The Emperor.

I was meditating on archetypes and fell asleep, this art is from the lucid dream I had. I am observing an alien anthropologist studying and reporting on exceptional subjects of human behaviour. In this case the alien describes The Emperor as a pivotal archetype of human behaviour and influence. He achieves his status by shrouding himself in an invented cult of mystery which is injected into the culture to integrate his position in popular mythology. The Emperor sometimes uses savage methods to prosecute resistance and generously rewards cooperation. After coercing key individuals he becomes an unchallengeable authority and is seen to have absolute power. He is not without his critics, but to some he is god-like and is worshiped, feared, and also loved. The Emperor is perceived as a caring and generous ruler who is also capable of delivering horrific episodes of punishment and cruelty. This assessment is part of an exceptional reporting series by the alien anthropologist on the human condition and includes other subject types.

The Back of Moggs Creek

It was with a whisper and a shiver the day I woke up
The wind marked the moment in my mind
without the wheel or the sword
I approached the dream on foot
Thinking of magic, kind

On a hill with an empty stare
I pondered the blue sea from Moggs to Lorne
A distant passion in my eye
The earth woman she speaks to me
and I know the reason why

The first clue is to feel out of place
Or that you have arrived
Just wake up and accept it’s an illusion
And your soul will survive

But service and works
Or just waiting around
I considered these a while
Be true to yourself first
Is your only obligation in any lifetime

Wake up, a simple start, a surprise
But don’t deny physical pleasures
On earth grounded Gods can die
We are all empty handed, alone on our hills
So accept your dawning, and let the clouds drift by and by

Jason, January 2005

The main figure in the painting is on the verge of realizing that he must be dreaming. He is surrounded by "clues" that there is something amiss with his "reality". Some of the imagery in the painting is from my own experience with lucid dreaming. Thanks again for your interest!


You're welcome. I find your art inspiring and keep going. Please don't stop as we need people with your creativity and magic. 8-)

Altered States,
I can only speak for my art. The some of my art are done with pastels on paper and then scanned in, and then I manipulate the colour, hue, saturation etc using Photoshop or other similar image manipulation programs like Paint Shop Pro. Sometimes I just use the simple photo editing suite that comes with the computer like Windows Live Photo Gallery, after scanning them in I just play around with the brightness, contrast, and colour until I get the effect I like, or I just click the auto adjust and/or noise reduction it does the trick. 'Madonna of Aireys' is a collage of photos that has been manipulated and retouched using PaintShop Pro. 'Subject 4: The Emperor' is also a collage of photos manipulated, enhanced and embellished using mainly PhotoShop. What I found with these programs is that each do some things better than others and each have tools that the other ones do not have. So to answer your question directly I have 'Photshoped' (a new verb) my art but I have probably used three or four photo/image manipulation programs. I have done other photo art using a very simple 'Paint' style program that I found on an old Windows 98 computer where I was staying at the time, and it was very effective producing a Warhol emulation portrait of my then girlfriend. Sometimes the simplest is just as good or better than the more expensive and 'complex' programs. Having said that there are some amazing pieces of art here in this forum that are simply done by hand no retouching, no manipulation and they are awesome!

"Childhood Dream" either when i was in kindergarten or elementary school

One thing i notice about my dreams in my childhood is: they're colorful. the hue, saturation, exposure; the color was different. no matter if the dream supposed to be scary-themed (this one is), most of them were still much more colorful than the dreams i had after elementary school.

This was a recurring dream (3 days), that's why i still remember it clearly:
Me and my family were in a cemetery (still, colorful with butterflies!), and i heard that 2 local ghosts are causing panic. i panicked too. the cemetery was on a cliff, and i jumped/fell to the lake under. I opened my eyes under water and it was clear, everything glows down there (just like if you open your eyes in a pool), there were some rocks and four orange fishes. still underwater, i saw this girl (only lower half of her body is visible) with her red swimming suit, walking while holding her beach ball. Out the water, i looked up and my mom and sister were calling me. i looked around and the girl's not there. there was no way out so i just dunked again and she's still there, walking around. i did this a couple of times eventhough i kinda got scared, because i could only see her lower half underwater.
i forgot how the dream ends.
