The Path of True Knowledge

On June 11, 2014, in Musing, Painting, by aronimus

Acolytes ride the path of true knowledge.  As they pass the great wondrous workings of nature in the form of huge palm trees, they become aware of something greater than themselves.  An awareness of the cosmos.  The path is like unto a conveyor belt.  Rather than walking the path the acolytes merely stand upon it, watching the great workings go by.  Almost like tourists…   But tourists they are not.  They have chosen the path of enlightenment.  To see beyond the everyday.  The banal.   To see the cosmos for what it is.

The Path of True Knowledge II

Acolytes ride the path of true knowledge

An earlier work by aronimus.  Conceived while taking some down time in his home town after his great roamings across South East Asia.

The Path is frequent subject matter for aronimus.  Inspired by some text from the Theosophical Society. Writings from one of the founders or early members.  Harun does not believe it was Helena Blavatsky whose daughter potentially had a support role as SS High Priestess Oberführer Marianna Blavatsky in Wolfenstein.

On recollection, it could have been Annie Besant (1847–1933), second President of The Theosophical Society from 1907 to 1933.  Harun will endeavour to find the actual quote that inspired him to make the path such a feature of his work.

A Reflection on “Progress”

On June 10, 2014, in Musing, Painting, by aronimus

A reflection on “progress”.  Or what we are led to believe is progress.

An office worker sits hunched over his desk.  Bored out of his mind and his mind it doth wander…  wander or wonder?
It could be that it starts to wander.. and in doing so is free to wonder…    and he ponders..

 

A Reflection on "Progress"

A reflection on “progress”. Or what we are led to believe is progress.

This is one of the earlier works of aronimus.  Indeed, before the manifestation of aronimus from the lesser son that existed before.
The person that went on to be come aronimus aka Harun had been stuck behind a desk for an extended period of corporate toil.  Then one day, whilst browsing the www he did discover an establishment known as The Learning Connexion.  He did abruptly hand in his notice and head off to the hallowed and former consecrated ground of Erskine College.   Former home of an art school know as The Learning Connexion.  For some unbeknown reason, they traded a “c” and a “t” for an x.

This painting was a product of that period.
