J I V A N A's Soul Art

What Inspired you to do a Soul Art journey?

I have participated before and loved the journey. It’s therapeutic, healing, and it’s great to be in ceremony with others be it virtual or not.

How would you describe your creative process?

Digital, multi-media, and inspired. The first part of my piece are two animated images of a priestess circle/ mandala that “give birth” to my message. Although I followed directions, I had to follow them in a way that would translate digitally all the way through. I wanted my yoni in the art and used as my outline so I photographed basically a bikini-covered crotch shot. I consider myself an artivist, so I wanted to incorporate some sort of message or piece of activism. I did a mini-beach cleanup and decided to write the word fuck with some of the plastic I collected as inspired by Adam Fu of the Give A Fuck movement. You then see a series of images that get progressively bigger, as my intention and manifestation of “giving a fuck” grows in the art. The psychedelic background to the message actually incorporates the images found through the process (warrior women I admire).

What insight did you receive from your Soul Art?

In my quest to help bring the Goddess back to mainstream consciousness, it is amazing how “She” shows up and validates the eccentric priestess work I am doing. The beginning images of my series turned into what I see as a priestess circle giving birth to my message of “giving a fuck”.

Here is the poem that came from the work:

Sisterhood of Eternal Fucks Given

Wisdom of old Gaia Shekinah Sophia Many faces of Her Returns hope of Love

What is the most important thing you would like to share about your Soul Art experience?

I found it a great way to create meaningful content for the day. So much so that I haven’t felt the need to post anything on my profile since. It was created to be viewed on Instagram as it is multi-media so it is best viewed on Instagram as the animation lives there as well as the ability to scroll.
