THE OTHER DIMENSION. Antuan and the Alchemy of Creativity.
“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious – the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”
– Albert Einstein –
Art has been clustered for more than a century between the failed utopias of modernism, the dead-end of the Postmodernism deconstructive approach. By the strategy of the art market only as a commodity. And the museum sacred vision of art as out of this world objects isolated from everyday life, in exclusion.
As an artist, Antuan claims a new approach to mindfulness around art’s function and reason. Likewise a genuinely sensible artist concerned over the humanizing possibilities of discovery through the art process and its ways of building an enlightened human history and semblance. Also, providing within his inclusive territories of art, science, and life-changing acts, ways of creating a glow of clarity the universe we live.
The Other Dimension is the latest stage of Antuan’s artistic developments. It is showing an artist, who considers the universe, the infinite, and the eternal from a range of different scientific, philosophical, and cultural positions. All integrated into one proposal while engaging the viewer in the enigma and awe of universal concepts.
Antuan envisions a world where creative minds, scientists, true leaders, and spiritual practitioners gather around art to learn and share towards creating a better world. Art as an expression of the potential wholeness of the human being. In fact, harmonizing mind intelligence, the sensitivity to the feelings, and the wisdom of nature and its cosmic law. Without denying or promoting the underlying diverse human cultural foundations.
The Other Dimension holds as an iconic date, the year of 2016. In which the totality of the Museum of Contemporary Art –Miami, became a three-level visual narrative. Experience, introspection, and luminosity, through the works of Antuan. In which elements of social commentary, environmental concerns, sacred geometry, vibration, the human grid, and universal human codes, emerged as parts of Antuan’s artistic journey lead by his cosmology vision of life, the universe, nature, and social concerns.
The Other Dimension shows an artist, who considers the universe, the infinite, and the eternal from a range of different scientific, philosophical, and cultural positions. In fact, all integrated into one proposal while engaging the viewer in the enigma and awe of universal concepts.
So, his work becomes a new consciousness’s as an approach related to the constant human concern for universal communication. Through forms, symbols, and codes, connecting the methodologies of artistic production in harmony with the tactics of scientific abstraction, human wellbeing, and social thinking envisioned as the other dimension of art.
Antuan’s conceptual framework holds visionary approaches, not necessarily interpreted by the art trends of our time. He is an integrator of human experiences, a visual researcher of extensive experimentation. With profound humanism, he envisions his art as a contribution to a new conception of our being in a complex world.
For him, the work of art holds no utopias, but ideas made real and imposed on the world through the temporary harmony of art. Understood as formally conscious, culturally inclusive, dialogical, critical, theoretically firm, and socially engaged communication, yet one that is open, innovative and tolerant to emerging of interaction. On his career of more than 30 years his latest of development is the Other Dimension body of work.
He is revealing mysteries of the hidden world by way of a journey and immersion in the universe.
By the routes of the comprehension of cosmology, ontology, and metaphysics, as an awareness manifested in art.
