Organic mind bagi mantra

Organic mind  bagi Mantra

Terminologi “organik” telah masuk ke dalam otak kita sebagai sesuatu yang mangajak kita untuk kembali ke alam. Banyak negara dan budaya telah lama menganut gaya hidup organik dengan makanan organik, pertanian organik, kosmetik organik dan sebagainya. Pemikiran organik mempunyai hubungan erat dengan kesadaran lingkungan dan kesehatan.

Tetapi ada aspek-aspek lain dari berpikir organik yang harus kita pegang dan pahami. Mantra, seorang seniman kontemporer, mengekspresikan dalam koleksinya ini dua bentuk kecerdasan penting yang  ditemukan di dalam kemanusiaan: Kecerdasan Alami dan Kecerdasan Bentukan. Kecerdasan Alami adalah apa yang kita lakukan dengan naluri kita, apa yang alam minta kita lakukan dan ketrampilan-ketrampilan yang alami berikan kepada kita. Mantra memberikan contoh Jimmy Hendrix sebagai sebuah elemen naluri alamiah yang luar biasa karena Hendrix tidak pernah belajar musik tetapi ketrampilan alamiahnya mampu menciptakan suara-suara gitar yang unik. Dengan kata lain, Hendrix mempunyai “pikiran organik”. Masalah budaya yang terjadi saat ini adalah bahwa kita terlalu tenggelam dalam kecerdasan bentukan yang disebarkan oleh konsumerisme dan media seperti kecanduan TV dan keharusan “mengikuti sindrom Jonses” secara materialistik. Hasil akhirnya menjadikan kemanusiaan kehilangan konsep pikiran organiknya.

Namun demikian beberapa cara kecerdasan bentukan kembali ke kecerdasan alami seperti yoga yang diciptakan oleh kemanusiaan di India sekitar 5000 tahun yang lalu sebagai bentuk olah raga dan jiwa yang membawa pikiran dan tubuh bersama di dalam kesatuan spiritual.  Dengan demikian kita bisa menyatakan bahwa beberapa kecerdasan unik ada pada keduanya.

Jimi Hendrix on the Sixth Canvas

“When I was younger, I learnt those ways. I paid attention and tried to find all those beautiful ways, like Castle Made of Sand, One Rainy Wish and all Hendrix’s cool works, which unfortunately are not as famous as his echo technique, playing-with-teeth technique, etc.”

~ Steve Vai via TEMPO, May 3 – 9 2010.

“Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens […] Excuse me while I kiss the sky […] I’m the one that has to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.”

—Jimi Hendrix, http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/ (accessed 15 October 2010)

The sixth of his eighteen canvases displayed at Sangkring Art Space, Yogyakarta in the exhibition entitled “Organic Mind” shows the portrait of legendary Jimmy Hendrix, depicting him as – adopting the title of an Indonesian film starred by Rhoma Irama – “Satria Bergitar” “the Guitar Knight”, who was most stunning and influential in the world history of rock music and guitar playing techniques as stated in Steve Vai’s testimony.

Supposed we are fans of Jimi Hendrix, have such testimony convinced us to related ourselves with the leading figure of The Jimi Hendrix Experience?

[…]

Let us remember Jimi Hendrix, who was born with name Johnny Allen Hendrix, especially the day when he was desperately waiting for something but it ended in endless silence that cannot be explained. Read More

Reading Mantra Organic

*Sugi Lanus

‘Organic’ thinking is thinking based on the perception of wholeness of people, relationships, and of the earth itself. It is thinking that seeks to join together and to unify, rather than to break things down into discrete parts. ‘Organic’ thinking looks at life as a series of smaller wholes within larger wholes. It forms the foundation for a life in which nothing is separate. – Julie Redstone, ORGANIC MIND AND BINARY MIND

Mantra is the product of a long line of traditional Balinese who diligently followed the path of art as a life choice. His father was a well known painter named Bapak Pengsong, a famous painter in Bali and Lombok. >From his father’s line, he has a long genealogy that can be traced to the 16th century when the people of the Gelgel and Amlapura Kingdoms, along with troops of soldiers and artists, migrated to West Lombok. >From the Balinese community in Lombok, Mantra took in the nuances of Balinese aesthetics in what tends to be an exclusive group of the Balok (Bali-Lombok) people to carry on his religious and traditional lines.
