ABOUT BRANDON MIKE
Brandon Mike is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Austin, Texas. His work primarily focuses on clean aesthetics: crisp shape and form, unified or precisely harmonious texture, commercially influenced display and presentation power, and the highest degree of polish. With a specialization in concrete sculpture, lighting , furniture, and one of a kind home goods, Brandon seeks to create work with a minimalist aesthetic that captures the essence of the natural world, influencing a deeper connection with the environment and the beings we share it with.
BRANDON MIKE ON OUT OF THE DARKNESS
Throughout time there have been references to the Great Cycles of the Ages and the soul’s evolution through the kingdoms of nature. Out of the Darkness is in reference to the cyclical flow of existence; the course of our planetary system through the cosmos; and sacred geometrical tempos which facilitate the ascending and descending levels of our consciousness and the state of our being.
These great cycles form the foundation of religion across the planet. The Mayans described these epochs through astrology and the Astrological Ages; Hindus call them Yugas; and the Greeks, the Five Ages of Man, most notably recognized as the Golden through the Iron Ages.
It is believed that we are on the precipice of the dawn of a new Age: the Age of Aquarius, the transition from the Iron into the Bronze Age. This is the Age of higher consciousness, where the “Self” gives way to the “All” and the “Ego” acknowledges its connectedness to the divine existence of everything. That all is indeed One.
I believe that this Bronze Age is an inevitability, that the goodness of “Man” will rise out of the darkness of lower consciousness thought and acknowledge the light within. To realize that one truly is great, and has great empathy for all living things and that the truth will always come to light. It is my hope to inspire that light through my work, to share what inspires me, and, through art, facilitate a greater connectedness to the natural world.
