KunstRomantik #5! Stuttgart

I’ll be in Stuttgart guest tattooing August 6th through the 12th. At my friend Melli’s new address for her hair salon, Dos ‘n’ Dyes. There is a big party on the 11th. Art, music, food, drink, and tattoos.

Mandalas

Mandala- is the tibetian word and symbol for circle. It can also be translated as sphere, environment, community, cosmos, or microcosmos. It is pricipally used for focus during meditation, as a spiritual guidance tool. A reminder of balance or what these things mean to you, or an offering. Sacred space. Used also to induce a trancelike state, which can be helpful when trying to shed all of our preconceived ideas and beliefs learned over a lifetime of bad influences from our environment and society. I’m not jumping on the tattoo bandwagon, 4 of these drawings I drew 20 years ago. That being said, I think a mandala tattoo is great portable meditation reminder and magic to boot!

Stuttagart Winter Trip

stuttgart1

As I’ve been traveling so much this year, I haven’t had the chance to write a little about all my trips. In Febuary I was in Stuttgart for 10 days. It was when I changed my hair to pink! And I did some cool tattoos too.

Hearts Milagros

My Ritualistic Miracle Hearts Project

by Sunny Buick

Milagros are mexican embossed tin hearts that are hung in the home or on an altar to ask God for a miracle, or showing gratitude for one that has been granted. I identify with the miraculous heart, it’s the perfect symbol for what I am feeling, or more precisely a denial of what I am feeling. A desire to feel something else. A self-prescribed form of therapy, after what seemed like a year filled with tragedies.

I’m calling this kind of work Ritualistic Art. My ritual is to choose a theme and explore it thoroughly.

I start with a fixed idea and see where it goes, discovering with excitation the unexpected, the unknown. Choosing the detail to pay attention to and then finding it everywhere. Each heart has a different story, illuminates another dark corner, like a candle lit séance.

I work with an intention to understand what is happening on the interior, to create from the center of my emotional being, to objectify the inner states of my soul, to cherish each moment and be present.

Creation is divinity manifesting, devotion to the process and the Goddess. Making art is my way of praying by myself and then finding courage to share with the world. Courage that comes from the heart is my offering.

These hearts have become an obsession, turning my anxiety into a positive and productive activity. Instead of fear and paranoia, I chose to manifest love and miracles. Asking in the spirit of generosity for a never ending supply of ardor in my heart, not to hold onto for myself, but regenerative, expanding, and contagious.

That eternal yearning, searching for intimacy, the “into me see” connection with others. Asking to have more sympathy for others, affection for others. If showing love is the ritual, sharing love is the offering, love becoming a virus is the reward, the magic spell.
