Founded and run solely by women, MindSpace Collective is driven by the female consciousness. While we aim to provide an all-inclusive and supportive platform for any artist and entrepreneur in our community, the very heart of our purpose is our desire to connect with, support, and empower our fellow woman. It is our mission to build her up, provide her tools so her voice is heard and her vision is seen, to live her truth and ignite the fire within her that this world so desperately needs. There is a new day emerging and the goddess is rising!
Born of our desires to support every artist, as well as the feminine spirit, it is our pride and joy to announce our latest gallery collaboration with three incredibly talented artists, Iris Coe-Gross, Kali Levitov, and Larissa Kulyk, who have graciously come together with us for this special event. Goddess Rising features these inspirational local artists whose work draws on the feminine spirit, family, empowerment, and spirituality. Read more from the artists below.
▽ Iris Coe-Gross
"Since I was ill drawing has been my artistic lifeline. This show represents my creative journey these last 2 years of living and art. I've stopped painting and taken to pen and paper. Painting became too physically exhausting during my treatment. Ink on paper and tile allows me to draw quickly, so I can put everything out there in one sitting. It allows for beautiful errors that I would normal critique and paint over. It allows my mind to flow uninterrupted and in sync with the ink."
▽ Kali Levitov:
“By bringing my personal practice of mindful awareness to the work, I found gateways to the enlightened states of being and directly experienced how these can reveal to us and align us with aspects of our higher selves. Both during traditional visualizations and while painting a deity, my body receives transmissions which harmonize my awareness with that deity’s awareness. I feel this awakened awareness pervading all the aspects of my life— both internally and externally. "
▽ Larissa Kulyk:
"In my work I celebrate my sister, Tamara Regina, and all sisterhood. These paintings follow my journey as I navigate my mourning and healing over her end stage colon cancer. Painting became an outlet for release as our family endured the dark world of cancer. My sister was a bright light in this world. In my pieces I create Ukrainian sisters that capture her light and the rawness of femininity. My Ukrainian sisters have brought me some peace and reckoning over the past few years."
