Artists


Drake Arnold
Founder & Creative Director of Fractal Spirit
  
Drawing inspiration from the earth and our natural environment, my work has been influenced by all aspects of this multifaceted life. From the academic disciplines of mathematics, science, and philosophy to the fantastical whimsy of the imagination, my work has been informed by my life’s journey and my heart's intuition.
I find myself using art as a means of intimately reconnecting with my most transcendental experiences and relating them to others. Recently I have been using art as a means of expressing deeply personal experiences that I cannot convey in words alone. I have found incredible joy in trying to take the purely experiential or conceptual and re-writing it into a new visual vernacular. Mine is just one perspective out of the vast ocean of humanity's infinite potential.

Jared Clone
I am an artist working with mostly acrylic painting and I am the creator of Jared Clone Art. My mission as an artist is to be able to tell a story with my artwork and to take the viewer on a magical journey through visionary dimensions, and my imagination. I hope to inspire people to get in touch with whatever unique thing inspires them to be creative. I  I am committed to providing viewers with the best possible experience through artistic expression.

Matthew Fredricey (A Third Fire)
I am an artist from Colorado who is dedicated to the transformation of consciousness through the healing power of sacred art. The message of my art is simple: We are all connected. Everything is alive. Humanity is Divine. 
When the fire of the mystic's passion for the Divine meets the fire of the activist's passion for justice, a third fire is born. This is the fire of Sacred Activism.  My mission as an artist has shifted through out the years. I have always been an ambitious artist, and as of late, my work is becoming infused with a deeper meaning. I am devoted to using my time, wisdom, and experience to improve the world we live in. This burning desire to infuse action with meaning and beauty is the third fire of Sacred Activism. Artist's have a tremendous responsibility to portray the world in which we live or to offer an alternate perspective. Mystic's have a tremendous responsibility to transform their own consciousness and then to use that new wisdom and perspective to better the world. "Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he or she sends forth a tiny ripple of hope. And crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." - Robert Kennedy
My hope is that we can collectively sweep down the walls of oppression and resistance by marrying the ideals born of our highest spiritual experiences with the reality that we, as humanity, are facing a fork in the road of our planetary destiny. It is crucial, now, that this third fire ignite our hearts and minds into urgent, yet optimistic, action.  
Creating art is what I love most and will continue to do until the sun grows cold (and beyond). For me, painting is a form of prayer. The creation of art for me is a spiritual experience. I find myself painting mystical and psychedelic visions; art of a sacred or spiritual nature, imbued with symbols, realism, and dream worlds. As an artist, I endeavor to reveal the often overlooked beauty creation, as well as to share my hopeful vision of an evolving humanity. There is magic in and around us all and the beautiful world we inhabit, and I attempt to help reveal a glimpse of the spirit that resides in all things. I believe that visual art, as well as music, literature, or any other means of self expression, can and does act as a medium of transforming an inner truth from the invisible to the visible realm. Creating art is my link to the universal creative force which has gifted us with a similar creative impulse. 
I have shared my paintings and live painted at numerous festivals, art exhibits, concerts, galleries and events throughout the years.
