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.

Sacred Union

“Sacred Union” is a collection of self portraits with plants that was born on its own, sparked by my inner journey of meeting my true self and a bundle of dried purple flowers. The images were coming through seeking expression and I allowed/translated them into being. My body, a vessel, the plants complementing its shape and form. Camera, tripod, remote, me, no clothes, white wall, nature, love, unity, timelessness, ease, grace, simplicity. Every plant is unique, every image came with its own poem, all barely edited, au naturel.

Enjoy the fruits of this creative flow and the inspired lines that came with them – a result of me sitting with myself, bringing all kinds of random weeds to my apartment, taking photos and embracing/uniting/harmonizing all seeming opposites within.

With love, Ava ♥

P.S. You can use the collection as an oracle – see what image draws you and read the poem that goes with it 😉

Ava & Anais: The Journey Within

If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love another. How do you love the Self if you don’t know it? You look within, face it all and accept it… easier said than done, but not impossible. Then something beautiful follows…

I have always had a natural inclination to look inside myself, and when I first discovered Anais Nin’s quotes, I loved her soul right away. So, this happened…

Sometimes you can find yourself in another that speaks your language. When I first read one of Anaïs Nin’s quotes I felt immediate kinship. Books can be a window to the world, but her writing is a wide open door to her soul.

Fascinated by the journey within and the mysteries it hides, Anaïs ventured courageously inward and shared her findings through strings of words. I, on the other hand, have been using self portraits to document my descent into the psyche. It was only natural to put the two together.

“Anais Nin & Ava Sol” is a collection uniting two women who shared the same world in different times. What she said is what I felt and we both expressed the excess. Uniting darkness and light, making sense of the outer through the inner, transcending limitations and dwelling in the depths two souls connected through time and space lonely, yet not alone.

Enjoy the meeting of my photographs and her quotes as 1/1 NFTs on OpenSea. Because I have to take her into the future with me.

Can you co-create with somebody who is not in a body anymore? We do it all the time without knowing, for there is no other…The collection reads like a story with Anais’ quotes and my visuals. Enjoy 🙂

SoulSongs

Every soul comes with songs to sing and they can take many shapes and forms. Particles of oneness, never separate only appearing so, we are here to experience ourselves and express our unique self in ever new and original ways. Sometimes we blend and merge to create something greater together, and this is how SoulSongs were born. An alchemy between my photography and my soul sister Ioana Gheorghiu’s poetry/typography, these free-flowing soul gifts are now available as prints. Looking forward to sharing more of this effortless, exciting and enchanting collaboration with you ❤️

Fly Away

The featured photo is a beautiful artistic co-creation with Seamless… maybe it’s time to fly away… always exploring new horizons…

Some women birth babies
Some - worlds.
Others - both.
Whatever floats your boat.

between soul & bone

Powerful alchemy between two fellow dreamers: the new cover of “between soul & bone” by my amazing friend Ioana Gheorghiu! She messaged me one evening last week with ideas for redesigning the cover of her magical poetry book for its one year anniversary, and very the next day this co-creation was born! I could not be more honored, since every time I read her words they deeply touch my soul. If you are longing for home, fellow dreamer, this book is for you – it will take you on a journey through the inner landscapes of the mystery of being human and stir the re:membering within you.
