Original Art - The lights: moon, sun & earth
'The lights: moon, sun & earth’
“Heal yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon… Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember... you are the medicine.” - Advice from María Sabina a Mexican healer and poet.
I have always felt a fascination for the circular shape. Circles have no beginning or end, and they also feel free and soft. Maybe this is the reason I love painting the shape, and although the formal name for a circular artwork is ‘tondo’, I always called my paintings ‘moons’. For years now, every month I have dedicated one painting to each moon, or ‘La luna’, one of my biggest loves.
After the last visit to my family in Mexico, I felt a strong calling to my roots, and I started reading all about rituals and the historical importance to people of the moon and sun cycles. I learned that in astrology Moon and Sun are referred as ‘The Lights’: day-light and night-light, so it is really all about the light!
I suddenly realised that all my life I have looked at the moon and her cycles, but very little of my awareness has gone towards the sun. So this collection was born with the goal of including both lights, the sun and the moon. I also included the earth as symbol of myself, my own light that is also your light.
