GARRY NICHOLS – NEW ART AND MAP DOWSING – I dedicate my talks to Ted Kaufmann my teacher, mentor and Father-in-Law. Ted taught me almost everything I know about dowsing. He left many aspects of this exploration open-ended, so that I could make discoveries for myself. In my lectures, I share stories, pictures of my largescale paintings, murals and studies, as well as historical sites along with dowsing experiences that inspire. In creating my art, the winding pathways often depicted in the structure of the paintings are derived from the energy and movement of the divining pendulum over a topographical map used for searches. In the act of map dowsing, the dowser transcends the limitations of space. The aim is similar in great art: to transcend all limitations placed beforehand on the artist.
