I'm born in Germany in the fifties.

I've worked asleep in the Matrix for 25 years.

In the driest whitest stretch of pain's infinite desert, I lost my sanity and found this rose. – Rumi

The Beloved

I try to express my heart and my soul.
I try to express his heart and his soul.
For it trys to live me on the doorsill,
I try to live aware in this "space between".

I build my house of compassion
where the two worlds touch and love each other.

Some think this is mystic.

Now it's my pleasure to help people that their stressful beliefs - about life, death, other people, or themselves - shift.

A couple of days ago I was asked what I consider the most important things in my life and I said: Unconditional love and awareness.

I love and adore C. G. Jung, Richard Wagner, Hermann Hesse, Meister Eckhart, Laotse, Albert Hofmann, Dalai Lama, Chögyam Trungpa, Rumi... and yet myself.
Just like a beloved friend said...

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

Leaves of Grass - Walt Whitman


I love Flickr
I love digital art

I love selecting and recomposing elements from nature to evoke a particular mood. And I love to work with symbols and archetypes to think about.

When a picture evokes feelings and thinking it's well balanced.

    "Within this stream is wisdom of the ages expressed so well by one man in the present reality as we may think it. A unique insight into the soul of an artist questioning his experience of his inner and outer worlds.His images/visions speak their own words, but to add to the conversation, Hartwig adds literature of others or his own words of poetry and thinking. A tremendously stimulating stream on so many levels, and another grand example of what I admire most in the unique individuals I'm meeting here in this flickr world."

    "An artist explains the world to themselves, and worries not about anyone else's interpretation.
    This man is clearly smoking the good stuff, which comes for free, from within..
    The dancer, IS the dance, and this man is dancing to the beat of his own heart.
    Thank you."

    "A stream of mystical and symbolic art.
    HKD weaves a net of psychology and spirituality,
    expresses light and shadow and the transcendence of duality.
    There is a lot to see, feel and analyse in his work.
    I am very much enjoying his art :)
    keep on going with the creative flow !!"
