On Sunday, September 25, 2011 painter and hypnotherapist Roni Golan will open an exhibit in the KOH Library and Cultural Center as a part of the ongoing KOH Jewish Artist Series. The reception and program are scheduled to begin at 4:00 PM. Roni will be speaking on art, creativity and hypnosis and will be available to answer questions about his extraordinary art. His work is well known for its originality and creativity, bringing a fresh perspective into the contemporary art scene. Roni describes his paintings as both intentional and spontaneous; taking the viewer’s eye into shapes, patterns and colors that produce visual pleasure at first glance. Then, in the process of translating the elements in his art into the real world, one can discover the joy of ambiguity. The use of lines in his art is intended to serve as guides, leading the viewer’s unconsciousness towards a new experience and to convey the beauty awaiting us when our vision moves past both real and imagined demarcations. In his program Roni will explore the self-invented obstacles in our lives that prevent us from becoming more creative and how hypnosis and laughter can help us to move beyond those obstacles.
