Arts and Spirituality Exhibit and Reception: “Conversations with Land: deep-listening mark-making” by Damini Celebre.
“This body of work is influenced by my personal relationship with the Spirit that lives in all things.
Listening deeply allows my mind to get out of the way; allowing me to reach a deeper place inside me, to feel and respond to Land. My direct emotional response and interaction with Land is what creates a mark.
Relationships are built by an exchange of energy and respect. These paintings honors the Land, Place, and the relationship with the two.
This work is a prayer, an honoring and an offering to the Web of Life.”
