“The agony of breaking through personal limitations is the
agony of spiritual growth. Art, literature, myth and cult, philosophy, and ascetic disciplines are instruments to help the individual past his limiting horizons into spheres ofever-expanding realization.”
― Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces
All of Starz’ artists tap into and explore Joseph Campbell’s notion of “spheres of ever-expanding realization.” Using bold colors and concepts, the artists visually articulate their unique understandings of life and their connections to a higher and greater power.
Through their work and art practice, these international artists are extremely connected to the source of the universe and act as conduits in artistically downloading new ideas and bringing them to our reality in physically aesthetic and conceptually rich forms.
Starz examines this idea that artists are able to transform concepts and ideas into the physical realm. In doing so, they form a connection with viewers, thus bringing new energy and ideas to audiences through their art. Then, through the act of observing, viewers are able to process and internalize the artists’ ideas and adapt them to their own personal ideologies, thus continuing the chain of creation indefinitely.
