finish… my… sentences…

This collection of self-portraits represents me coming to terms with the truth that I am enough and too much at the same time, and that’s perfectly fine/I would not have it any other way.

I co-created directly with the Sun, the images/videos are NOT EDITED at all, shot in Santa Barbara, CA in August/September 2022, natural light, natural body, natural raw real whole self.

How simple, yet hard to accept oneself completely. However, if/when you do everything somehow falls into place. 🙏❤️‍🔥☀️

“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

Elemental Roadmaps

There are unseen passages that open up just for us when we turn within to connect with the truth of who we are. Nothing else is needed, but a willingness to look, to be still, to surrender to the elements, to feel, to know… any time and any place is right to explore the roadmap of the soul.

She was never alone:
The Sun hugged her all over
The Earth supported her every step
The Water nurtured her roots
The Air encouraged her flight
She contained them within.
She gave birth to them without.

Bible Study

Within

Bible Study I: Within

“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21

*

The greatest mysteries reside inside.

No need to search,

No need to strive.

Come home:

Arrive.

Art & The Artist

Going through the photos on my phone, I found this conversation which still rings true… I am a channel for the art that wants to come through me and I feel like it’s shaping/showing my soul’s roadmap, yet the meaning it holds for everyone will be unique… Blending the personal with the universal…

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

― Gospel of Thomas

Light Being

“Light Being” is a collection of 101 light edits of a single image of light/shadows on my body. Inspired by generative NFT collections, product of my AI {Authentic Intuition}, photos are named after “light” in different languages.

Deep down inside of each and every one of us, there is a space of luminescent Light and boundless Love. At our core we know that this is who we truly are and we can return home at any moment, communing with the soul in solitude and listening to the whispers of the heart. Beyond good and bad, beyond right and wrong, beyond any seeming separation there is only oneness manifesting itself in myriads of forms. One of them is you, another me, yet another he/she…. Different on the surface, yet the same in essence.

When we move from our center, we are capable of achieving all of our heart’s desires while being in harmony/contributing to the whole. Which Light Being are you most drawn to/speaks your language? Find your truest soul expression and let it shine!

Ava’s World Manifest: NFT, Community & Positivity

Hello… is it me you’re looking for?? I’ve not been posting here for a while now, for I have found the manifestation of the world I have been creating in my imagination. Where? On NFT Twitter of all places… never ever would have assumed it, but I followed the energy flow and it always knows. I joined the community through a string of synchronicities in August, not knowing anything about anything. It’s my style – diving head first into the unknown, and figuring out the details as I go. Twitter spaces have amazing for making connections with incredible humans and having my art seen/appreciated/collected has been so humbling and exciting!!! So, without further ado, here is my first interview as an NFT artist. Very very grateful to Priyanshu for inviting me as his guest on his wonderful podcast!!!

P.S. Yes, you get to see my face!! And my cats!!!

My first podcast interview ever!!

Ava & Henry: The Journey Without

Henry Miller and Anais Nin were lovers, and if they had a lovechild that would be me, Ava Sol. I find both of their expansive personalities fascinating – so similar, yet unique in their own ways. They expressed what was within them through words, and I have been doing it through self portraits. This collection is a dialogue between Henry’s poetic and mine, his quotes complimenting my images and/or vice versa.

Feminine and masculine meet, harmonize, complete. To get a better feel of Henry, watch his “Bathroom Monologue” on YouTube – how could you not want to be friends with him? 🙂 He was curious about so many things and not afraid to explore them with an open mind. Like Anais – both free souls being themselves.

Enjoy the meeting of my self explorations/portraits (taken anywhere between 2011 and 2021) and his quotes as 1/1 NFTs. Because I have to take him into the future with me, too.
