This month's exhibition was pretty fun, a nice little star on top of my tree of existence. We created a little spin-off on the gift giving season and focused on presence instead of presents because creating art asks for focus & intention. That being said, I'm spending my last week of this year and the first week of next year on the mainland with family. Thanks for the amazing times maui, & on for another year of making art!
My artist statement this month went a little something like this:
What does it mean to be an artist? To question whats in front of you, to accept, to see things differently, to embrace the gift of unique perspective, to allow, to let go, to explore, to trust & release doubt, to translate, to remove judgements & opinions. it's one of the most spiritual practices I've ever experienced.
surrendering to the moment.
literally letting go of all of my tensions, hardnesses, holdings throughout my body. letting the physical holdings go helps the illusions completely fall away from me. I'm un-identifying with everything i consider "me"
As if I'm being wiped completely clean of all forms of suffering bit by bit I'm cracking and light is shining through. I'm choosing to see successes in my life, instead of not measuring ups. I can finally say I'm living the life i want to live, always wanted to live. it's here NOW, and i see it for its glory every bit of the way. my entire body trembles in deep sensitive sensations of complete peeling, shedding. fresh raw new skin. vulnerable as ever yet not fearful. complete surrender into divine light. seeing myself as my best self thus my life turns into a reverence. I can't hold back from my joy anymore, and I am dedicated to continuing my practice of living on purpose, the birth of every new moment in embraced flow of abundance. The sheer mystery of every beautiful thing that touches us. Waking up the numb parts. letting go. accepting. focus.
