means “Yours.” This association symbolizes devotion to the Creator, to whom everything belongs. The concept is deeply rooted in a story about Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. While he was weighing provisions, upon reaching the number thirteen, he continued to say “Tera, tera, tera…” as a form of meditation, expressing that everything is God’s (“Yours, Yours, Yours…”). This act reflected his spiritual message that all we have is by the grace of the Divine and ultimately belongs to the Creator. Therefore, the number 13 transcends its numerical value to embody a profound spiritual teaching within Sikhism. It emphasizes humility, gratitude, and the surrender of material possessions to the divine will. It’s a reminder that in the universe's grand scheme, we are all part of a more significant creation under the purview of a higher power.

My 2016, January to November, Fire and Rain art project on Alberta wildfires and flooding, as described by Artificial Intelligence: Your motivation to create the Fire and Rain art project during the 2015 Alberta wildfires 9 years ago is deeply resonant. The impact of those wildfires on air quality was significant, leaving an indelible mark on the region. Let’s delve into the details:

Your art project became a testament to the interconnectedness of nature, humanity, and creativity. It echoed the nursery rhyme about crows—“Tell No Tales”—as if urging us to listen closely to the whispers carried by the wind. Thank you for using your art to raise awareness and evoke empathy during a critical moment in Alberta.
