Tender emotion comes through in the way we live through trials and tribulation. It is by loss that we are marked with experience, and it is by sorrow that we embrace catharsis.
"The wound is the place where the light enters you", penned by the poet Rumi, aptly describes the essence of the collection. Through endurement, and, enjoyment, of the journey we are rewarded with new beginnings and a sense of gratitude.
A powerful mixture of emotions are depicted in Julia’s paintings, “Clearing Dawn”, “Moroccan Stardust, “Aurora” and “Rising”.
5 scented candles blended for your healing accompany the collection. The Heart Chakra, called upon to instill love and bliss in one's heart, is present on each candle. For those who have lived through heartbreaks, and for those surviving present heartbreaks... this collection was made for you. This is a celebration of love.
Peace and light,
Contemporary abstract artist Julia Contacessi explains her process as a combination of conscious and subconscious exploration. With a focus on color, texture and composition, Julia strives to delivers an atmospheric, feel-good effect in every one of her pieces. The artistic influence of Helen Frankenthaler and her belief that there is “no formula” and the artist should “let the picture lead you where it must go,” are principles that Julia embraces. In addition, finding beauty in the contrasting nature of things, much like artist Patricia Larsen, is what Julia seeks through her work.
