Artist Mission
God is my Mission in life and art. My mission is to know the art of God, the infinite artist within us. Art is a concrete testament proving awareness to be manifestation's source. The process of art-making is an experiential lesson that matter was born from consciousness. Art is a physical consciousness, a dream to exist in the world of forms. Fractals and chambered nautiluses are formed around nature’s perfect algorithm; they are mirrors to God. Art is a mirror of Man's condition. In the age of ignorance (Kali Yuga), agony and ecstasy grew further and further apart, yet more and more intertwined; art mirrored the dual polarity. many say that we have just begun a new age, the golden Sat Yuga, in which man finishes the drama and finds himself. Art is beginning to materialize humankind's new inner workings. Selfless love and devotional art are service to God, paths to enlightenment. It is my…

Artist Mission
God is my Mission in life and art. My mission is to know the art of God, the infinite artist within us. Art is a concrete testament proving awareness to be manifestation's source. The process of art-making is an experiential lesson that matter was born from consciousness. Art is a physical consciousness, a dream to exist in the world of forms. Fractals and chambered nautiluses are formed around nature’s perfect algorithm; they are mirrors to God. Art is a mirror of Man's condition. In the age of ignorance (Kali Yuga), agony and ecstasy grew further and further apart, yet more and more intertwined; art mirrored the dual polarity. many say that we have just begun a new age, the golden Sat Yuga, in which man finishes the drama and finds himself. Art is beginning to materialize humankind's new inner workings. Selfless love and devotional art are service to God, paths to enlightenment. It is my service and joy to share my vision of tomorrow’s world with those in this present era of energetic transition. I'm not claiming to have all the answers, or a total view of the future. I'm simply sharing what I experience, like the artists in every age have done. In meditation I have often felt a unity with everything; I think this feeling is intensifying across the globe. We have already divided the world into smaller and smaller boundaries with more and more names, this is what mind does. We are beginning to shift out of the understanding that mind does all the understanding, and the heart value is sewing all the bits back together as a living whole. Intellect divides; art unites. In love, what is an art critic to do? My mission is to experience and document the state of unbounded, selfless love. This is the thread which strings every bead which is. In this state, each being, each country, each religion, sees itself both as an individual Lego (and accepts that placement among others) as well as the whole structure, the totality of Lego pieces in the tower (the universe). I'm working with the underlying transcendental truths spoken in all religions in relating to humankind's trajectory; what is our path, and where does it go? I'm interested in the Mayan Calendar in relation to the Hindu God Nataraja (a form of Lord Shiva). I feel the end of the Mayan calendar (2012) marks the end of a time comprehensible to that paradigm, (not a black and white "Judgment Day"). The Mayans said that time progresses exponentially faster and faster in gears toward the center of the mandeliac calendar. The very center, however, is absolute stillness, the face of God. This motion is portrayed in many cultures' account of reality. Nataraja is hinduisms vision of this eternal cyclical progression. He dances in an arch of fire, simultaneously creating and destroying the cosmos. This ever-changing nature may appear frightening when we're attached to the world of plural forms. But remembering the thread of life running through each of our centers, we remember that never was a time when we were not, and always shall we be. As is the atom, so is the planet. Personal feeling mimics collective feeling. Healing yourself is healing the earth and healing the earth is healing yourself. Our eternal nature coexisting with our transitory embodiment is what I make art about. Art represents a preservation of present moments to me, an unwinding of the notions "past" and "Future". When my art shares the experience of transcending space and time, I am happy.

Gnomic Bio:
I was born on March 17, 1985, and grew up in a country outskirt of Fairfield, Iowa. My parents, Mark and Alexandra Stimson, had moved there to be involved with the blossoming Transcendental Meditation community and start a family. Much of my immediate and extended family members are artists and meditators; this lifestyle is in my lineage and upbringing. I was educated alongside my siblings, Albert and Rae, through Fairfield’s community of home scholars. At fifteen, I left the familiarity of Fairfield to study visual art at Interlochen Arts Academy, a boarding arts high school in Michigan for two years. I returned to Fairfield before my senior year for self-study and re-centering. Next I journeyed to Baltimore, to attend Maryland Institute, College of Art. I ventured into an exploration of darkness and the unknown, fueled by the air of a hurting city. I made passionate works, observing with innocent awe that people carried so much pain on their backs and never found respite. I then decided the only way to study anything, especially art, is to study Self. I met Mata Amritanandamayi (Amma) in 2003 and she filled my life with love and meaning. In her divine presence, I saw my art and healing practices as not only a path to Self-Realization, but as a path of service to humankind. Amma brought me to the awareness that Lord Shiva is my beloved deity, and initiated me in his mantra. Amma gave me the name Amarnath (pronounced Ah-Mar-Not), meaning “Lord Shiva, God beyond the Gods”.
