Subconscious Projections of Harmony

The images below represent paintings that are currently on display at the Art District Gallery in St. Jacobs (1369 King. St., N.)  www.ArtDistrictGallery.org  At the recent opening reception at ADG, I had the wonderful opportunity to share my interpretations of the meanings inherent in the paintings, which I had never put into words previously.  Now that I have, I figured that it’s time to share!


Abstract paintings are my favourite!  Often, in my abstract work, the forms evolve into what I call “shape characters”.  In my mind, these forms represent subconscious thoughts.  My mission in art is to create paintings that add positivity to any environment, thus, these shape characters all have the common goal of co-existing in harmony.

 

Renaissansical Generation Jam
Renaissansical Generation Jam

In Renaissansical Generation Jam, the forms are congregating in order to share ideas to solve a problem.  All are attentive, giving full mindfulness as each idea is presented and explored.  Some of the ideas are red, indicating that the ideas have matured.  One idea is green, and still is being developed and nurtured.  Only one idea is considered by the group at a time.

 

 

The Learning Curves
The Learning Curves

In The Learning Curves, there are two classes of forms, the larger verticals, and the smaller squiggly reds.  All forms are working in harmony to reach a common destination, and the relationship between the verticals and the reds is symbiotic and flourishing.

 

 

Happy Huddle
Happy Huddle

In Happy Huddle, all of the forms are yellow. Only five of the forms have some red individuality rings, because the forms know and love each other so well, that they can perceive and appreciate each other’s uniqueness.  And all the happy goodness bubbles up and collects above them and spreads the love to all.

 

 

Happosition Harmony
Happosition Harmony

In Happosition Harmony, the forms represent two opposing factions that are coming together to resolve their differences.  There is some tension in the situation, but overriding that tension is calmness, and the ability to understand the opposition’s point of view.

 

 

Relearning Gravitational Resistance
Relearning Gravitational Resistance

In Relearning Gravitational Resistance, the forms have created a sort of floating nursery, because sometimes we all need to remember how to let go, relax, and just float.  The beginners are in the safe floating tubs at the bottom of the picture plane, and the more advanced are floating higher, with some nurturing assistance. Ahhhh…

These five pieces will be on display at Art District Gallery until March 22nd, 2017.

Amy the Author…

 I wrote a book!  Well, actually, I just wrote silly poems to accompany the images of my Snarkle Tart characters, and turned it into a photo book!  Hopefully, you enjoy fart humour….

More ‘books’ are in the works, the next ones will most like be colouring and/or doodle books.  Eventually, my take on Colour Theory as taught in my ‘Trouncing the Colour Wheel’ class will be turned into a book too – with words…in sentences!
