The following ideas about Fusionart have come from the Fusionartists themselves. They have each described in their own words what they believe what Fusionart is and how their own artwork reflects these ideas.
"Fusionartists embark on a new journey with each canvas, taking a leap of faith towards an unknown destination. They are transported from within and flow with an essence that is boundless. Their images are lit from within; they burst with color and motion. They invite introspection with each viewing. You can often enjoy them 90 to 180 degrees and discover new nuances with every turn. Their attraction leaves a generous amount to your imagination and interpretation. This gives the viewer an opportunity resonate with and find what he/she needs to see for himself/herself in that image."
~ Diane Atkins
"We are all in the Light doing God's work. I see a nurturing group that shows the world there is another way than division and conflict. It reminded me of one of my favorite quotations from God's Way of Life: "The art of living is in the giving/ To do your part give from the heart." That is how I feel, and that is what I felt when I saw your beautiful painting. That is what Fusionart is all about for me, and why I am proud to call myself a Fusionartist."
~ Rickey Hoefnagel-Buntin
"There is a quality of interconnectedness of color and form that dances with magical and flowing union. It serves as a concurrent window to, and mirror of the individual and collective soul. It is an invitation to be one with. The swirls invite environment and people in studies inclusivity. It centers on wholeness and oneness. The forms lead by a command of presence devoid of demand. Although force/power-filled, it is
not coercive, but rather flows organically, and naturally in a rhythm of divine breath. The human forms gather energy along the journey. Centered is the cosmic mirror, the calm of wisdom's silent stillness, the divine jewel of warmth and wonder."
~ Yasmin Sayyed
"To me Fusionart is about revealing all aspects of God's light. And it is just as multi-faceted as there are people in this world. Each piece is another perspective of the same thing; just another way to show people that we are all seekers on the same journey. When I shared "The Traveler's Perception" (the green piece with the eyes) with friends I have seen them touched on a very deep level. Sometimes they cannot put words to their experience, but they all agree that something very deep inside has been awakened by looking at the art.
It's like that quote from Paul Klee, "Art is not what we see. It makes it visible." Fusionart reveals the divinity within to the viewer. It's like the concept of projection in psychology -- we see in others what we cannot own in ourself. But when people look at a Fusionart painting, they see a part of themselves that they have long forgotten or long buried. And that recognition is so instantaneous and so surprising, it overwhelms them and they are filled to the brim with divine loving energy. The painting triggers the flow of energy which has been frozen within up until that moment.
Rassouli has talked many times about a painter freezing a moment in time as soon as he commits the paint to canvas. But the difference with Fusionart is that the paintings are not frozen because they generate energy in the viewer, and that energy effects everything around them. When looking at a Fusionart piece, there is a symbiosis between the painting and the viewer that creates this energy that is beyond the 'typical' experience of life. In this way the painting is fluid and changing with each individual that gazes upon it."

"A community of the world connecting through art. The soul connection communicates through art. We are all one through what we see that touches our soul."
