STILLNESS TO ELYSIAN
PARTICIPATES IN THE FLORENCE BIENNALE INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION
in Fortezza da Basso
14 - 22 October 2023
ABOUT THE STILLNESS TO ELYSIAN
The Stillness to Elysian series represents the 10 stages of the artist's life in meditation that emanates from stillness. The paintings illustrate a myriad of metamorphosis stages from awakening, determination, balance, contentment, recreating vision, exploration, reminiscing, satisfaction, submissiveness, and achieving bliss from spiritual rebirth. "Going through a roller-coaster of emotions during unprecedented times of our lives is natural" according to the artist. However, when the mountain of doubt shifts, an aurora of hope appears. This anomaly of intense emotions may be ephemeral at first but conceivably restored with feelings of self-exploration until it captures the person's blissful state of rebirth or Elysian. Similar to the historical works of the artist, she consistently communicates that "hard work is a form of meditation" and the Stillness to Elysian paintings demystify Chiqui's months of introspection that describe an individual's spiritual journey from the abyss of uncertainty to the high road in realizing elysian.
