This piece is titled, Stars and Water. An alchemical depiction of nature in transition. This work is about surrendering to change. The star in the centre is still a star, yet everything around it keeps moving, in and out of form.
The colour palette for this piece is particular to the warmth of dignity, stretch and communication. Similar in example to the 曆butterfly effect; in that small adjustments in the flow of the star, filter through surrounding energy, swirling with both light and dark. When mixed and transformed, the star is still a star. Astrology, healing, clairvoyance all teach us, that we are an interaction with the universe, through each other, our planet, our stars and the cosmic body it sits in, the Milky Way to the larger Cosmos. Our essence as humans in balance, naturally vibrates in and out of ideas, places, perceptions. Valuing the interaction of us with the universe as opposed to us ‘ruling’ the universe, creates a moment within our mental landscape to adjust without lack, sacrifice or misconception. Supporting the star to move and hold its essence.
Silver in this palette, was chosen with bronze wax, to show the beauty before joining, the elements igniting a creative spark. An illumination around the star.
I’m sharing this work today, in support of your creativity, day to day, step by step, toward healing solutions and integrity for our communities. Interact with care, grace and awareness for us to have better treatment of ourselves and each other.
After spending an afternoon wandering through the Triennial at GOMA this year, I was moved by the dedication, execution and peaceful nature of the art, particularly when you consider that some of the topics were not comfortable ones. To those who question why Art is important, I say Pshaw!
Below are some of the pic’s I was able to take. Enjoy.
Honestly it was the themes that got me, part of me wants to keep it silent, internalised… and then the questions start. How did we get ourselves here? Why are we treating each other the way we do, so many questions. With the access we have, to these art works, it is so in our face, that it reminds us of the undeniable truth, it is possible to focus for results in dedication, complex critical awareness and love. Each piece was so unusual in explaining the story, that it was palpable, calling out of me a feeling of what had been witnessed. What we are all witnessing. These pieces are enlightened, sophisticated and really beauty in motion. Just let it wash over you. R.
When we discuss intention, we address the everyday. The thread travelling through you and the day. Where we co create.
As you ponder, consider how to engage the most oxygen in this day. Are we relaxed? Self caring? Generous in our Spirit? If the feeling of disconnection leaves these with the volume down, what would you give to remedy this? For me, as many of you, disconnection can lead to a part of self that is small, insecure, wanting. When we are intentional in our living, we are engaging with large, secure & having. It is important to note that definitions play a part, as does action, as does recognition. Living with an awake intention, alleviates boredom, distraction, while adding trust and of course magic.
Magic brings the Spirit alive. Its like walking barefoot through the Earth. A sense of other, a rational composition of self referencing. Active listening, coupling to magic, awareness & intention can create relief from what ails. How could this serve? Perhaps even just to allow sleep to come, easily. Perhaps its to be able to watch the news without dismay knocking on your door. Reducing stress & positioning you to advocate for the healthier option, to be part of the construction, over the mass of deconstruction. Perhaps its to stand in your body & not feel like an impostor. Owning your space. Finding courage to step forward, to support ourselves. What would that day to day look like?
What resonates in the now, is a genuine desire of a large number of us, stepping into caring, supporting healthy change & cleaning up our messes, all in the appreciation of what we do have. From here all things are possible. Look forward to walking with you.
