Mine is an artistic spirit. I love self-expression in all its forms. One of the most powerful things that I have learned in my life is the great importance of holding onto a willingness to be vulnerable and to move through the unknown and be open there.
For this is the place of the sacred, where latent potential can come forth and into form.
I believe we are capable of so much more than we realize and that, by moving in new ways, we begin to understand and ignite new levels of passion and creativity within ourselves and each other.
I wrote recently in an essay entitled, Othello, Naivete and the Predicament of the Innocent, As we recognize that the shadow exists now in the very places our consciousness is meant to inhabit, we see how we are mighty in our potential indeed. I believe this. I believe we have been bound and subjugated by a limited sense of who we are and what we are capable of as human beings. I believe that we are in a time now on earth where many are ready to move beyond these boundaries. My artwork chronicles this movement...my movement....my uncovering of hidden truths and my journey of self-realization.
I have been a prolific artist all my life. I have produced countless works. Many of these pieces illustrate, in time, my own process of integration.
This new series, Black & White....side effects of transformation, consists of 40 paintings and 30 assemblage pieces currently in process. This series marks a new evolution in my work as I break through to the other side of healing and surviving, and exit emerged into a new seat on earth. A seat of love, transcendence and peace.
I am completely inspired in these days as I create this new work and exist in a world between worlds, capturing the side effects of my own transformation. It is here that new worlds are birthed from the remnants of those that have come before. It is through my own deep process of soul level transformation that I have come to know and love this place of birth and death, of black and white, of new beginnings born of the profound experience of existing deeply and unwaveringly in the midst of a world filled with great darkness and great light. A world where I have made my choice, regardless of the price, to align with my own divinity and to create the highest art.
I find this world to be so often intolerant of self-expression and ownership of feelings. I wish for myself to own and feel all emotions....ups and downs and ins and out and the freedom to feel them all so that I can continue to exist in the light eternally. To exist in my totality. Right here. Right now. No matter what I face. That's what I have been devoted to for what seems like forever and it works best for me...that is how I stay centered and whole and transcendent and always able to transmute whatever comes into my energy field. There is every feeling there. Happiness, sorrow, love, hate, joy, despair, horror, disgust, harmony, hope and pure ecstasy. These are all the feelings I have and own and embrace in the midst of this devastating world as it searches for rebalancing and health and a new center.
Yes, it will be nice to live in a place and time where peace and contentment are the emotions that accompany the experiences that life gives....which is the case when I am out of the reach of the darkness here on this earth. I do live in peace and contentment in my innerworld. I think we all do when we are safe and in healthy circumstances. And, I feel like having access to the full spectrum of our feelings in the meantime is key for the chance to live in our divinity. Here. On this earth. So, I just love it all and hold a deep and penetrating space for the total absolute utter emotional experience of life for me here on earth in these times. It is the nature of my spiritual path. And I revere it.
When I immerse myself in my art...it is place I love to be...and I am really happy with how this series is coming into form now. It is the total and absolute outpicturing of everything I just said. I can create art on a whole new level now because I have integrated everything, and I feel it all. This has moved me to a place of pure creative union with the cosmos.
What could be more fun than that?
My hope is that this work offers inspiration to all who see it to do the same. To know their right to exist here fully. To feel it all. Inside of this very world we share. A world transforming.
Stay tune for the next pieces I will be releasing in the coming weeks!
