When one sits in meditation one creates his/her own sacred body temple, a pyramidal body temple! The pyramidal shapes can be found through each of our own internal universes from the structure of our blood, pyramidal brain cells and that the proportions of our body all unfold from the Fibonacci ratio which also manifests as the Fibonacci triangle.

The heavens above the Buddha are floating cities of light inspired by the pyramidal towers of Angkor Wat, in Cambodia. The 5 centre spires of Angkor Wat represent the Mt Meru – the mountain that sits at the centre of the world in Hindu cosmology. Mountains in essence are the pyramids of nature and are revered as places of sacred energy and connection to the heavens. At the centre bottom of this piece is Mt Kailash, the most sacred mountain to both Hindu and Buddhist cultures. Mt Kailash is also said to represent Mt Meru, the centre of creation.

Within this work are also water crystals (snowflakes) and crystals of the earth. Within most of these structures we find pyramidal and hexagonal geometries which reflect the same geometries we find with our personal body temples. As within, so without. As above, so below!

Artwork from - Tri-Unity Art Series 2017

Tri-Unity is part of a greater body of work from Jessica Curtis’ recent solo show at the West Torrens Auditorium Gallery, 2017; an exhibition of paintings by exploring the trinity & hexagonal unfoldments in nature & Supernature.

Pyramidal and tetrahedral shapes are found everywhere in nature from the subatomic structure of a platinum crystal to the structure of molecules such as in water to the pyramidal brain cells. Everywhere we peer into nature we will find pyramids that unfold from this basic structure into more complex structures such as hexagonal arrangements to the Platonic solids.

The pyramid has been a geometry that has been revered in stone for thousands of years from the great pyramids of Egypt, South America, China to Bosnia and beyond. Pyramids are found across the world, in the Pacific and also in the roof tops of temples like Angkor Wat and conic forms of church and cathedral steeples.

The use of pyramidal forms in art & architecture is often an exercise in the exploration and application of sacred geometry. Geometry becomes sacred when it is taken into sacred focus & purpose in conscious application. The perfection of the shapes within nature consciously applied to express divine perfection, the unfoldment of Supernature. Sacred geometry has been used since ancient times as way to pay homage to the Divine.

The triangle or pyramidal form also has symbolic meanings in many cultures. One of the main symbols has been that of unity that unfolds into a trinity such a trinity of deity such as The Father, Son & Holy Spirit, Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu or the tradition of the Trikaya in the Buddhist tradition when the Buddhas come in groups of three.

In Search of the Divine - Jessica Curtis

In Search of the Divine engages in creative projects & collaborations that bring the spiritual & scientific together; inspiring a higher dialogue on the themes pondered by the great mystical traditions of the Earth, which looked to the stars as home.

Core to her art practice, Jessica Curtis, uses art as a transformative vehicle to assist in the reorientation of consciousness to a multi-dimensional perspective. Thus creating a point of reference to unveil the divine template behind these times of great transition and transformation unfolding on Earth; ultimately fostering a spark of divine recognition.
