28 August to 10 September
Connaughton’s art is from a deep clairvoyant kindergarten of spiritual imageries, away from decadence which is the sleep in our dying where our evolving is the life of our spirits – sharing together art in the arts and waking up from ‘atavistic clairvoyance’ which is a very psychological trait in Ireland, alluding from a superiority complex and carried down from the lost Hibernian wisdom.
The need to be fully awake from spiritual illiteracy makes spiritual science experience so valuable. Human spiritual consciousness is drawing to the angelic. Through anthroposophical science and esoteric wisdom in new religion and homes social in scattered parts of Europe where the Celtic spread ended. Man’s materialism is leading to a near ZOMBIE state of mind, cathartic and apocalyptic especially the drug bound.
We need the humanism of Ivor Browne to help us with this new scientific and spiritual awareness and not fall into dead thinking. We need the formative growths like bio-dynamics in our food, something like the Waldorf Schooling in our educative learning through science, art and religion (spiritual).
Connaughton is also a self-published poet. He is involved with poetry events in Howth and writes with the Bayside Writer’s Group. Maeve Murran will be his guest speaker at the Opening Reception of ‘Waking Up’ on 1st September.
