Under Their Watchful Gaze by Candace Wilson, Oil on canvas with Aventurine and Chalcopyrite
48” x 36”
Oil on canvas with aventurine and chalcopyrite
Original Art Work
Candace was hiking through primal forest last summer on her way towards a stiff climb and glaciers. In the forest the energy was absolutely pulsating with little nature spirits in the moss and tree stumps. Turning her head for a second, Candace noticed them gone. She realized how special a moment in time it had been. The memory has kept her going all these months later.
The green speaks to the heart chakra, healing all and everything to do with heart... emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Chalcopyrite is a stone of perception as well as protection whereas the aventurine soothes suffering and helps heal childhood traumas.
The magic of primal forest with the branches swaying is facilitated by the longer brush strokes. The impasto helps give one the sense of the vegetative texture. This painting will restore one's heart centre opening it to the love that nature brings.
Candace studied at les Beaux Arts in France but, her travels in the deserts of Africa and Oman, Antarctica and the Arctic that serve as her true place of learning and inspiration. Her creative process is fuelled by a desire to shift the consciousness of her viewers and abstract form allows a freedom to achieve this. One can go beyond the named and recognized, to move into that space of being where energy resides without borders...the space in-between. Without the conditioning imposed by language or labels, consciousness awakens, and the paintings exist as themselves, not as preconceived images or ideas. By incorporating newly understood quantum energetics, Candace has created works that affect body, mind, and spirit. With conscious use of intentionality, colour vibration, gemstones, sacred music and geometry, and zero pointing her work shifts both resonance and consciousness. Recognizing the beneficial effect for their patients, healing facilities are now acquiring Candace's work. She is widely collected internationally, both corporately and privately.
