Mission

~ Invest the Time to Explore Your Mind ~

“A picture paints a thousand words in an instant, after all, and symbolism can represent many different concepts all at once, with the use of form and colour.”~Phillip Langdon

Master Works Mission:

“I want to share with others how exploring your mind is like exploring an advanced forgotten technology that you hold the keys to.” ~ Kate the Artist

Without making a sound Art is Louder than the Lion ~ It is substance for the soul.

Through the process of painting I began to form a mission. One that encompasses what I have learned about deeper parts of the mind.

The subconscious speaks an exotic language that often uses metaphors with symbols and color to communicate. It’s tailored to our individual experience but also provides a connection to the collective, and holds many keys to potential.

In exploring how images have an influence on the mind, I recognized symbolism and color can be utilized as a rich tool and can be packed with insightful lessons and truth.

The Master Works evolved into functional art that, like puzzle pieces, connect and serve a united purpose; Transformation.

The series matured into paintings that embody various historical and philosophical references in addition to psychological symbolism, to help shed light into the darkness of the mind. Complimented by quotes from great philosophers and more, the Series shares thought provoking concepts with the use of archetypes that can help unblock subconscious strains for those open to it.

Your strength can sift through any substance, uncovering buried aspects that have been long forgotten, to shine light on the dark and grow.

The Master Work Series will be Exhibited in free spaces where anyone can visit!

The Self’s Sweet Secret is the title of both an upcoming self portrait and book that encapsulates a reflection of the united Master Work Series.

I learned about Villayat’s journey that lead to his creation of DAN (Disabled Artists Network). Through sharing awareness of PTSD in addition to the vastness of mental health and its connection and effects on physical health, Villayat’s work makes an impact and expresses what DAN is all about. He created an inspiring project that connects people through sharing their experience and art with others, which unites us in a powerfully human way by provoking compassion, healing, and strength. Because of this I’m grateful to participate in the DAN V3 exhibition. It provides a platform that utilizes the potential of creativity as a means of coping with adversity in life, especially when it comes to mental and physical challenges, which resonates so much with my work! I highly recommended contributing to and sharing this project! The application process is easy and the communication is great! The gallery space is also wonderful and digitally capable of exhibiting a variety of art from artist all around the world!
