Artist's Statement

It is the exchange from simple to complex themes interpreted on a level that all can relate to. This back and forth navigation of vibration and frequency has great influence on my painting style as I calculate everything I do in my work through the feeling and navigation of energy. I live for this.

 

What brings me back to my warrior spirit is the reminder of my personal power to create. I can transform and raise all energies into a higher frequency. As all who live in the matrix, I am often being pulled towards lower vibrations but I constantly invite myself to lift my personal vibration and shift my viewpoint of what is occurring on the screen of this dimension. I have urgency behind these shifts because I believe that every time I make a personal shift, every time I heal or uplift some aspect within myself, I am adding to the healing energy of the collective. I am as everybody else an important aspect in the collective consciousness. I must stay committed.

Once you deprogram yourself, the root of everything is love. The fears inflicted by our society are what prevents us from connecting with the collective consciousness. Only when one breaks free from these illusionary boundaries can they truly be present with the root of it all — love.

 

When I paint I focus on staying connected and deeply grounded in my heart space. This way I can flow with my deepest truth onto and within the piece. I always find myself being connected with everything.

It does not serve us to continue playing at a low vibration and frequency. We are destroying ourselves, the planet, and each other. We all must raise our vibration and frequency.

We are transformers of our reality, we have the tools to tap into energetic alchemy. The shift and the transmutation of energy from patterns of dysfunction to patterns of empowerment and grace is a process I am committed to for the rest of my days.

Once you operate from the frequency of the heart, the matrix loses its influence. 

Biography

Franz Klainsek is a contemporary American artist of Cuban and Austrian descent. Klainsek addresses the societal programming and its systematic effect on the human mind through his work and explores the question of man’s struggle to find Truth.

This strong symbolism in Franz’ work is represented in many forms and methods. Frequent materials used in his work are nails of gold. Nails carry a history of representing suffering leading to enlightenment and are references in theological philosophies within the bible, in Buddhism and in Hindu records. Franz uses nails as a means to represent the strength of the human spirit, a narrative that is a common thread throughout Franz’ body of work.

Upon his return from his first residence deep within the Amazon region in Peru (in 2013), where he spent months in isolation practicing shamanism with Shipibo Indians, Franz honed his signature painting style of obsessive movements of pointillism, scribbling, elusive symbols and characters. Franz’ work is based on conceptual art and illustrates some attributes of abstract expressionism, surrealism and autobiographical references.
