Elissa Dorfman - American"Beginning of Expansionism"by Elissa Dorfman Description: From the early 1970's I developed my own style that I called Expansionism--everything I sense I expand (that certain something, hunch, instinct, thoughts, feelings, emotions, beliefs). The inner dynamics (the inner world) of the subject expand beyond its outward appearance, and into the environment (divine matrix, the field, nature's mind, mind of god, quantum hologram). Two places science got it wrong.1. The space we believe is empty is really not. It is full of a living material, pulsating essence.2. We may experience inside of our bodies that influence the world beyond through the conduit in this space.
