Embodied Embracing Spirit

This gallery contains a portion of the work from my 2019 Solo show at the Box Factory for the Arts, St. Joseph, Michigan.

My proposal: Using drawing, encaustic monotype, printmaking and large fiber pieces I am exploring the idea of embodiment: creating in concert with mind, body and spirit. I am also exploring the way ’society has written on us’, using full figure outlines and asemic writing. These figures are also a form of energy healing, visually expressing the forces and energies that flow through us and intending integration and healing.

As the work evolved, I was surprised by the sense of deep reservoirs of wisdom and healing available in the body and through the creative process. These divine feminine figures seemed to be vibrating with the energy of ancient and wise stories, reminding us that we need only listen to our own intuitive voice.
