Art: Anima Mundi by Artist Kelly Sheridan

Created with Photoshop 7, Photoshop Elements 2.0, and Corel Painter 8.

My visions of the future are concerned with knowledge, philosophy and spirituality. The imagery in this work reflects my need for solitude and the desires for that which is hidden from man.

The concept for this work was originallysketched on paper, then the photgraphic elements composited (the figure of the girl and the image behind her, which is an antique book cover).

The background, foreground, clothing, halo, and lighting and shadow effects are done by hand, without the use of commercial filtering. (For PC)Right click on layers>Blending options negates the need for most filters, and makes the work more it is calibrated by one's own touch and not that of yet another program or tool...I have to come through in the art, otherwise it feels souless.

Anima Mundi ~ A cosmological concept of a world soul or governing force in the universe that allows divine thought to become manifested in laws affecting matter.

According to the mystic Marcilio Ficino, the world soul is omnipresent, but cooperating star daemons assist in uniting spirit and matter. Ficino was influenced by Plotinus and other Neoplatonists who believed the world soul established processes in the heavens that defined and influenced what occured on earth.

Philosophically, the world soul was midway between spirit and matter, a dimension of energy and vitality for the world below. ~Nevill Drury, The Dictionary of the Esoteric
