One of my earlier EV, this work is so intimate, is about the big-heavy responsibility we have in hands when born a child, the pain implicated in giving and supporting another life, but is also about the wonder of life, the maximum gift God/Goddess give us every day and how we hurt each other when don’t understand that simple truth. I was in a painful situation with my partner and I channelize it through this theme. I totally exposure my deep inner feelings here. I offered my soul as a gift.
|Changes by Enchanted Visions Artist, Harkalya Reveur|
When I saw this theme first idea came to my mind was the I-Ching, so I decided to take on it since my particular wheel of changes, I painted a kind of mandala with my own symbols and evolutive process, there are my city, farm, sons, pets… my yins and yangs, with a touch of chaos in the middle and a general sense of beauty, just changing between dark and light and vice versa like the moon…
|Little Things by Enchanted Visions Artist, Harkalya Reveur|
“Villa Harkalya: Little Things” for the theme “Wonder”
With the theme Wonder I painted a very “realistic” landscape of my farm, my friend hummingbird and my beautiful rose, there is details like the bees because they are very important to us, the avocado tree showed as a wisdom tree, that it is in fact! I tryed to show how focusing in the little-magic-fantastic-everyday-things give you the strong to support all the remain, the messed part, the ugly and sad and dark.
EV has a monthly auction of the work created. Do you sell your work there?
I am trying to do it, I will certainly do more on the future, when solve some difficult with international shipping and internet at home.
Are there challenges knowing you are one of many artists creating art for the same EV theme? Does this knowledge hinder you or give you momentum when creating for the monthly theme?
Every month I challenge myself to give my best and try to do it on time because I respect and admire a lot the art of my fellows and I am so proud to be part of this collective, is like I found my soul family. It is absolutely inspiring. I can`t wait to see what other artists had created for each theme, is amazing to see all works together, I spend hours looking into each piece.
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I had been a very unpredictable person all my life, maybe people be surprised to know I was a clown actress in a circus group for a while…
Describe (and provide a photograph if you like) of your studio/work space. What would you change about it, if anything, for it to become your dream work space?
Currently my studio is everywhere I am, lap, kitchen, room, outdoors, any table, etc… also finally after years wishing for, I have my own space for workshop but… right now is like a storage room and definitively needs more natural light… I am planning this will be a place for art classes, working and a community library for people –children- around my home.
