This piece, I know now, definitely resonates with strength and healing vibrations.
Now, I do have to say, given my recent predicament where a major artery was so scarred that it was blocking flow to most of my coronary arteries, my art, once again, has predicted a significant health issue. Do you see why? The piece is full of artery-like shapes. Some are in focus, some are not, and I’m hugging myself in a protective way. It’s funny,
but for the last few months I had been feeling very vulnerable. I wasn’t sure why, but I just didn’t feel right. I often found myself in this painting’s pose for no apparent reason. Not a usual pose for me.
It is uncanny how this happens, but for the last 30 years, my art has predicted every single battle I’ve had regarding issues with arteries & connective tissue. The pattern has been that it comes out in a painting/drawing, and then it manifests. The truth of the matter is, I don’t even know it at the time. When I finished this painting, it felt like what I set out to do, represent sympathetic vibrations, but now that this latest battle with my arteries has happened, its true meaning has revealed itself.
Some folks have asked me why the blue aura around my figure. It’s something I’ve always seen since I was a little girl. No idea why, I just know that it keeps me strong and I trust it’s there for good reason. Anytime I draw a figure, the blue is there.
As for why the figure is composed of symbols has to do with my current interest which explores inner alchemy and world chaos.
I inject my work with tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my iconography. This process of “organizing chaos” is intrinsic and cathartic, and visibly creates stability in my work.
