    ARTIST STATEMENT: “The experiences, creatures, music, visions and emotions of my life are fed as light into the kaleidoscope of my brain, shaken up, and end up spilling out the end of my paintbrush in the most intriguing forms! My creative expression is my meditation, sharing it with others fuels my elation. I encourage all beings to create and express themselves on a path to self knowledge and joy. Let us shape our own colorful, loving, thriving, collaborative reality and break from the normalcy that has been set before us. ” ~Kahili

Concord, An Art Opening: Artist Statement

Finding balance and harmony through intense transformation.
Butterfly and moth symbolize morphing from one phase to the next. Just like the moon, our constant cyclical evolution is always on the horizon. Our own thoughts and actions can enhance or stunt our progress, but the world keeps burning and turning. What will you do with the challenges (re: opportunities) that life presents? Will you fight it and prolong the inevitable or jump on a rocket to find the next sunrise? Will you dance and flow with the truth or let fear push you off a cliff?
Complementary colors bring light to these choices and the magic of working relationships. Focus on the small winged creatures bring awareness to the details of life around us every moment and the ability to rise above. Poems accompany each painting to offer an even deeper insight to my process and feelings while it was created.
Gratitude prevails to bring this personal series of my minds eye and human experience into the public eyes and ears. May your senses be stimulated and your perspectives expanded. With love- Kahili
