Shinto: Ethereal Realms Intersecting Regality
*Currently being exhibited (and insured) at Las Cruces Museum of Art. Available after December.
"Shinto" by Tamara Liz encapsulates the harmonious convergence of the spiritual and physical realms. This work stands as a testament to Tamara's signature style, where abstraction meets symbolism, drawing viewers into a meditative trance and evoking a deep sense of spiritual introspection.
Composition and Artistry:
At first glance, the ethereal, soft blends of colors immediately capture the viewer's attention. The use of gentle yellows and golds, juxtaposed against muted blues and purples, mirrors the interplay between the heavens and earth, day and night, conscious and subconscious.
Themes and Symbolism:
The veil-like structures in the center of the painting can be perceived as gateways, reminiscent of the Torii gates in Shintoism, which mark the entrance to a sacred space. They symbolize the delicate boundary between our tangible world and the ethereal realm of spirits and energies.
Tamara Liz's fluid brush strokes, particularly the downward cascading blues, represent the flowing nature of life and the omnipresent influence of the divine in every moment. This fluidity speaks to the Shinto belief in the impermanence of life and the eternal cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
The grounding earth tones at the bottom suggest the physical world, while the luminous hues above resonate with the divine realm. This duality reflects the Shinto principle of honoring both the spirits (Kami) and the tangible world they inhabit.
Tamara is renowned for her ability to seamlessly weave spiritual themes with abstract expressionism. "Shinto" exemplifies this, as the painting doesn't just depict the "Way of the Gods" but invites viewers to experience it. Her choice of colors, combined with the strategic layering of paints, creates depth, inviting viewers to look beyond the surface and embark on a personal spiritual journey.
"Shinto" by Tamara Liz is not just a painting; it's an experience. It stands as a bridge between two worlds, urging viewers to recognize the sacredness in everyday life and connect deeper with the energies around them. In its essence, it captures the very soul of Shinto beliefs, making it a masterpiece both in form and spirit.
