CHRONICLE OF AWARENESS INTELLIGENCE. Paintings & Poems by Mathias Sager
About the book
This book is about what I find most important and promising for positive change and an all-inclusive future for all. As a psychologist and artist, psychology, and art, for me, belong together. I have discovered and coined the concept of Awareness Intelligence, and my paintings and poems inspire and educate about its benefits of fitness, kindness, and wisdom. This collection provides information about me as an international artist. I present some of my original artworks and related texts, introducing thinking toward a healthier, more compassionate world of higher awareness.
The book discusses the topics of the superiority of nature over technology, the ability to be alone to connect with all humanity, and unconditional love after overcoming fear. The selected works from 2022/21 come chronologically, just like artistic intuition has logically created them. The works often involve the distinguishing feature of triangular patterns, representing the threefold nature of Awareness Intelligence from a social ((1) me, (2) we, and (3) everyone) and temporal ((1) past, (2) present, (3) and future) perspective. A unique psycho-philosophical/spiritual experience.2022-05-13-Chronicle-of-Awareness-Intelligence_ALL-DE-EN_v01
Mathias Sager was born in Zurich in 1975 and grew up in Switzerland. For many years he lived in Tokyo and also in Pune/India. Mathias is passionate about developing human potential, and his goal is to inspire with interdisciplinary, innovative, and cross-cultural approaches to personal and professional development for individual well-being and the common good. “Art helps me to clarify and imagine a meaningfully courageous world of renewal, to find the true self, unconditional love, and the connection with nature, the universe, and all of humanity.”
For Mathias, psychology and art belong together, so his paintings appear with written pieces of psycho-philosophical/-spiritual research and wisdom.
As the inventor of the psychological concept of ‘Awareness Intelligence,’ which is the ability to expand and systematically use one’s thinking in the full scope of time and social relationships in a triadic constellation (instead of dualistic thinking), Mathias regularly takes up the number 3 in his works. His art intends to remain raw, simple, and naively colorful, yet intelligently connecting the dots according to the holistic thinking behind it. The viewer of his work is invited to give a second look (and thought) to get that systematic.
Art, for Mathias, is the most serious. In a world of superficial appearances, it reflects the true self’s soul (and maybe the true nature of the universe as experienceable by humans). The outer world can be photographed; the inner world has to be painted.
