Wow! This is why I love my work! A last week we had a group of wonderfully aged citizens come through the gallery (Graydon Gallery)... I was asked to do an impromptu artist chat about my work. Afterwards I had two lovely ladies open up and share some rather personal stories of survival. One lady told us that this artwork was saying 'Get Up & Enjoy Life' she said it tells her to 'Be happy!' This from a lady that then went into sharing a story that when she was 14 she was forced to sleep on top of graves in the open and the dead of the night in Europe when they were escaping the Nazi's! Going further into unpacking how she has come though some very testing times in her life. The other lady was eager to share her story of survival over breast cancer and loosing her breast, she shared with me that her husband loved her breasts but they both grieved and survived together! This my friends is art for wellbeing...💜 Not just for me the artist but for the viewers who let the artworks speak to them & allow themselves to listen & share! It's no coincidence that my current works are all titled 'I am that, I am!' People are picking up on the energy that goes into these works and responding emotionally with depth and courage! Thank you beautiful ladies... 'Get up & enjoy life! Be happy! I am that, I am! #artforwellbeing #energycircles #iamthatiam #artforjoy #art #felicitykellycruise
