Inner realities are discovered through introspection.  The seeds of new concepts can take root and grow there.  As an artist, I attempt to cultivate the subconscious realm and reveal them for the public.  Ultimately, I think art should strive to enlighten- to bring one closer to a truth,  to the heart of one’s nature.  It can and should reach beyond the mass appeal of popular culture’s trends while defying manufactured hype and constant self-indulgence.  I believe art can truly expand consciousness if it’s intention is to reflect ideas greater than oneself. The images of mandalas and the supernatural are ancient ideas that have interested cultures for ages.  They are the direct influence of the richness and beauty that is our individual lives, our earth, and the stars beyond.  I can think of no better well that an artist can draw continuously flowing inspiration from than our own collective existence and our potential as conscious beings.  I honor the way of nature in my art, to express life while living; an infinite surrender to the methods of the Great Mystery.

Lael Har's inspiration from nature and the study of healing arts transforms into vibrant texture and color. The impasto application of acrylic paint creates movement and a sculptural effect in her work. She often paints wet on wet with big brushes, pallet knives, and spatulas allowing the viewer to experience the energy of every stroke applied. 

Lael's process of painting is intuitive and guided by the moment to moment aliveness experienced in the dance of creating. She delights in the unfolding of the creative process that brings embodiment and present awareness into being. In Lael's paintings inner and outer landscapes transform into brilliant contemporary canvases.
