“SAILING THE APOCALYPSE”: MEREDITH DEERHEART VERSES AND A “THERAPEUTIC PICTURE”…

In the end,

I knew not whether

life occurred

or

dissipated

amidst plumes of steam

rising,

collapsing,

re-forming light and dark

as

crystalline mists

dissolved all memory

of

horizons.

YES, YOUR PICTURES ARE THERAPEUTIC…”

This lithographic print is owned by fellow blogger and artist Meredith Deerheart (Indiana, USA) who wrote these beautiful verses (she also suggested the image title).  Meredith sent me also this precious comment:

The picture seems to speak about the mysteries of birth, death, and transformation. Many of your pieces seem to speak of these things. I meditated on these things while my leg held me down. I was quite injured for some time, but my mind held many things to ask you, and to share with you… so I wrote and still write. It is like your pictures tell many stories I know about, but cannot speak of directly. People understand poetry and verse… they see their own emotions reflected, and do not demand factual evidence to refute and mock. They see, they feel, they know reality in abstract representation. It made a good deal of sense to speak with your pictures. So yes, your pictures are therapeutic–they do not lie. They are very insightful.

You find Room #7 in the highest place of the historic castle. It’s a sort of hidden space you have to discover at the end of your visit at the exhibition. Here are presented for the first time five particular artworks created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” Project.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters and urban/street signs. He has already collected, around the world, more than 40.000 images.

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs, collages or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and ripped posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.

“DREAMS & LACER/ACTIONS”: THERAPEUTICAL HAIGA # 1 BY MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

 *

Dandelion winds

    Swirl April blossoms wildly.

    Tangos in the night.

*

Space drips, light bends gold.

     Lavender boughs lift lightly.

     Birth swirls around me.

*

Morning lamplight glows.

    Shadow curtains lace the glass.

    Drip dot April blooms.

These beautiful and evocative verses created by fellow blogger Meredith – healingminds@WordPress.com – begin a four compositions series titled “Dreams & Lacer/actions: Therapeutical Haiga. This collaborative project, born from the web, delivered in this post, also celebrates my One Year Anniversary at WordPress: I began this blog exactly one year ago on May 9, 2011.

Meredith – who lives in Lafayette, Indiana (Usa) – shared a preview about my most recent images I took from torn posters and cities walls during my trips in Netherlands and Italy. And she began to create verses…            

Meredith wrote this note about this creative experience: “I sit and sit with words, slips of paper, and dreams. Several thoughts came together on this picture, so far. I see a dancer, the dazzle of her dress made brilliant by a stage light.  Her lavender skirting and stage dust shake the brilliance of movement in all directions. Also, the soft, vibrant gold reminds me of Gustav Klimt. It’s like a view from beyond a pane of glass, spotted with raindrops. The warm glow of lamplight in early morning.  A rumpled quilt of lilac blooms splatter lavender shimmers in the early light of day. These are some of my thoughts, so far… These photos bring dreams!”

The first “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses comes from an Amsterdam street. It’s a realistic, natural and not manipulated or enhanced image. My eyes found it near a door where someone probably (and carelessly) left paint drops…

Now that spontaneous and casual scene has become a visual art piece suggesting beautiful and fascinating verses: I thank  Meredith for this collaboration which is also a particular experimentation based on colors, images, words, thoughts, emotions and sensorial perception. Yes, pictures for healingminds…

ABOUT MEREDITH

Meredith (www.healingminds.wordpress.com) writes from a rich text based in theater, art, and design training. Also rooted from the soil of personal experience, Meredith writes about mental health and its challenges; her value of developing creative pursuits as part of the equation for living a satisfying life in the face of mental illness and recovery include yoga, dance, writing, and photography. 

Meredith’s professional background began in directing and choreography.  Her education in dance and theater lent equal weight to creating movement and learning projects for school children, grades K thru 12, and mentoring independent theater projects for high school students. When mental illness changed the landscape of her life, Meredith returned to school and redirected her passions toward quieter pursuits in architectural design.  Most recently, her love for writing and well-being generate roomy, new ideas about beauty and life, and she writes about mindful living from a deeper understanding.
