Kox's Brain/Heart painting on the invitation card is now appearing simultaneously (courtesy of Galerie Toxic) in a special exhibition in Switzerland, which opened September 3, 2011. Following is the artist's explanation of this complex image:
BRAIN/HEART (2010-2011, painted in Bimini, Bahamas):
This painting illustrates how the brain and the heart are tied together in a complex communication system that produces electrical frequencies linked too the spiritual realm.
Lao Tzu, mystic philosopher of ancient China, described a small "gateway to heaven and earth" in the center of the brain behind the eyes.
The pineal gland is at the exact geometrical center of the brain.
French philosopher Rene Descartes suggested that the pineal gland is the "seat of the soul" (1649). Modern scientists have discovered a correlation between pineal gland activation and spiritual meditation. They have also discovered that when subjects enter the meditative state and experience visions and feelings of the presence of God, their brains produce specific and distinct electromagnetic wave patterns from the temporal lobes. When these same frequencies are artificially introduced into the brain using computerized electromagnets, they sometimes stimulate visions and otherworldly experiences including the presence of God. This is not an indication that God exists only in the brain, but rather that the brain is a communication system between the visible and invisible realms.
Dr. J. Andrew Armour, in 1991, revealed that the heart contains an area of neurons, neurotransmitters and cells exactly like those of the brain that qualify it as a "little brain" in the heart. It can act independently of the cranial brain to "learn, remember, feel and sense." The heart communicates with the brain via nerves in the spinal column. Many scriptural references speak of the heart thinking and feeling.
The brain in the heart and brain in the head work in unison to create impulses that can open portals to spiritual realms and act as a communication system to the heavenly. Positive thinking, faith and belief are keys that open the veil.
In Genesis chapter 28, Jacob saw angels ascending and descending through the portal of heaven. This was at a place called Luz ("almond tree") which is also the Hebrew word for "gland." Jacob experienced the portal again when he wrestled with God at Peniel (Gen. 32) which is Hebrew for "the face of God."
Peniel is a reference to the pineal gland, or as Descartes called it "the seat of the soul." One of the English pronunciations of pineal is exactly the same as the Hebrew peniel, "the face of God." Jacob's Luz-Peniel experiences are an analogy to the pineal gland.
The pineal gland secrets a fluid that is much responsible for dreams and visions. It is located in a cavern in the middle of the brain, like the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies, and metaphorically you are the temple of God.

Many of the Picture Perfect Jesus images are included in A SPECK OF ATLANTIS - BIMINI: THE TOP OF GOD'S MOUNTAIN. Several of the images appeared in the Raw vision article mentioned below, along with a detailed description of how they came to be:
"Masquerade" is an article by David Damkoehler, in the Raw Vision 2008 Winter Issue #65 (December), about Norbert H. Kox's artworks depicting Warner Sallman's Head Of Christ. Damkoehler offers insights into understanding the subversive imagery in Kox's paintings: "In 1992 Norbert H. Kox inherited a framed print, a portrait of Christ that had hung in a prominent position in his parents' home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This portrait was to inspire a series of skillfully executed works that exploit visual and textual puns to illustrate Kox's deeply skeptical attitude towards organized religion. ..."
