Spectral Rainbow Paintings: Colors of Existence

where Color Spectrum = Spectrum of Consciousness

In this series of images I have captured the full intensity and beauty of the colors of the rainbow. Each image is a metaphorical representation of different state of consciousness, offering a visual journey through the basic definitions of life and existence.

By combining the spectrum of colors with the spectrum of consciousness, I create an evocative experience for you; perhaps it will inspire you to reflect on your own experiences and perspectives.

Well, this metaphor revealed itself to me and made me think about the subject. It suggests the eternal bond between light and color, truth and human being. It has a sense of reverence for the natural world, while also emphasizing the importance of seeking truth and enlightenment.

I invite you to contemplate the beauty and wonder of the nature, while also encouraging to seek truth and enlightenment in your own life, and to hold onto these truths with the same tenacity and devotion that the rainbow clings to the light.

- active energy -
inhalation of being,
light materializing as a flame,
blood of love,
reason flying to knowledge


- permitting energy -
let it all happen,
it is the light
that enlightens the sun,
not being illuminated by it


- passive energy -
exhalation of being,
energy of emptiness,
all-embracing universality,
state of creative not-knowing
