Honolulu, Hawaii—Art exhibit “A SEARCH FOR ULTIMATE TRUTH”, featuring a range of 2-D and 3-D work, from photo essays of sculptures, to paintings, mixed media and wall sculpture, delving into the search for fundamental principles of human existence; an artistic exploration of the underlying harmony among religions and cultures.
Confused and overwhelmed by the plethora of information today about spirituality, spiritual practices, “New Age” ideas, books, tapes, spiritual teachers, prophecies, religions, etc, and seeing the resultant friction among different groups, the artist developed ‘spiritual indigestion” of a sort. In response, Bennett began a personal, serious, inner and outer search for what was common among all of them, an eternal Truth. The search brought the artist from the jungles and shamans of Peru, to the deserts of New Mexico, the Dalai Lama, the “Hugging Saint” of India, the sweat lodges and other ceremonies of the American Indians, and from the Bible to the Bagavah Gita and other esoteric writings. Like Dorothy landing in Oz, the journey took on a spirit of adventure where fact was stranger than fiction, where saints and mystics abound, and the chaos of human existence develops into a seamless whole, complete with a personal gift of the Ruby Red Slippers.
