"Nothing is new under the sun." Whether the subject is religion, science, or art, all new ideas emerge from the ones left behind. Knowledge, like a river, flows forward from a previous source. New civilizations grow from the cities preceding them; the burnt ashes of forgotten or dying cultures can feed and fertilize new growth. Consider the truth of this statement and remember it as you look at this collection of photographs I have entitled "As the Old God Collapses, the New God Emerges."
This visible, "natural" world we spend our days in is a reflection of a greater reality. As Manly P. Hall stated in his book The Secret Teachings of All Ages (first published in 1928): "The physical nature of the universe is receptive; it is a realm of effects. The invisible causes of these effects belong to the spiritual world. Hence, the spiritual world is the sphere of causation; the material world is the sphere of effects; while the intellectual - or soul - world is the sphere of mediation."
The artist can be a mediator between these spheres, creating images which are reflections and transmissions from a greater reality beyond the clouded spectrum.of visible light and everyday, half-concious life.
