This artwork is done on paper with acrylic and ink. Belongs to Organic Series "Essence Of Plants."
This topic has emerged from my study of multiple descriptions of the mystery and magic of plants. The most significant description was made by an outstanding occultist, magician and mystic Paul Sedir. He described the magical properties of plants in his book “The Magic of Plants”, which is a valuable contribution to the French esoteric philosophy of the early twentieth century.
Additional creative sources are:
– Arguments of Paracelsus on the relationship between plants and stars.
– Magic druid practices based on the connection of plants with the four elements: Earth, Fire, Wind, & Water.
– Sacred plants in Indian mythology, etc.
In ancient times, in many peoples there was a cult of plants. It is associated with the veneration of trees, lianas, herbs as sacred. Plants were used for offering to the gods, in magical rituals, as symbolic images. Some plants and their parts were considered totems, some were used as talismans protecting the house.
The life of plants is measured and calm. They are wise and observant. They analyze, reflect and comprehend. Sure, they have a soul and the ability to recognize themselves. They are intelligent and active beings who must be respected. Their life passes in full acceptance of the surrounding world without censures and gratitude. Plants give people food, medicine, building materials, perform an ecological function and bring aesthetic pleasure to our lives.I tried to express the essence of plants in my works, to catch that fleeting impression on paper when I am thinking about it. I would also like to draw attention to the issue that every life has its own merits and is worthy of respect and careful attitude, including the life of plants.
