Stephen Linsteadt, born in Ukiah, California in 1956, studied painting with Marjorie Hyde
at Grossmont College and graduated with honors with a B.F.A. in painting from
Long Beach State University. In 1978, Stephen was an Artist-in-Residence for the
City of Long Beach, where he taught painting to inner-city children. He did graduate studies
at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston.

Stephen is an avid reader of Carl Jung and a student of quantum physics and cosmogony.
He is the founder of Scalar Heart Connection and the author of Scalar Heart Connection,
Quantum Healing Codes, and The Heart of the Hero. His forthcoming collection of poetry
is titled The Beauty of Curved Space (Glass Lyre Press 2016).

Stephen's paintings are explorations of how the quantum world of vibrating energy comes
together as the physical realty that we experience in our everyday lives. His current series
of paintings, “Of Sky and Earth,” explore the alchemical theme of "as above, so below" as
found in Nature. The work is an exploration of the Jungian notion that our outer world is a
reflection of our inner state. More about Stephen>>

When I received the invitation to Stephen Linsteadt's art show and lecture entitled "Alice in Quantumland," I knew that it was a show I didn't want to miss. I have been interested in quantum physics for years, but have struggled to understand the concepts. Seeing the documentary, “What the Bleep do we Know” was somewhat helpful, but the idea that art was involved in the equation peeked my curiosity. I was not disappointed with what I experienced. Before the lecture, my friends and I joked with Stephen about his topic and let him know that we wanted "simple.” Stephen promised to deliver and he did, way beyond our expectations.

It is said that artists are prophets of what is to come down the time track of the ages, and, I believe that Stephen is one of those artists. His paintings speak to the subject of quantum physics on many levels - that of the classic story as metaphor, sacred geometry, and a fuller understanding of the question of who we are as human beings. The repeated use of the triangle and other geometric figures, as well as his choice of colors, give much meaning to the concepts of what some people refer to as the "new physics." Whether one is an artist or a lover of art, a physicist, an anthropologist, or a student of the human psyche, this is a show and lecture not to be overlooked.
