Siri A. Lewis’ artwork speaks to me in a special way. Lately I have be trying to stay in tune with my spiritual side and open my mind up to learning about different religions. Her latest series she named the “Prayer Series.” This is Siri’s explanation behind the thinking of her creations….”I named this series the “PRAYER SERIES”. Each piece has its own unique energy signature. When a piece is for you you will feel a sense of connection, recognition; some people say it’s a feeling of happiness. While many people associate praying and prayers with religious practice, prayers can also be viewed as tools to achieve deeper self knowledge making us aware of our own spiritual nature, which leads us to being able to recognize ourselves as a part of a bigger tapestry. Once we get a glimpse of our own significance we can begin to contemplate on why we chose to be here and now, what is the mission that we came to accomplish. May my work inspire and energize you in your journey of discovery.”
I believe her work can do just that. After all we are all on a journey of discovery.
In her artists statement she wrote, “While I learned a lot and continue to learn, I work intuitively on each piece I create. In my past I may have planned a composition with specific scale and colors, in fact these images would stay with me until I completed them; when I work on “Prayers” I suspend the “I” and therefore have no plan in regards to composition and colors I may use, each piece evolves as I work on it.” I think for me as an artist one of my biggest struggles is getting so caught up on one thing. I think about what I am going to do in my head for so long before I finally sit down and try to accomplish all the things I had planned in my head. Unfortunately for me thats why very few of my plans come to fruition. I need to practice the mindset of being plan less and just get right to things and just get it all down on paper.
Here are just a few of Siri’s “Prayer” pieces. But please check out her website for the full series.
Something else that I found very interesting on her website was the way she showed off her pieces to give the vision of how they could look in different rooms of someones home. I think this is a very creative way to show off sellable artwork because it looks ten times more appealing then just the pieces in a gallery on a website. Siri has a true inspiring mind.
