Welcome to Saturday Night Live Art Shows ! I am Mary Ann Benoit and am with you tonight from Seward Alaska! So excited to be with you tonight to share my new idea, called Aligned Energy Art and three fractal art pieces I designed to introduce it.
Be sure to check out all the other artists from around the world, having art shows in their Facebook and social media feeds at 6-9 pm in their time zones. Follow Saturday Night Live Art Shows on Facebook by searching #snlartshows.
Introducing "Release" Aligned Energy Art
My latest fractal art, named “Release” was inspired by the idea of releasing all the things in our lives that do not serve us and make us feel heavy. One of my teachers, Jim Fortin, often repeats this quote from his mentor, DX, that “when you think too much, you make yourself heavy, and when you are heavy, you can not fly”.
What does that mean? We all have things in our lives that make us feel heavy, uncomfortable, angry, resentful, and other ways that do not promote well-being.
They take our time and energy and stress us out. It might be things, like clutter, or things we do, or over-do that we really don’t enjoy or do to please others.
When was the last time you took an inventory of those things to see how many were really adding anything important or meaningful to your life?
I decided many months ago that I wanted to release things that were taking up too much of my time and causing me to feel stressed and overwhelmed. “Release” became my new motto, and favorite word.
I noticed, the more I released, the better I felt. Thinking about the word “Release” daily, helped me improve my well-being.
I was thinking about the concept of releasing things when I created this art.
As I described in my previous Saturday Night Art Show, creating fractal art, which is digital art, is like traveling through a kaleidoscope until you find the perfect spot to stop and then you can adjust any element you want.
The place I chose looks like a landscape filled with mountains and rivers from above, releasing the energy of the water and soil down to the ocean where you see it expanding out from there.
It has the colors of fall, and the energy of the changing of the seasons, when the trees release their leaves and transform themselves to be ready for winter.
It has the colors of nature and the earth, greens and browns, blues, yellow and orange.
The greens and colors of nature add a feeling of calmness and well-being, as if sitting in a beautiful forest. This is the feeling I want to have as a result of releasing what no longer serves me.
As I usually do, I created 2 more pieces to go with it, so you can see the movement between pieces and use three together over a sofa t create a focal point in a room.
How can you use Aligned Energy Art in your space?
If the message of “Release”, or future concepts I plan to create resonate with you, then adding art that is meaningful as well as beautiful is a great way to create your perfect space and remind yourself of what is important in your life each day when you see it.
Art like “Release” can be added to your living room, bedroom, meditation or work out area or wherever your intuition guides you to put it.
Because this art is digital, it can also be put on a variety of home decor products such as pillows, bedding, serving trays, coffee mugs, notebooks and more. So you could think about “Release” as you sip your morning coffee out of a “Release” coffee mug while writing things you want to release your “Release” journal for example, drinking out of your travel cup on the way to work or doing yoga on a “Release” mat.
Aligned Energy Art is another layer of meaning beyond the visual beauty in creating your perfect space that is aligned with who you want to be.
I created this Edesign, or virtual design as an example of how you could created a space using this art and expressing the energy of “Release” in your space. Note the “Release” fractal art on the framed canvases on the wall, the serving tray on the coffee table, the pillow on one of the chairs and the place settings on the table.
Your selection of art determines the energy you want to surround yourself with.
How do you want to feel?
Get the Look
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into how this fractal art was created and can enhance the energy and feeling you want in a space. Besides incorporating my art in this space, I used a variety of products created by other artists and tried to use eco-friendly products as much as possible. here are some of the products I used. Some contain affiliate links, meaning I may make a small commission for sharing if you purchase something at no additional cost to you.
I love these beautiful hand knotted wool rugs from Turkey and New Zealand, and the coffee table, end tables and dining table created by artisans from Mexico.
This modern global style design works nicely the colors of fall, and some of the 2022 colors of the year, which are primarily shades of green.
What is Fractal Art?
Fractal art is digital art I create on my computer. I love creating fractal art because it allows me to work with brilliant colors, interesting textures, and incredible detail. Learn more about how it is created in my last Saturday Night Live Art Show, ” A Passion for Purple” where I show some video of the process. See examples at my store on Society 6.
