The aim is to encourage more communication, respect, and acceptance by bringing all cultures together.
Allowing life and the recognition of everyday symbols and events to be as they are. Nothing is perfect and everything has the ability to change. To further the evolution and transformation of traditional art into innovative and modern forms by communicating with artists all over the world without forgetting the forests of the Swiss Alps.
Primal geometry – ten symbols found in nature - has been a spiritual awakening and an unending source of inspiration for the Swiss artist Barbara Streiff. Empowered by the symbolic energy in primal geometry, her work reflects all cultures, all religions, and all time. Barbara Streiff's primal geometry art not only reflects the profound meld of nature and human cultures worldwide, but each piece also symbolizes her own personal passion.
The Labyrinth of Elements – to walk into the interior, turn round and return on the path to the exterior. Allowing life and the recognition of everyday symbols and events to be as they are. Nothing is perfect and everything has the ability to change. An installation to be experienced a art action in communicative art exchange with artists and visitors on place.
Organizing international art exchanges comes out my AION artwork. The philosophy behind AION is the primal geometry taken from symbols in nature: the first signs found in all ancient cultures throughout the world. Primal geometry connects ALL cultures over ALL time.
Primal geometry - ten symbols found in nature - has been a spiritual awakening and an unending source of inspiration for the artist. Empowered by the symbolic energy in primal geometry, Barbara Streiff's work reflects all cultures, all religions, and all time.
To further the evolution and transformation of traditional art into innovative and modern forms by communicating with artists all over the world without forgetting the forests of the Swiss Alps. In homage to nature and the everyday experiences which lead us on the path of insight and realisation.
The Labyrinth of Elements consists of 48 pictures painted while meditating on the elements water, air, earth and fire. A square copper bowl, on which the archaic symbols of nature have been burned, is located in the centre of the labyrinth.
In observing nature and her workings, I have found ten symbols which appear in all cultures and religions and span all ages.
Each of these symbols can be interpreted positively or negatively, and often a time of plenty is preceded by massive destruction. A volcanic eruption can destroy many living creatures. However volcanic soil is the most fertile, out of which new life will grow.
You are invited to take part in a project since 1998 on the road. Natural Art Installations around the world will represent the communication that occurs between nature, local places and you, the visitors. In canyons and gorges, on islands like Cyprus, near the Amazon River in South America, on the West Coast of the USA, up in the Swiss Alps, in the Himalayas, across the African desert, on the steppes of Russia - wherever artists live or want to go in nature to build art with materials from the Earth - all artists and children from 7 to 77+ are invited to celebrate nature through their own spontaneous creativity.
Installation " primea geometrie " around Sinti Monastery Cyprus Island This action is inspired by Aion primal geometry - 10 symbols found in nature - which joins all cultures and religions throughout history and time. We will build symbols from primal geometry using natural elements and materials: stones, earth, water and fire. The symbols include the following: point, circle, parallelogram, cross, spiral, line, triangle, square, lightening bolt, and three points or stars for the cosmos. For example, we might build a cross with wood, a spiral with stones, a circle with fire, or a line with water. We work only with local materials found in nature and with the natural energy of the place. The concept behind the artwork is to save and celebrate nature through our creative acts. Barbara Streiff is the artist and curator behind this project. She has created exhibitions and installations with Aion pictures and sculptures in many parts of the world already. She invites you to be part of this continuing communicative art action by building installations with the primal symbols wherever you are in the world. The installations should take place in nature, and photos of the artwork created around the world will be presented on the Website www.alpswissart.ch.
