Art of quality affects the viewer emotionally, psychologically and intellectually. When such pieces can also be experienced through softness, warmth, touch--then they become magical. My medium is silk. My latest series is Spellbound in Silk.
Besides beauty and depth, my art also incorporates the understanding that we live in a divine, purposeful world. Existence is permeated with a sense of belonging.
For over thirty years I have been both a professional artist and a neurologist-neuroscientist. I have been artistically exploring the origins of thinking, of consciousness. How is it that we are aware of ourselves, of others? How is it that social interactions, culture, and civilizations arise? Basically, what is it that makes us human?
These silk works of art, just as my previous pieces, have multiple overlapping, interweaving layers of content, meaning and visual elements. Complexity of their design matches the complexity of our own thought processes.
In addition, I have been researching the Voynich manuscript, written in the early 15th century in northern Italy. This beautifully written text has never been deciphered, even by the most gifted cryptographers. I made significant progress in understanding this enigmatic book. A full explanation is in my YouTube video "Voynich Manuscript Explained". Briefly, this is a medical manual for healing women's illnesses, through herbal bathing rituals which include magical chanting. It was written in a convent and was inspired by the work of Hildegard von Bingen. Two of my recent silk scarves are based on this manuscript and truly deserve the term Spellbound.
With these scarves I am taking art off gallery and museum walls and making it available to use and enjoy. There is no better way to experience spellbinding art than by handling it, placing it next to your face, feeling it's softness and warmth. The artistic content of each scarf blends with your own inner being.
These are large-scale, 100% pure silk scarves, 140 x 140 cm (55 x 55 in). The mulberry silk used is of the highest quality with twill weaving. The printing techniques are state of the art. All materials used in the production process are environmentally friendly, non-toxic with OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification. STANDARD 100 is the strictest environmental certification in the world. These scarves are heavy, durable and warm.
