Through the Creative Arts..A Future!

All joy on your sacred journey upon eternity’s timeless oceans..every now and again we simply need to take the time to safely leave our vessel at anchor.. whilst we ground ourselves on the bedrock of our dear earth.. luxuriating in the serene beauty.. which is ever within and around us when we take the time to stop and look..for then such peace from this light sublime fills us through its brilliant shine as a sense of sacred union heals our soul with timeless tides so swiftly rolling through our soul
as basking in the sun of God upon these hallowed shores with heart aligned all peace of mind this blessed day unfolds its way as celestial oceans crest and spray as all love and devotion plays through our loving ways so enraptured with life’s timeless gaze…
Grace and Gratitude on your voyage of Self discovery …:))

Through The Creative Arts.. A Future!

“Great art has a quality of the eternal no prey to fashion this
since the first Divine impulse to make marks on cave walls
We have been driven to convey messages to our fellow man
on the hunt for our survival ever has it been a tool to measure
in the hearts and souls of man the breadth of our universe
the wonders ever there waiting to be touched upon by our
questing need for answers to life’s eternal plans

How can art been measured if not in the touching of our senses
where is a meaningful measure if not through a loving heart
from a place of unconditional non judgement we can weigh the
subject there from this eternal place of dispassion we can
apportion our perceptions and present them to our public
with our love and thanks for the joy of sharing life’s journey
from this sacred place

Without love without wonder how can mankind ever aspire to
join the celestial ranks beauty ever informs us and on a chemical
level it heals us through our ‘dna’ what a joy in this knowing
what a duty we have to present this if we wish to co-create a
finer world ever it is in our perception that we stand or fall in life
what an opportunity we do have in this eternal moment to grow
a better place through the quality of our intentions through all
of the arts we do build a better world…

In this I rest my case and ask each to search their hearts and to
present their sense in all of this.. in the sharing of our knowledge
we each do grow it makes for me a joy of journey when we
collaborate together from a place of brotherly/sisterly empathy
from this sacred understanding we can construct the blueprint
for our lives such a peace in the knowing that we don’t have
to live from misperception and suffer the hell
of blighted lives…. anymore..

to those of you who have come this far you are the future!
humbly I ask thee to vision wisely, for we do get that we wish for
unfortunately we needs be more careful, for we often attract that which
we least want, through the power of our unguarded emotions for to this,
our universe does readily respond.

ever are we prey to our perceptions and how valiantly do we patch
and bail our ‘leaking ship.’ It is time to see if this present world’s ‘ship’
in its present leaky form should be replaced… if so, what lessons can
we learn in the building of a more seaworthy vessel for we are each
the architects and the boat builders of our own desires this has taken
us to this time and place ever has it been thus…..until now……..” Au

About Alasdair Urquhart Artist and Poet

I am an Artist, Painter, Writer, Poet , Illustrator, Professional Creative Since I was a young child, the exploration of my universe, has been through mark making. Through the innocence of this process, I found a means of communication with others.......a point of contact. Plants, Animals, People, Birds , Insects....... The Cosmos itself............... ..began to be revealed, before my wide, curious eyes. It opened my life, my heart, my mind, something......... fundamental, was touched deep within me, each and every time. Always new....... It was alchemy.... It was beautiful..... I felt my spirit soar........for I had found, A Universal language. For Man it has ever been thus; since earliest times, it has been one of our most basic modes of interaction. Art, draws on the essence of Nature, the Universe itself; connecting us to her rhythms and illimitable moods. When Ancient Man made marks on cave walls it was to reveal to their peers, the mysteries of also its practicalities; for the need for interdependence in daily duties, if they were to survive.......... never mind thrive. Today, there has never been a greater need for Art. Art celebrates all of the senses; giving the body balance and harmony, the soul and mind, a sense of belonging. In the natural world, the function of each organism is to realise its fullest potentialities - - that is its fundamental ethos. We have a need, and duty, to create a Society in which, each one of us, has a chance to develop, their creative abilities to the fullest, in a caring, nurturing environment. We need to redefine our vision of how we wish the world to be ...... The eternal moment is now. for our world is perishing through this very lack. Art works on the inner and the outer senses. Our children are the future! Unless they are nurtured and esteemed through the Arts the present behavioural poverty in our Society will continue to spiral down........." How would you describe your style of art? It is an internal response to the energies passing through me in the Eternal Now. it has a figurative, colourful element which is a partial response to the visual impressions received. It is a synthesis of all of my senses. ..especially of Intuition and Knowing ....those most internal of journey senses. Describe one of your paintings: It is a portrait of a child...Leela....aged three Her Grandmother commissioned it. My brief was to capture the essence of her nature... before her elfin quality, was lost, to social patterning, and conditioning, which commences, when a child begins to name things.... and their relationship with the essence of an object is lost. She is situated in her garden, a wonderful space, which has a Narnia feel to it. It has been developed over a period of months. On each visit I am growing more empathic to the little one's vision and journey. How do you decide on your subject matter? It decides for me :-) It is an internal process.. a beat begins , an upsurge of energy, taste , touch, smell.. ..all the senses are heightened. I feel gently led .... the internal process is partly rationalized by discerning these feelings, articulating them.... often first in words.... free associations help the fluency, patterns emerge.... ..often unexpectedly ..I love it ...a dance begins and I am led...lovingly on a new journey..... ....always different:) Many of my paintings depict richly detailed scenes and reflect my own deep interest in the lives of people and their work. I believe that..... Lives are not ordinary – all our lives and the way we live them and interact with our environment are important. I hold up a mirror to people and situations. Due to the sale of the previous lovely studio..I have had a beautiful new studio built in my garden.. I am invited out to paint on Tresco, the Isles Of Scilly; The famed sub-tropical Abbey Gardens, and wonderfully diverse geography of this sacred Isle always provide a rich vein of inspiration for me. I spend a lot of time on Dartmoor painting the scenes and wildlife, and on and by the rivers Exe, Teign and Dart in Devon. In Cornwall, I enjoy exploring the coves and cliff paths, the beaches and Ports. Another of my loves is rural France. Initially invited over by Monaco Fine Arts in the early 90’s to paint the scenery of Southern France and Northern Italy; I developed a love of the area and spend as much time as possible exploring and painting in the wine regions particularly. I studied at Dundee College of Art from 1974.... finishing my postgraduate studies there in 1979. I won scholarships from the British Council to Budapest Fine Art Academy, and the Elizabeth Greenshield scholarship twice from Montreal, Canada. I have been exhibited at the Scottish Royal Watercolour Society, the Royal Watercolour Society, and the Royal Institute. Also in numerous galleries in towns across England, Scotland and Wales. My work has also been exhibited and in private collections in Europe, America, Canada and Japan. I have received sponsorship from Rosenstiel’s Fine Art Publishers, London, residencies at Grizedale, and Farringdon. My paintings have been published by Rosenstiel’s, Medici and Parnassus.

    The essential feature of the spiritual world of the artist is the depth of the experience.
    Painting – endless mystery, as mysterious universe for mankind. Flying into the unknown magical flick of the wings of the mysterious Firebird is a creative way of the artist. Each of your work excites our souls like a sense of great hope of life … Your pictures insightful, bright, happy!
      The artist reveals himself in each of his paintings, for in them He Captures the image of Truth and Love ..

    Beauty can make a good heart,
    Extinguish the storm of resentment,
    The one who understood its essence and meaning to the end,
    Acquired an incomparable happiness.
