It was somewhere in 2015 or 2014, or it might even have been 2013 when I was in a kind of meditative state and experienced or saw this Extraterrestrial Biological Entity. The probable reason I cannot remember is that I do not attach much value to this experience, as weirder things happen. The reason I post this now is that I was reminded of my short experience whilst listening to a podcast, about aliens (and much more).
I do know exactly where I stood and what I felt or experienced. It felt like I should not have “seen” it/him/her/other, and it/whatever looked a bit surprised and at the same time irritated at me. The message I got was somewhere in the range of “what are you doing here, you should not be here”.
Well, that was a friendly encounter, one would think. But it did not feel too bad. I didn’t feel bad intent. Almost as when one looks at a complex trick performed by a stage magician from a slightly different angle and find out how the illusion works. Then the stage magician might feel a bit, well, found out, I suppose.
All in all, this experience did not add much to me changing or not changing my world view. Oh, a third reason is because this painting might have been the very first painting I did after my time at the Gerrit Rietveld Akademie. Go figure!
