Artwork location: Spain

This painting is one in a series of three paintings exploring Federico Garcia Lorca’s vision of the artist.

The Spanish poet said “The artist, and particularly the poet, is always an anarchist. He must heed only the call that arises within him from three strong voices: the voice of death, with all its foreboding, the voice of love and the voice of art.”

Inspired by Federico Garcia Lorca’s understanding, in this series, I reflect on the three strong voices that guide the authentic individual. Lorca saw the artist as someone whose duty it was to be true to their own experience and intuition. The artist must not succumb to the voices and forces of society, but rather listen to the call within themselves. The voice of death encourages awareness of ourselves as a transitory being, yet unique and individual. The voice of love is the heart's response to others from this awareness, and the voice of art takes this sense of connection further. It is that connection we all have with something bigger than ourselves: something mysterious and always just beyond our comprehension.

Moksananda, La muerte, el amor y el arte 3

Moksananda

United Kingdom  • 1960

Presentation

Moksananda is a British born artist living and working in Valencia, Spain. 

He explores both abstract and figurative art, and the relationship between them, generally using oils and acrylics along with less refined materials such as charcoal powder, metal, and found objects. 

He is largely self-taught, although he studied drawing with the Gaia Art Academy in Valencia and painting with Barry John Raybould at the Virtual Art Academy. He also studied film with the Lights Film School based in New York.

Moksananda’s work is primarily concerned with entering into a fuller relationship with experience, and with the deeper questions that arise when we become more fully aware of our transitory existence. Whether figurative or abstract, or somewhere in between, his art acts as what the ancient Celts called a 'thin place' - a place where the veil that blinds us to deeper realities becomes more attenuated. His paintings hold and communicate a serene strength, and rest in a place of authenticity and questioning.

Denis Taylor, painter and art writer, described Moksananda in Painters Tubes Magazine, as ‘an artist of enormous flexibility [...] an original painter who mixes intelligence, talent and skill with story telling.’ The American abstract artist Ty Nathan Clark, in his introduction to one of Moksananda’s two solo shows in 2023, wrote: ‘The soft flow and almost violent gestures in the artist’s brush strokes create a juxtapose within each painting. The movements almost begging the viewer to walk directly into spiritual questions about the present themes’. 

He has been a practising Buddhist since his early twenties, ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order, and founded the Valencia Buddhist Centre. For more than 30 years he worked and travelled extensively throughout the Hispanic world, teaching and supporting others on the Buddhist path while deepening his own practice and understanding.

Now dedicated full time to art, his life as a meditator feeds into his work. He has been selected for juried group exhibitions and featured in art magazines. His paintings can be found in a growing number of private collections around the world.
