Arrested Expansion or Cardiac Arrest | esoteric interior concept
Arrested Expansion or Cardiac ArrestOriginally, the Arrested Expansion picture was contemplated as a symbolic scene that combines self-excluding objects which are rarely or never to be seen together in real life. Look at the classic combination of fire, air and water which are the “prime components” of life on earth. In this case, there is a bizarre human made architectural establishment, a wild costal shoreline, and a “medieval” aircraft. They say that when the balloon goes up, it does no good. And the objects in this hall of generous proportions can easily make the viewer feel claustrophobic, dreamlike, and surreal because of this unreal inadequacy. The resulting sensation can be similar to a medical emergency-induced mental delusion.
Most people may already have had to deal with ASC (changed state of consciousness). ASC can arise with physical and mental overstrain, deep feelings, stress, heart failure, or as a result of extreme concentration and overexertion. ASC is accompanied by a change in the perception, thinking and psychophysical capabilities of a person. The altered consciousness has greater mobility than usual. Because of its uniqueness, it is impossible to explain the nature and essence of these experiences. Mystical experience cannot be described and translated verbally. Mystical visions are a vision of unanimity. Under special states of consciousness, even travel to the unconscious sphere of the psyche is possible. Events occur not only in three-dimensional space and linear time. An important characteristic of psychedelic states is the transcendence of the acute difference between matter, energy and consciousness. Transcendence is a way out of bounds.
All of the above should have been said, because the notion of "transcendental" is fully consistent with the analysis of the works such artist as George Grie. The meaning of his compositions, themes, the synthesis of objects and space become clear. The artist has a rare gift - a transcendental imagination and vision. His subjects, techniques, coloring his graphic works help the viewers to get free from their material nature and to touch something beyond the bounds of reality. His entry into the world of surreal fine-art began with traditional artistic techniques of the imaging – oil paints and pencils. However, the artist’s vision was difficult to implement utilising the common visual techniques. In the end, that led him to digital art. With the help of computer technology, he creates pseudo photographic, ultra-realistic images of parallel realities, apocalyptic landscapes, mythical subjects, portraits, and fantasies. He combines the reality and dreams, phantasmagoric themes and allusions. Digital technologies such as three-dimensional, drawing and mat-panting software applications (digital art) opened to the artist a new inexhaustible potential.
George Grie's paintings are a way out of the horizon of possible, the way where the unreal becomes real. He reveals himself in each of his works as an artist with an unlimited imagination and incredible conceptual ideas. His compositions are a synthesis of psychology, philosophy, esotericism, fantasies, and emotions. It is a synthesis of plasticity, colors, and shapes. The interrupted expansion or stopping of the heart is precisely the work that helps to get rid of material nature and to touch something beyond the bounds. It is a subtle immaterial world that is not perceived by our senses. Each of us has own distinct experience. Our ASC that we find every night in our dreams is a way out into another reality. Everything there created with the help of thoughts and experience. The natural laws of our world do not work there.
It can be assumed that a balloon is a prisoner in this room. Let's take a closer look. The exquisite interior of the place reminds us the Versailles palaces of France. The hall is simple, strict, harmonious and similar to the architecture of classicism. It is characterized by return to the ancient fundamentals: colonnades, porticos, reliefs, statues, elongated windows, doors, and attuned proportions. The elegant and aristocratic space is beautiful. But the captive or perhaps a visiting guest is also a magnificent; it is a fabulously handsome wanderer. The first hot air balloon inventors are the French brothers Montgolfier. The aircraft is decorated with dragon ornaments and monograms; its beauty is consonant with the palace, under the high vaults of which it hovered. If you look at the picture for a long time, then there comes feeling of movement. Montgolfier carefully moves along the walls, rises up and down. But the reality of the palace conflicts with the reality of the sphere. They belong to the different nature elements, the craft to the skies and the interior of the earth. Although, they look harmonious, this coexistence is not possible in real life. This notion applies to the sea wave on the parquet flooring of the hall as well. Altogether, this creates a feeling of claustrophobia, a convulsive attempt to find a way out of virtual captivity. Montgolfier is not a lonely guest of the hall. It travels here with a cloud entangled in his lines, a wave rolling on the shore and even with coastal stones. A little more time and it will probably pass through the framework of the atrium and the room will become empty ... or maybe not.*
