International Women’s 2020

These are a few of the words I associate with women.  As the women I see & speak with, it’s obvious to me are amazing. It really does not seem to matter how large the stage they stand on, challenges & lessons come, polishing us to shine.

Leading.  Not managing, not following, not unconscious truly no matter what is thrown.  Each morning we wake & find our why to follow the day.  We gather ourselves, when able we gather others, understanding that life has value & is not best under control, strangled until extinguished.   In light of the great spirits of sisters who came before me, I say keep stepping Ladies, I applaud you.

Alchemy, we are magical.

Victorious, we create victory & survive.

Inherent, we are permanent, essential & characteristic in life & our cultures.

Aware, of our feminine essence, its protection & nourishment.  We are connected.

Traveller Tidda’s, I want to pay respect to my indigenous sisters across our globe.  I recognise the divine in you.

Rich, in essence & in dollar dollar bills.

Creative energy personified.  We are resourceful.

Evolutionary, we survive & thrive.

Successfull.  ‘Nough said.

To the Ladies in my life day to day, you all help me be a better woman.  Thank you.

A post note, the artwork above is by Paul McGregor, & great artist who gave me this piece after I modeled for him.  We can all be feminists. R xx.

Keeping Calm

 

Hello Lovers of Life,

Finally a cooler afternoon 🌴🌴🌴one cup of coffee down & thinking on our vibe today.  Overall this week has an opportunity for levelling our perceptions, in terms of health, hygiene, hygiene, hygiene as well, if your interested in trying some old school remedies I recommend the following.

1. Cut onions placed in key spaces in the home & business.  For example, bathrooms, foyers, kitchens, in rooms where people are ill & convalescing.  The onion removes bacteria, you will see when it is ‘fulll’, bin & replace on a clean plate.

2. Tea tree oil, 1 cap of oil in a 500ml spray bottle, spray into the room as an atomiser.  Do not spray the face.

3.  Smudge with sage, incense if that’s what is available, resin on charcoal discs, white sage is a great treat all.  Place in a safe/non flammable space in your home or business, can be done after hours here, do not leave unattended.

4.  Keep it tidy, as in clean.  Throw out the rubbish, wipe & or wash bins changing bags, vacuum often in the nooks in your spaces, wash filters, wipe sills, switches, handles & counter tops with the tea tree spray, wipe with paper towel if illness is in the space, then throw away towel.  Eucalyptus oil can also be added to the spray, half a lid tea tree with half a lid eucalyptus in a 500 ml spray bottle.  This spray works well on security screens, very important for air quality, also for counters, reception desks & student desks.

5.  Exercise, a wander in your neighbourhood, dance in the living room, spend time in your backyard.  Yoga is good to open & relax body, mind & spirit, supporting strong immunity.

These steps support a quality in our spacial engagement, in holding our emotional intelligence, our spaces reflect & enhance our tactile nature, enabling positively keeping calm.  Staying in tune with our bearing as we navigate collectively, where we all are, what we are all dealing with & our accountability, as per my mention in the annual forecast for 2020, sabotage & accountability are part of our energies throughout the year.

As above; keep calm & collect your thoughts, gain control of your inner images; appease & be in the moment, bring some sensory perception back to your outer limbs; lungs open & moving with deep breaths in & out, 3 cycles; mingle & continue your work, keep on your path & continue with micro steps if this is all you are able, talk to your inner circle.  All steps count, have value, build immunity & integrity, supporting you in fulfilling your vitality, presence & resolutions.

Sending you safe passage.

Olafur Eliasson & Well, Everything.

 

Did you see the Netflix special, Abstract?  I’ve been absorbed, its an inside look at art professions and how this dances with our culture as a society.  In season 2, episode 1, Olafur Eliasson’s art is highlighted, for good reason.  It’s clever, questioning, proposing & amazingly beautiful.  My favourite are the waterfalls.  Structure, grace & wild.

Firstly the exhibition, Water is on in Brisbane at QAGOMA in the South Bank Precinct.

 

 

 

His discussion begins with examples of work with Olafur quickly showing his innate understanding of art and its place in our culture.  Watching his on the spot working through the discussion is marvellous.  He is very generous, humble and very inquisitive.

Looking at Ice Watch, large glacial ice pieces from Greenland, hand captured and placed at The Tate, for us to have a spacial, tactile and immediate perspective based response, is piercing in its brilliance and clarity of thought through to execution.  Eloquent.

 

 

With The Weather Project, 2003, the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern gallery.  A micro climate created sepia toned silhouettes causing an array of responses from the audience interactions, from yoga, lying down flat, talking with strangers in the mist and all participants in the miracle of art, becoming part of it.  Olafur is considerate in his approach to making us part of the pieces, bringing them and us to life, creating a conversation around the pieces as well as part of completing the work, by engaging through tactile aspects from splashing water, to ice melting under our touch.

 

 

I found the image below so charming, it is Olafur’s first installation if you will.  He flooded the space on purpose.  I adore that this image is black and white.  No extraneous noise, play and creativity surprising an opportunity to interact with our life force, water.

 

 

This is the Glacier Melt Series.  Photographic series around melting ice with drastic differences in nature.  All the work centres around our perceptions, that these are individual & our interaction with our spaces and nature.

 

 

This is a photo capturing workings in progress in the studio.

 

 

Overall, I was totally captivated throughout the discussion, I love that he plays with shapes and light, has an affinity with nature and our position as caretakers.  Leading into how as artists we are a valuable part of all cultures and it is part of our due diligence to keep creating, thoughtfully.

Check out the exhibition, in Brisbane till April 2020.
