"Composition VI" - Wassily Kandinsky
Ambiposiosis (am-BEE-pos-Si-osis)

The creative spirit manifests itself from original autonomy. This inclination to make anything with one's own respective and immediate faculties is a gift from God. From the vast but finite unknown within I hope to express the infinity of the Father of Creation. From this root stems the method of Ambiposiosis and all its branches.

"The true work of art is born from the 'artist': a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it aquires an autonomous life, becomes a personaltiy, an independent subject, animated with spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being." - Wassily Kandinsky

Ambiposiosis (am-BEE-pos-Si-osis) is a portmanteau word combining the phrase 'ambiguity is possibility' into a single expression of an artistic method. Through any means of self exploration one's end is to create a work of art. The acheivement of Ambiposiosis involves the surrender of the human spirit to God. This submission results in the victorious manifestation of Truth and Love.
Wassily Kandinsky's (1866-1944) philosophy and paintings emit spiritual exploration. Though his work waxed to be more and more abstract in use of color and form, the Impressionistic folk art is ever present. This abstraction of the basic and the intuitive speaks to Ambiposiosis in that an intrinsic incling is transformed and elevated beyond itself to acheive a higher something.
