Are we drawn to art that mirrors a part of our inner self?
Date: 3/14/2020 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Bro. Pamela McDown 30*
Synopsis: What is it that causes us to have a connection with a certain work of art? In this discussion we will examine art in general and then more specifically the Russian painter Nicholas Roerich (1874 – 1947). He was one of the most mysterious figures of the 20th century. Why? Those who embraced his philosophy experienced something transformative in his Himalayan canvases. However, many contemporaries were skeptical of Roerich’s spiritual mission and tended to dismiss his work as being repetitive and unoriginal. Which was it? Our discussion will explore this question and more. You may be surprised to discover how Roerich’s art relates to your own creativity and Freemasonry.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
