Art Gallery: I Am
with commentary by Michael Schwarz
This month we are pleased to present the work of Jonah Cacioppe, an Australian-born painter who's been extensively involved in the practice of spirituality and its expression in art, youth programs, and leadership development.
"My artistic practice aims at inquiring into the nature of consciousness, in particular the experience of non-dual consciousness described by many of the world's great philosophies and religions, such as Advaita Vedanta and Zen. They suggest that our consciousness and life itself is in essence a unified whole—peaceful, undivided and limitless, the substratum upon which all of life exists. Much of my work aims to reflect and explore this state of non-dual awareness and the expression of our Being within the awesome, beautiful and messy wonder of life. " -Jonah Cacioppe
