” When I graduated Philadelphia College of Art in 1980, I was floundering. I knew making pictures was my imperative, but the fine-art gallery scene was repellant to me.
Then I read Autobiography of a Yogi, by Yogananda. Reading about reincarnation and karma was like the sun emerging from behind thick clouds, life was transformed. I became a student of esoteric wisdom and started meditating, which led to seeing visions on the inner planes. After a couple of years resisting the call, I dedicated myself to painting those images.
The vivid impression I receive is of a completed painting, already real in the etheric realms. It’s a gift and an invitation to do my best to create it. Some of the images are a visitation from the angelic realms. Others come at random moments of stillness, born of simple beauty. Some are commissions, co-created from someone else’s inspiration.” – Bruce Harman
