The Paintings of
Bô Yin Râ

Untitled Document

One must immerse ones inmost self into the forms, to feel them solely from within; for only that can bring about the transformation of the hieroglyphs, here given visual form, into dynamic inner energy, which then will stir the soul  — from the Preface to World of Spirit.

A noted artist of his time, Bô Yin Râ created a body of paintings reflecting metaphysical realities. These "spiritual perspectives" are intended to help the viewer apprehend, by means of color, line, and form, the archetypal structures of eternal life, whose patterns also underlie and shape all elements of this material world. Viewers who are able to “see with feeling eyes “ may feel within themselves a resonance with the harmonies and rhythms of the realm of radiant, life-giving Spirit.

Selections from Bô Yin Râ’s legacy of 200 paintings are on display in the galleries below.

The series Cosmic Worlds is reproduced in its entirety in the book Worlds of Spirit.

Selections from Das Reich Der Kunst (The Realm of Art), a collection of Bô Yin Râ's essays on the spiritual significance of art, can be read here.
