Absolute Image Lecture Series

In this special three-part lecture series, artist Lawrence Sheaff explores the possibility of embodying the structure of consciousness itself in visual form. Through the systematic application of the complete science of consciousness contained in Maharishi Vedic Science and TechnologySM to the discipline of painting, Sheaff establishes new foundational principles for the visual arts in absolute terms and on a scientific basis. Using his Absolute Image Series of Paintings as a reference point, Sheaff demonstrates that potentially the medium of painting can ascend to absolute or cosmic levels of expression.
