The Genetic Bill of Rights Painting Series Signature Piece by 

“Consequences”, the signature piece from the Genetic Bill of Rights Painting Series by Mariam Muradian & C.C. Arshagra. The artist was rapidly losing her sight throughout the painting of the entire series; this one signature piece was painted by Mariam Muradian when she was blind (a side effect suffered from a medication given to assist her heart). The Genetic Bill of Rights was drafted in 2000 by The Council for Responsible Genetics and GeneWatch, yet most people do not even know that it exists. These rights exist for everyone; to inform people that they have the right to govern their own genes, bodies, cultures, and biodiversity.The entire card set is worth owning and sharing. The knowledge this series embodies is priceless.

    thats so cool, i really love the colors in this

  • Thank you, Tommy.
    The colors actually just came out the way they came out, not by the “usual” aesthetic decision-making process….and probably even beyond intuitive too; I just continued painting with color even though I could no longer see. I love the colors too, now that I can by miracle see them again!
    Gratitude in all things.
    Blessings to you.

    i love the colours, interesting composition, great work!

  • Natalie,
    Each are unique in their own right….together they contain powerful, true information for the world.
    I humbly thank you for taking the time to look and read!
    The BEST ART comes through us, and isn’t about us at all….I feel
    PRIVILEGED to have been the Artist to paint these. The brain child and credit goes to CC Arshagra

    Stunning. You have such an eye for composition, colour and forms.

  • Thank you, Paul.
    Funny, that “eye” is internal, intuitive, not actually seeing using the eyes.
    I was blind when I painted this piece. I learned SO much from that time!
    The unseen is what is so powerful….what we “see” with our eyes is distraction.
    Your words went deep with me, Paul. I thank you from my heart.

    I had to check you out after reading your comment to “The Bone Collector” Just as I thought A wise woman among us. I dont know how your health is at this time but know you will be fine! Wise Woman must often go through the crap to be LIGHT!!!

  • Wow! What a reply! It is I that am truly honored, ellamental!
    From your profile I can see that it is you that indeed knows about LIGHT….and from your comment above: through what means it is acquired! Sensing a strong spirit and quality of life in YOU! Seems so appropriate that we would meet beneath this piece of ART and in discussing “The Bone Collector”, curious but not surprizing. So delighted in meeting you! Will be in touch. Thank you for your interest in my ART.
