About the Artwork:
“Protos means first. Protos is the gate keeper and the key holder… if we choose to see the wisdom held by Protos we must first ask permission for help out of true vulnerability and desire to change. When permission is granted the floating orb reveals itself through dreams as a light to guide you through the dark gate of its open wings.
This is a walk through introspection. A Visionary journey of pains held by you that do not serve you anymore and need to be rid of, to heal them however possible. Once presented with these challenges from the spiritual world…you have been given the gift of foresight, the answers to your strifes on this material plain. A glimpse past the gates for the keys to your freedom. Answer these challenges honestly and see who you really are. These are the kind of gifts and visions that can’t be undone, you will never be the same and you won’t be able to forget them. Life will change whether you take action or not. If action is taken that doesn’t mean you have control, that means you’ll be able to see it coming with the ability to make decisions with intent first.” – Jason Stewart
About the Artist:
My name is Jason Stewart I’ve been drawing as long as I can remember. I’m pretty sure I used this as an escape tool when I was younger. I spent most of my time outdoors exploring the hills, rivers and mountains. I was always inspired by the animals I found, the unique colors and textures in nature animated or not. That coupled with the child’s imagination I’m sure is what you’re looking at today when browsing my art. This, until I was 30 always appeared as a hobby/not a real job from the words of both peers and family. There was encouragement for sure but as we all know discouragement is a heavy weight to carry…it’s more confusing and comes with more questions then encouragement does…especially when we’re too young to understand it is only another’s opinion. Their personal failings and fear projected. So be kind, careful and patient with the little ones…there might be a hidden genius.
I’m 43 now and for the last 13 years I’ve at least drawn, invented, sculpted, filmed, built and created something every day since then. I’ve watched my life, attitude and confidence change. I’ve witnessed myself grow learn and be able to teach. I understand myself, the people and objects around me better than I ever have…I credit Art and Creativity for that. Drawing to me is peaceful as it was once about aggression. It’s my meditation, a resting place. It is the thing I feel called to do, my purpose. I feel very deeply…Drawing is how I honor my souls spirit while I’m here. No matter where it takes me I’ll know that I lived my passion and I explored it until the day that I died.
