During Lockdown I started working with acrylic paint on black paper and really enjoyed the results!
It is often claimed that all taboos in art have been broken by now (think of a banana duct-taped to a gallery wall or pickled sharks) but I do not agree with that.
A huge taboo remains in force when it comes to Sacred Art, art made in partnership with Spirit, art made from a place of non-egoic consciousness.
Religion and spirituality remain no-no topics in contemporary art practice (something the upcoming Goddess Now Show will change!)
Another taboo is painting anything that looks too pretty, too enchanting or (heaven forbids) resembles an illustration from a picture book for young children!
I am 53 years old and I am in Lockdown with my beautiful family. I gave myself permission to 'run wild' and paint exactly what asked to be painted. This page shows the results (and how much fun I am having!)
