“AS SPHERES OF LIGHT, WE OVERLAP, SOMETIMES BLENDING FOR A TIME AND OFTEN SPARKING ILLUMINATION IN EACH OTHER. WHAT YOU ADMIRE IN ANOTHER IS ALREADY LATENT WITHIN YOU, WAITING TO BE AWAKENED”
This description accompanies P.C.Turcyzn’s visionary abstract painting, ‘Resonance’. Ms. Turczyn is not only an accomplished painter, but she has taken on the task of exploring how art can be of service to evolution. She is deeply committed to using art as a tool for healing, and wants viewers to feel a sense of connection with the rest of the universe through her work.
I came upon Turczyn’s visionary work through a lead from my geometry teacher, Michael Schneider. He thought I would like her work, and he was right. Turczyn admits to using his book, A Beginner’s Guide to Constructing the Universe, as many artists do, “like a bible”.
USE OF THE GOLDEN PROPORTION TO PLOT THE SIZES OF THE CIRCLES GIVES A SENSE OF GROWTH AND ENDLESS EXPANSION.
As I clicked through her website I felt a sense of connection and excitement. I contacted Pam, and we became ‘Pen Pals’, finding cosmic synchronicity with each email volley. Like me, her creative toolbox includes sacred geometry, breath, sound, movement, and writing, and she also worked in commercial design. I worked as a graphic designer, she as a textile designer for 25 years designing printed fabrics, wallpapers and carpets for home furnishings.
Though I have not seen Turcyzn’s work “in person”, I responded to its luminescence. Turcyzn employs multiple layers of gold, aluminum, copper, graphite, mica, and resins in a modified Japanese lacquer technique. Additionally, she meticulously places pieces of abalone or obsidian on the ‘paintings.’ We chuckled about the “OCD” tendencies one must have to do this kind of work, and it is similar to working in mosaics.
TWIN CIRCLES OVERLAP TO CREATE THE VESICA PISCIS, BIRTH PORTAL FOR ALL CREATION. ENERGY RADIATES FROM THE CENTERS IN THE SAME GOLDEN PROPORTIONS AS IN “THE MONAD: ONENESS.”
I asked Pam how she differentiates her work to include the term “visionary”. It’s a distinction she feels strongly about, and her studio practice emerges from meditations, dreams and synchronicity related to a metaphysical theme.
“Even before I enter the studio, I usually have chosen a theme to work with, or it has chosen me. Sometimes it is a quality I would like to draw more deeply into my life, such as compassion or hope. In meditation , or other visioning practices, I find the energy signature of the theme in the form of a kinesthetic sense in my body, inaudible sound and imagery or color. The felt sense serves as a touchstone for the work that follows. If I am uncertain about my direction, I always return to those somatic cues and the energy signature of the theme.”
A FOREVER OPENING HEART CHAKRA
Most unusual, is Turczyn’s use of sound as another layer to the paintings. She infuses each painting with vibrational information at nearly every level, from toning with bells and bowls, to playing music, to structuring the water used to dilute the paints. Each level of vibrational information relates to the metaphysical theme of the painting. The use of sacred geometry, color, rhythm and guidance are synchronized and refined to express the kinesthetic sense of the painting’s theme. When all this aligns: “Then I know it is complete,” says Turczyn.
“I believe that everything carries a unique identifying vibration, somewhat like a genetic code…Quantum Theory posits that where we place our attention creates our reality, so my intention is to put people’s soul purpose into visual form. Artwork can align people with their higher intentions while bypassing the verbal centers of the brain. Iconic imagery triggers the energy signature of a mission statement without mental process. If people commit to “powering up” with the artwork, the effect becomes stronger over time.”
I like what Pam says about powering up. As my Mind’s Eye students will attest, one of the keys to making the mandalas is sharing the journey with others. Not the least of which, it is the art makers themselves who blossom in the process of paying attention to the divine imagination. It is the work of a lifetime to open to this channel of higher consciousness. Turcyzn’s art can surely point the way.
What amazing work! “Infinite Compassion” has a wonderful “illusion” (is it still an illusion if it’s true?) that the flower is petals are moving outward. This apparent movement so matches the meaning of a forever opening heart. I can really see the kinesthetic alignment. Beautiful!
This is great Lillian…thanks again or sharing…
yes! i had that feeling too when looking at it, this image really draws you in – and out – at the same time! And isn’t it that balance we seek?
I saw Turczyn’s work a little over a year ago at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. I spent some time alone with the work, experiencing their energies and those of the artist. It was amazing. See the work in person if you get the chance.
Thanks for visiting Fred, so great to have your feedback on the actual artwork. We are lucky enough to be able to see it all the way across the country via cyberspace, but standing in front of original art has no parallel. Pam’s work is so powerful, that even on my tiny laptop screen it still hums. I can imagine how fabulous it feels in person!
These are subtle, vivid, energetic art pieces. I love what you do with colors.
I had the good fortune to attend some workshops given by Pam during the summer of 2009 at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck,, NY.
She integrates hands-on artistic creation with meditation and ritual in a wonderful way!
