An iron door emerges.

Imagination reaches out to touch it’s textured surface

It is an entryway to a sunken treasure, an inter-dimensional portal to another universe.

When I took this photo, the object above was just sitting there as the light hit it. I traveled around the object shooting its surface from different angles, but it took me awhile to settle on the photo above. The other photos were interesting, but they did not have the curious quality that gave this photo it’s story. When an object begins to tell it’s story because it suggests something other than what it actually is, then emotion becomes attached to that inanimate object. We begin to relate to it in other ways, making a variety of associations and then eventually bringing them back to ourselves. Not everyone sees the same thing in an object that has been photographed.

What does this object remind you of?

What does it mean to you?

Time suspends herself.

Sighing blissfully as she stretchs shapes across a watery plane,

She holds up the mirror she invented.

Gazing upon her reflection,

She decides she turned out marvelously.

 

Have you ever wondered about space and time? If the veils fell and we became aware of other dimensions what would this transition look like? What does this picture remind you of?

Rhythmic delight

 

In this new series, Kitchen Transmissions, I decided to use objects you might find in your kitchen to create work that is a bright, bold play on light and movement. When I was a child, my autism made a trip to the mall or even to a neighbors house intolerable. Loud sounds, colors, and rapid movement in different areas of our home would make me panic. I would run to find a ‘safe spot’ to hide and destress. It wasn’t until I entered my college years that I finally made an attempt to dampen my senses and lessen my anxiety with earplugs or shades. While past experiences with sensory overstimulation¬†¬†caused me considerable grief, I wanted to get rid of the negative connotation commonly associated with these unpleasant experiences. In response to this, I created this body of work that simulates the rapid movement coupled with the bright, rich colors I experienced during these episodes. Instead of the fear and confusion that I felt, I wanted the viewer to experience energy, and a sense of renewal. Even the worst experiences can be used to positively to help others heal and grow in their creative journey.

This coming week, I encourage you to take your challenges and turn them into strengths.

 

 

5 Reasons Why This Saturday’s Artist Post Is Driving Me Crazy!

Marisa D. Aceves. Indomitable Arrow City At Dusk. digital art/photography. 2016.

I really wanted to give you a great post this Saturday, but as luck, fate or an overloaded system would have it, this is what it has come to!

*side note to you, the reader and myself (After this post is published, I will immediately throw my myself on the couch with fists flying, legs kicking and my loudest scream possible….you would too…if it happened to you….over and over…and over…

 

1. Whenever I try to attach my picture to the post all I get is a giant photo and some crazy code describing the height and width of the photo beneath it!

That’s right folks including the artwork to this post has been a &^%$!!! and the afternoon is just getting started….

 

2. My allergies are killing me!!!!! Honestly!!!!!

I didn’t get much sleep for this entire week! This is making me crazy mad. So therefore all my patience”flew out the window” on Wednesday.

 

3. My stupid tablet is acting up again!

If you’re a frequent tablet user, eventually what I so fondly call tablet hiccup or stiction will happen to you and if you have an especially nice tablet….then that will make you doubly insane….Don’t tell me to reboot or restart my tablet…I’ve done that…

 

4. I’m in a generally pissy mood!!!!

Yup, that’s what lack of sleep and frequent computer troubles will get you, especially if you are a sensitive flower…I mean like a cactus flower….yeah..reeeeeaaaal sensitive!!

 

5. I’ve been so busy with inbound marketing for my business and other health issues I wasn’t able to spend as much time as I would have liked this week working on my art!!!

This happens to the best of us! Not that I’m the best of you… For the moment I’m simply engaging in a little wishful thinking! However, when you can’t do the things you love as much…well…that’s kinda like telling a small child that they can’t play outside cause ‘ the other kids will catch the flu!!!!
*If you’re a wee bit sympatico and you’re not too busy…Hint…that..always helps…Drop on by my website acevesart.com and checkout my new geometric digital art landscape and cityscape paintings made with photography!
*Sincerely, despite all this weeks CHALLENGES ..I mean garbage…I have enjoyed sharing and learning with you. Have a wonderful weekend! Do somethig fun! Spend time with family and loved ones! Lift someone out of their self-imposed, world imposed misery! Practice compassion! Practice love! Never forget to explore the possibilites!
