I am participating in an Open Studios this Saturday, October 22nd from 5-8 PM. It will be held at Black Crow Yoga which is at 201 Broadway in Arlington, MA. It is an amazing yoga studio and this is the only Open Studios I participate in during the year. I'm a Crystal Healer and I love showing my artwork in a healing environment such as this.
Most of the pieces I'll be showing are collages from my "Lizism" series. "Lizism" was termed by my friend and fellow artist Becky Small. I am known to make up new uses for words which Becky calls Lizisms so I thought that would work well for this. These are a bit of a play on words, advertising, and the like. Lizisms often mock the culture we live in.
Because of my healing background much of my works have a tendency to be healing as well. When It comes to my mixed media pieces I aim for my works to be visually healing. This is achieved through color, movement, and sometimes includes mantras or sound. I'll also be including a few of these at the event. Following are two from my "Shamanic Healing" and one from my "Chakra Clearing" series.
"Shamanic Higher Chakra Healing" utilizes the arrow a shamanic symbol that can bring medicine to heal the 3rd Eye and Crown Chakras. "EEE" is a tone one can sound for 3rd eye health. The healing sound for the Crown Chakra is silence.
"Shamanic Heart Healing" is a piece where the arrow brings medicine to the heart. A healthy Heart Chakra is an integral part of a happy life. "Om" is the Universal Sound which was made when the universe was created.
"Transformative Self Expression" is from the "Chakra Clearing" series. Through color and movement it clears the Throat, Solar Plexus, and Third Eye Chakras. The piece resembles a chakra breaking open. Being healthy in these three areas allows for expression that is aligned with your higher self. Great for teachers, speakers, writers, artists, and musicians.
I hope you've enjoyed viewing my works as much as I enjoyed making them. :)
