Choose what calls and adventure with me! SAL
Which artworks call you?
I’m SAL and I’m an explorer. Crossing the Andes on the back of a tiny 150cc motorbike (several times!) has taught me that when we dare to adventure into previously unimagined possibilities, we know aliveness.
I make art to catalyse transformation in myself, but also in the viewer who resonates with its energies. This may sound strange, but the concept isn't new; the Native American Navajo Indians are way ahead of me!*
Which artworks should you choose? Well, here's what I believe:
the SALchemy artworks that call you are the ones you need.
Prints with special effects, really?
Each SALchemy artwork has its own special energies and intention; I sense them.
You might choose an image just because you like it, and, if so, I'll be delighted. But, if you'd like to explore a little more, tune in to my words on the product pages to see which artworks, in extra and unexpected ways, could bring fresh energy to something else you seek.
These artworks want to help us. I use them to encourage desired thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
These artworks want to be shared. I'd love you to experiment with the prints you buy. View them often. Ask them to support your wishes. Most of all, feel them to be not only artworks, but also helpful friends.
*What the Navajo Indians know
Through years of what I like to call my 'joy experiments' in paint, I came to believe that the presence of an artwork can be healing, when its energetic potential has been consciously intended by its creator. But could it really be?
Then, in summer 2020, I was told by a shaman (Catherine Maguire of the IN-Lightenment School) of the way that Navajo Indians use works of art in healing rituals. The Navajos create sand paintings on the ground to act as portals for healing spirits; a person in need may sit on the painting, so that their energies may be absorbed into it, and they themselves can be healed.
This resonates with my beliefs. A spirit of healing may come in many forms, like a brightening, a sense of strength, a feeling of being understood; even if you put my artworks on your wall and never think of them again, I intend that their kind energies will be present and always there to help you.
The first SALchemy prints
Grounded in the UK by the C-19 pandemic, I adventured daily on my iPad, in paint (so far, for over 250 days!). The result? Artworks born in a time of change, to accompany us in ALL times of change.
I was excited when I saw the Giclée prints of these iPad paintings; the artworks had found their way to be shared. Each print comes direct from the original digital artwork and is the only way it can exist in material form.
Colours, 'textures' and energies resonate from the eco-friendly Fine Art Hahnemühle Bamboo paper. The print operation is zero-carbon-footprint. And, a tree will be planted in the Andes for each print sold.
The first SALchemy print collection is of 25 artworks from my C-19 project, chosen for their kind energies.
SALchemy is a wish to send art into the world that could help us through times of challenge or change, with a desire to live more authentically, or to feel more joy. But, there are many other ways to brighten our lives, and we will each find our own. Whichever path you choose today, I wish you well. SAL
