Exploring Inner Balance
Friday 4 March 7pm - 8.30pm
with Caroline Chanter
Gerard Wagner worked with the Representative of Humanity as an image of balance applicable to polarities in the human being, in general life, and in art. Polarities between the ‘opposing forces’, represented by Lucifer and Ahriman, exist also in the colours. Because of this, painting can consciously become a balancing act between the ‘luciferic’ and ‘ahrimanic’, which in turn unites the heart of the painter with the feeling of inner balance that has arisen through the uniting of polarities. Could this be an approach to a new Christian Art?
