ARTIST STATEMENT: Artist Statement: Bianca Dorsey
I use my paintings to show people how beautiful they are, how strong & empowered they are and how spiritual they are. I do this by painting everyday people as Divine, so they can see the light within them. The images in my paintings often come to me in visions.
I get a lot of spiritual guidance in my life and in my work. I listen to spirit guides, my intuition and my heart in manifesting my creations. Meditation keeps me spiritually centered so I can be open to receiving guidance about my work and my life. The most important thing when I create a piece is staying true to the vision
My medium is often silk or wood and mixed media because I enjoy the absorbency of these mediums.Â I often attach gemstones, fabric and other media to bring the energy of these objects into the paintings. The way I mount my paintings on silk with a border of silk or another fabric, is like a thangka (A Thangka is a Tibetan painting on cloth. It is typically of a spiritual nature and often considered sacred). Having lived two years in Seoul, Korea I have a lot of Asian influence in my artwork that reflects my life.
The paintings are intended to inspire inner peace and a heightened spiritual awareness for all. I wish for others to get in tune with or get a glimpse of their higher selves through my creations.
