Fusion Art and the Artist Rassouli



Creation is the product of synchronizing our energy with the universe. Once we experience the whole and recognize it, we become aware that we are nothing but the Divine Creative Force.

I do not start a painting with sketches, I do not paint on location and I do not work from photos.

Instead, many mornings, before the dawn, I climb a mountain to its peak. There , sitting in solitude, I observe rising of the sun. I watch plants open their leaves, buds tear up their dresses and the birds sing to the arrival of their creator. There is an interconnected serenity that allows all creatures to experience the divine unity. Having felt that creative energy, I rush to my studio, dip my brush into paint, and let it move freely on canvas.

My paintings are inspirational for they allow the observer to experience infinite viewpoints and perceptions. They are not abstract for they represent what is actually more real than what our eyes are able to see. They allow the viewers to be inspired by taking their own perception beyond their senses and their surroundings. "Relationship" is the most important aspect of my work. I believe that dream and reality coexist in this world. Light and shadow, nature and concepts, technology and feeling, the actual and the imaginary exist together. My art expands on the metaphysical and expressive ideas that I have drawn from Near Eastern mysticism: investigation of the nexus of internal and external universes. All things are connected in a cosmic web. To me, the interrelations and interactions between the parts of the whole are more important than the parts themselves. That is why I like to paint motion with no objects to move, action without players, and dance without dancers.

I work intuitively. When I paint, I am mindless, yet I am conscious. I feel that my timeless inner presence is a medium that carries that which I am not aware. I like to share my feeling of joy and exuberance with others. I like to show devotion and love and all other pleasures of the world in their most sensual grace and timelessness. ~ Freydoon Rassouli
