The Magician in Georgia.

Hello <3,

So I have been on a mini break from the East Coast, and have taken some time to come out to GA and spend some time with my good friend, and fellow art cultivator Jennifer Edouard.

My painting "The Magician, Stanger Lover Come Heal My Eyes" signifies the opening of the Anahata, Heart Chakra. I painted it after coming to a place of divine healing and realizing the beauty of dream healing. At this point in my life I came to realize the importance of heart energy, and how the heart- is what truly leads, not the head.

The peacock feathers over the ears represent listening to the true voice with in, and coming to a place of wholeness. The hands in the eyes represent letting go, and allowing the heart to lead.

This painting has been here in GA, as it traveled last October to come to the radical Seeds of Sound Music Festival, which began in its infancy last Fall. The painting was displayed as a performance backdrop piece, featured with many great local GA musicians and artists, including Dissisoma and Merry Prankster.

The painting will now be displayed at Atlanta based holistic healthcare space, "A Touch of Health" Atlanta. If you are local to Atlanta, I encourage you to come see it.

While I am here I am also helping Jennifer, and co-creator Anthony Prince and Tommy Uribe with creating the second Seeds of Sounds Music Festival, which will again take place on The Oasis Family Farm, here in Sparta, GA. It will be an amazing experience, packed with healing art and ground breaking musicians, not to be missed.

Stay tuned for up-dates.

Love + Light,

Nerissa

 

Madre de Mai

The painting “Madre de Mai”, the 8th painting in my series "Nerieda's Odyssey" sold this month at Art House Productions, Jersey City. I am very grateful for the support I recieve from Jersey City, and for my path as an artist.

Madre de Mai initiates the opening of the Muladhara. She represents earth, and stands tall as a beacon of widsom, and light. The figure is representational of myself, and all women as healers, and was modelled by colleague and good friend Ariel Guidry. Madre, is depicted here supported by her past, and present. This is also represntational of my path and discovery of orgins, and how by knowing our origins, we unlock the secrets to knowing our body and the make up of our physical constitution. Pictorially, the orbs coming up at her left side represent music, inspired by Ariel,  and the creative light that comes from my Caribbean background. The square markings on the right of the woman represent the countries of South America, and the support brought by them.

"Madre de Mai apoya esta serie, y simboliza la apertura del chakra de la raíz. Madre es la llegada de la faminidad y equilibrio primordial. América del Sur de levanta de su grava y el caribe se levanta en orbes. Ella as la tierra. Ella es apoyada por su pasado y su presente, y se mantiene fuerte como infiel de esperanza y luz." - Nerissa Tutiven, translation Wendelin De Regalo

Some Fullmoon Wisdom, from Mystic Mama. @mysticmamma

Sending you love and wisdom on this January Supermoon, 2018.  

“Both eclipse seasons invite us to discover our own unique heart skills which we can contribute to our collective culture. “Love is supposed to lead the way for all of us.

“Women are especially called to add our voices and imaginations to help heal our cultural wounds, while men are called to defend what is true, beautiful and good in the world. “Our world is so out of balance that it has to descend into chaos to get remade. “All honorable people want to re-make the world with a more balanced, life-giving energy, which gives equal value to the feminine gifts of imagination, emotional intelligence and compassion as well as the masculine gifts of clarity, reason and justice…

“We all deserve to be loved just for ourselves and so many of us weren’t loved in that way. “Who would we have become if we were allowed to follow our soul’s longings in life? “…Who would we be if we all felt, down in our bones, that we are worthy of love? Not because we have money or are smart or good at our jobs, but just because we are alive? “If we can think these kinds of thoughts, and open our hearts to our original blessings and hopes, what would we do? Who would we be? What would our world look like." - Mystic Mama

The Dock, Downtown Jersey City

Hello Journey-ers and Art Lovers! 

Welcome to my blog; I began this body of work in 2014 and it has been the beginning of an amazing journey of self-discovery, I hope you enjoy it and enjoy following my work.

A little bit about me, I began this series as a way to describe my visceral experiences and to depict what healing looks like. Many times we keep our pain to ourselves, and as I began to grow as a woman, I began to realize the beauty of expansion.

I had my first Series 1, Gallery Show at "The Factory JC", in Jersey City Heights.

I am happy to say my artwork is now at The Dock, 373 4th Street, Art Space in Downtown Jersey City, NJ. I am so excited to be in this amazing space creating, alongside other amazing artists. Right next to White Eagle Hall and JCTC, I am so grateful to be in this little art hub. I will be continuing to work on my series while here.

Please feel to come visit me when you are in the neighbourhood.

E-mail me for appointments, or if you're just dropping by- I always answer my emails right away

Light, - Nerissa
