Fine art portraiture with a difference.

In memory of the artist’s birthday, Idalet E Haasbroek Pauw (23 September 1962 – 7 June 2008), I am sharing a portrait with you. 

1985. Artist Idalet. A portrait of Erica. Part One of Two. Signed, framed 30 cm x 21 cm composite artwork on paper.

Part one of this portrait shows a profile of a face, with a four colour graph beneath it that may reflect different planes of existence. The size of the colour blocks may indicate the relative importance of the superconscious (the celestial and upper world), ego-consciousness (the middle world) and the subconscious (the lower world).

Exceptional Artistry by Idalet

The colour blocks, from left to right, may convey a descending level of consciousness where ‘Blue’ relates to a high spiritual realm; ‘Yellow’ relates to the mind realm; ‘Red’ to the physical realm and ‘Grey’ to the lower realm of causation. This correlates to the hierarchy of planes of existence as found in shamanism and the cosmic tree of Yggdrasill. Free art ebooks in pdf format:

To clarify this graph pattern, her later artwork is added below the graph (from left to right):
