The Evolution of two paintings!
For me, to live fully means to create. I paint, write and constantly develop new content for the guided imagery courses I teach. I love being on the edge of the next step of inner evolution and my art reveals my inner worlds.
The Cosmic Resurgence series emerged out of deep introspection, solitude and reflection during the time of a global pandemic. Without the goal-oriented pushing forward in our busy world, I allowed for flow time, journeyed within and rediscovered threads of imagination, exciting stories that were not concluded, and unfinished works of art.
A routine of daily meditations, journaling and painting reconnected parts of myself, like the puzzle pieces of my life and merged them into one whole and evolved state of being, which is made visible in this new series.
Oil is my preferred medium as it takes months, sometimes up to a year, to create one painting. Taking time and slowing down is an important contrast to our fast-paced world. I love the deliberate contemplation of each next step of evolution, which then bursts out onto the canvas with spontaneity, lightness and playfulness.
The blue paintings of the Cosmic Resurgence series build on a technique that I developed at the beginning of my art career while living in the Mediterranean. The effects of the pigments on wet oil emphasize intuitive flow and spontaneity.
I chose blue as the predominant color in my 2020 series for it’s calming effect. In many cultures blue is the bringer of peace and symbolizes protection and truth.
