9780835609043: Soul of Light: Works of Illumination

The visionary art of Portuguese artist Joma Sipe is all about light-not the ordinary light of day but the light of spiritual illumination, which brilliantly radiates from the over one hundred, full-color images in this stunning book. Sipe thinks of his work as sacred geometry that unites this temporal world with higher planes. Each painting thrills with the dispersion and concentration of light that seems to emanate from every line. Sipe regards it as springing from the heart of the universal Energy that shines forth in everything that exists.

According to Sipe, his paintings come completely from inner inspiration. As if by their own volition, the thin silver or gold ink pen he holds will begin to move until the canvas is filled. Sipe then energizes certain points in the drawing with crystals, a process that infuses the work with spiritual intensity.

Finally, he adds light and soft-color computer effects to achieve an ethereal quality

Many works in this volume are also accompanied by his mystical poetry.

Since childhood, Sipe has been influenced by painters of the late nineteenth-century Symbolist Movement. He feels profoundly connected with early Theosophist H. P. Blavatsky and believes his works "not only provide an image of the nucleus of the universal brotherhood of humanity, they also mirror the laws of nature and the powers latent in humankind." Sipe has also studied Rudolf Steiner, Eliphas Levy, G. I. Gurdieff, the contemporary Gnostics, and the spirituality of Hindu teacher Paramahansa Yogananda and Eckart Tolle, who in turn led him to 'A Course in Miracles'. His knowledge of occult anatomy and the chakras, meditation, alchemy, and the Kabbalah contributes to the wealth of esoteric wisdom he brings to bear in his art. All helps him reflect on canvas his powerful sense of the sacred that seems to illuminate the very being of the viewer as well as of the artist and his visionary world.

About the Author:

Joma Sipe owns a studio in the City of Vila Nova de Gaia, near Portugal. Early in his career, he painted ordinary motifs as landscapes and facades, using oils and acrylics with exuberant colors. Soon, he realized he could use his paintings to express his inner spiritual feelings and promptly began to do so. At the age of 17, Joma saw an advertisement in the local newspaper advertizing "Meditation and Concentration Courses," and upon arriving found himself at a mystical school called "The Gnostic Movement." He stayed there for some time, learning deeper occult and esoteric knowledge about every mystical aspect of all the world's religions and philosophies. These teachings and experiences would become the basis of all his art. Joma's painting process starts with a simple blank canvas, where he sits and waits for inspiration. Once this happens, he begins drawing lines with gold and silver ink, using Sacred Geometry to create his designs. He then uses intuition and his own inner vision to locate and enhance energy points throughout the painting. In each work, there exists a dispersion and concentration of light that emanates from each line. The principle goal in each painting is to transmit an inner spiritual image or sacred feeling through these lines and energy points.

Review:

Drawing on mystic traditions as diverse as Hinduism, ancient Kabbalah, Theosophy, Gnosticism, Buddhism, Eckart Tolle, and The Course in Miracles, Sipe has created 100 drawings, using computer enhanced gold, silver, and crystal. Beautiful and inspiring, these drawings bring esoteric wisdom to life. They draw the reader in and chart a course from darkness to spiritual light, as the inner illumination of the sacred wisdom of the ages flows out of this visionary artwork. Intended as tools for meditation, they are equally intriguing as beautiful, mysterious visual images. This book is truly an uplifting visual treat. Consider displaying the book with stand-alone crystals, devotional sculpture, or other beautiful objects, and let your customers discover it for themselves. --Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight

"This is an extraordinary and beautiful book consisting mainly of intricate illuminated geometrical paintings of great power. The author has been inspired by the work of HP Blavatsky and Eckhart Tolle, among others. He explains his painting process, and there is a fascinating initial chapter showing the difference between the version with geometrical forms and the final illuminated one. Subsequent chapters represent spiritual forms such as chakras, mandalas and the tree of life, as well as themes like cathedrals of the soul and portals of the spirit. The paintings would be suitable for silent and inspiring contemplation." --Network Review, Winter 2012

"The use of light radiating through rectangles, circles, and triangles connects us with the eternal energy of the universe. Sipe's mystical and occult poems carry this process deeper into our consciousness. It is a good and fine thing to meditate on these illuminating creations since as Yogi Pashupatinath tells us: 'You have come from light and you will go back to light.'" --Frederic Brssat, Spirituality & Practice

"The book 'Soul of Light' is simply beautiful. Many of the works are accompanied by poetry from the artist to provide a glimpse into his mind about the piece. The pages are entirely black which helps highlight the artwork." -- Rebecca Elson, The Magical Buffet

"If the purpose of spiritual art is to take us to the intuitive archetypal dimensions of consciousness, then the artist Joma Sipe has succeeded. Quest books is to be congratulated for bringing this art to the American audience. Look at it; like me you, too, will have quantum leaps of intuition." --Amit Goswami, Quantum Physicist and the author of and How Quantum Activism can Save Civilization
"Mme. Blavatsky wrote, 'Behold in every manifestation of genius, when combined with virtue, the undeniable presence of the celestial exile, the divine ego whose jailor thou art, O man of matter.' To those gifted with the eyes to see, the universe and its myriad forms are but living light taking shape to the music of the cosmos. In Soul of Light, Joma Sipe unites his illumination-art with original and borrowed poetry, esoteric teachings, and discussions of his creative process to chart the journey of the soul from darkness to light, from the unreal to the Real. These beautiful works of sacred geometry, like Brancusi’s Bird in Space, are meant as vehicles of meditation. As like calls to like, the light of the soul shines forth." -- Finley Eversole, Ph.D., author, Art and Spiritual Transformation

"Joma Sipe gives visual form to the energetic patterns contained in a vast array of spiritual texts and traditions. He generously shares his process of creating these remarkable images that seem channeled through his inner being, enabling the viewer to intuit how each spiritual path is both unique and at its root connected to one infinite Source. This important book instructs us in a way that transcends dogma and touches the universal spark within us all." --Pat B. Allen, artist and author of Art is a Way of Knowing and Art is a Spiritual Path

"Using color and sound, with words and without, Soul of Light reverently presents the multidimensional depths of our universe. A timeless treasure with which to vision and dream." -- Ruth A. Drayer, author, Nicholas & Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists and Peacemakers
