Desert Wisdom

The mind can be a tornado, a whirlwind in our head. The desert knows whirlwinds. Sudden giant dust storms that seemingly come out of nowhere, and envelop everything in its path. Total blindness. Unless of course you are equipped with the right paraphernalia, such as ski googles. Even then, the dust impedes the vision. When in the middle of one while riding a bike, one cannot help but think that an accident looms. Despite the chaos of the dirt filled sky, there are pockets of clarity. Enough to get you from one point to another. In this situation time seemingly stops, or should I say loses meaning. There is no time for thinking. One must do their best to tune in with the rhythm of the desert, and the wind! Without submitting to panic and doom, one must be in the moment. Trust that the storm will pass. Yes you can try to seek shelter…it is my experience that the desert provides to those who do not seek. This is it’s gift.

The following presentation features a new commission painting that I am working on. I used some of my artistic license and created a document that shows a little section of my painting process. I look at my process like a snowflake. Similar from afar however close up each snow flake is it’s own unique shape and form. Similarly each painting I do requires or asks for a slightly different approach than the last. This is important for me as an artist, it keeps me interested in what I am doing, and often new discoveries occur. Enjoy!

And now a short film by Hälts, featuring him working on a new commission painting, while looking for peace in the chaos that is life, questions endlessly left unanswered, solace found in Nature and in the studio. Soundtrack is called ‘under the watchful eye of the surrounding Nature’

Hi my name is hälts, I am an artist, geographer, filmmaker and mostly a human being. Art is a gift that has been with us for time immortal. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I consider myself to be a hybrid artist. I make murals, digital art, painting (acrylic and watercolour), filmmaking, photography and drawing. I inspire while also being inspired. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. I care about this planet, and all the life it sustains. Thank you kindly, hälts
