The core in the release of self-expression whether we’re conscious of it or not is vulnerability, and through creation we can discover our true and essential invulnerability.
By letting go of resistance and fear in life and in creation we open ourselves up to explore new experiences which help us break out of our comfort zones, transcending us further into our self-growth, and connecting us to our most authentic selves. This also forges a link between the observer and my creative vision by encouraging the observer to use their imagination in generating their own visceral interpretation of what they see.
In creation I find a release of emotional energies which is very therapeutic and healing for me. Through my artistic self-expression I’m able to navigate through my emotions and transmute them into something greater; imagination and invention.
In self-expression I aim to shed facades and instead connect and share my authentic self. This is why when creating I let go of the expectations of perfection and instead focus on the release, creating no boundaries for the release of expression. For the imperfections are what make the expression raw, real, and vulnerable.
Connecting with my most authentic self builds a bridge to my eternal spirit which creates a channel not only to the creator but to my ancestry and heritage. Not only am I healing myself through creating but I’m also connecting and healing traumas tied to my ancestors.
In all, the authenticity of my art begins with confronting my vulnerability and letting my imagination and inspiration break free from any barriers and creating an experience not only for myself but for the observer. In hopes that I can inspire the observer to use their imagination and connect to their creativity and vulnerability.
