In essence, we are all vibrating particles, right? If we really break anything down; be it a fan, a piece of wood, a tree, our skin, a rock, anything! at the very core we’re these little vibrating particles all vibrating at different frequencies; thus meaning, whatever frequency one is vibrating at it will therefore attract people and situations vibrating at a similar frequency.
Furthermore, if we choose to perceive life from this perspective it would become apparent that we are immersed in this interconnected web of vibration. That we are in this sea of vibrating particles, and that two elements vibrating next to each other are bound to impact one another.
My first upcoming exhibition is entitled exactly this “vibrational Being”.
So what does this mean? It’s experiencing life in its fluidity, for indeed change is the only constant in this beautiful thing we call life.
Change, change, change!
It is inevitable, yet for some reason we do like to solidify things, hold onto things, create some sort of permanence; yet it is when we resist the natural flows of life, when we try to solidify that which is fluid; that is when tension occurs, that is how we create suffering for ourselves. The more we resist that which is actually happening, the more we create that which we desire to eliminate.
Vibrational Being is a recognition that there is so much more to us than meets the eye, it is a recognition that in essence we are vibration. It is a recognition that different vibrations carry a different frequency, and that at different moments in life we each have our own frequency. That when we operate at a higher frequency, it is expressed in everything we say and do, we are lighter, and thus attract others and situations vibrating at that same frequency. It is also a recognition of the opposite; that when we are vibrating at a lower frequency we are denser/heavier, and will attract people and situations vibrating at that same frequency.
When we see and experience this we come to recognize that we are a part of this much larger web, and that everything we say or do, impacts so many others; at the same time it becomes evident that we are influenced by so many variables, so many other people, situations, moments; there is so much at play that makes us who we are in each and every moment.
In essence this is what I hope to express in the collection which I shall be exhibiting in Cork this coming month. A reminder that we are energetic Beings, and an essential part of a much larger interconnected web.
Time is flying, the momentum is building, and I’m both excited and petrified – well, petrified might be a bit of a dramatization, but definitely scared or nervous!
So, next month I shall be having my first two exhibitions here in Cork. Yay! Very excited, and super grateful for all the support I’m getting in the organization of these. Little shout out to Rachel Marsden from the Great Creative Life, for her support along this journey; and my dearest mama for all her help in so many ways, and all my wonderful buddies for Being the wonderful supportive BEings that they are. =)
The two collections are selections from my painting journey over the past 7 years!! - I am totally baffled that it has been 7 years? Yet the canvas’s would beg to differ, so here we are, 7 years in, and really appreciating to be able to see the evolution of it. Even more exciting are the current pieces I’m working on, however, that will have to be for next year =)
The first exhibition is entitled Vibrational BEing, and shall be taking place in Cork city from the 7th of August until the 4th of September at the Web WorkHouse on Winthrop street. This collection contains more abstract, and portrays the interconnected energetic nature of life. To summarize it.
While the second exhibition entitled Soul Connection, shall be taking place from the 11th of August until the 4th of September, at the café at Stephen Pearce Pottery. This collection on the other hand is more focused on the human experience, the realization that we are both human and divine creatures; and that when we choose to access it, our potential is unlimited.
I grew up running around my dads pottery, playing spies with my buddies, hiding amidst bales of hay and then sneaking off to interrogate the poor staff. Throwing clay around the place at pretend weddings. Insisting on being allowed to assist in the sales process and play with the till. So I’m truly grateful to be exhibiting here at my roots!
It’s quite empowering to know that I can share my art, for that is half of the process, sharing it with others so that they can gain insight, beauty, momentary immersion into the now, or whatever it is they have to take from it. Yet at the same time I’m quite scared that I’m going to end up falling flat on my face. Not quite literally, but more or less figuratively. Painting is my greatest passion, my favourite medium for sharing myself, and we all know how important I believe it is that we express and share ourselves with the world.
Yet this is truly from the heart, it’s me baring my heart and soul, exposing myself; and I’m slightly nervous.
Fears of failure, of rejection, of shame, inadequacy..
Yet, what’s the worst that could happen?
This is part of the process though, constantly putting ourselves out there, over and over, and over again. Not just me, but for all of us, in this journey of growing, expanding, and becoming the fullest expressions of ourselves. Sometimes things turn out as we hope, while other times they do not. It’s trying new things, it’s being brave, stepping outside our comfort zone, and it is though that, that we grow.
