Art in Ink, Healing Works by Patricia Nosanchuk

April 2 - April 17

ARTIST STATEMENT

Meditation and art are my solace. I can just breathe and watch the universe unfold. This has healed any illness I have had. From this place I create my art. Most of the art pieces for this show were inspired from articles in National Geographic. I just couldn’t resist creating an eyeball, shaman, peacock, boy, Madagascar Fish Eagle, and camel herder with camels. Sometimes it takes me a year or so getting ready to do a piece that has me stumped. How in the world can I create water dripping into a pond with indelible ink as my medium? How can I paint in ink like I do and make this work? I was so happy when my husband showed my pictures to my son-in-law, and he said, “Wow, water dripping into a pond.” At least somebody got it. It took me a year to get up the nerve to paint a boy in ink and a year to pull off the peacock. Abstract is still my forte; the camel abstract just flowed. I am a mystic and created a whole series of chakra pieces, and I consider myself a Buddhist. Mindfulness and art are the blessings I am sharing with you in this art show. According to Jon Kabat Zen, the word medicine is derived from mindfulness. In his book Heal Thyself, Saki Santorelli quoted the poet Rumi as saying, “Look at the bandaged spot, and let the light in; the light comes not from without but from within.” Perhaps my art pieces can bring you to the same restorative spiritual place they bring me. Artwork and mindfulness are cathartic and healing.
