PEN & INK by RICK BARCHENGER
HIGH PERFUMERY by MATRIARCH
HIGH FASHION by ARONHIX
Since regaining consciousness from spinal surgery seven years ago, Rick has been obsessed with creating amazing mandala style pen & ink drawings. His work has been classified as "Geometric Mysticism" a sacred form of artistic expression that dates back not just to the dawn of man, but the the beginning of creation Itself.
In an age where practically everything is created virtually, Rick continues to channel his artistic "transmissions" using only an ink pen and straight edge.
Often he will begin a drawing without knowing what form it will take, but as the patterns reveal themselves, hidden gateways within the page begin to open.
Such universal pieces conjure something different for each viewer. For those willing to be ravished by art, this unique medium promises a purely transcendental experience of tension and balance.
"Two is the imperfect condition into which being falls when it becomes detached from the Monad of God. Spiritual beings emanating from God are enveloped in the Duad and therefore receive only illusory impressions." Pythagoras
"Duality is polarity, or the alternating cycles of rhythm and harmony which is all good. On the lower levels we lose sight of this high truth and in this loss know only the alternation of extremes: namely light and dark, heat and cold, life and death, youth and age, disease and health, poverty and wealth, sorrow and joy, war and peace, friends and enemies."
