Welcome to a place where Metaphysics and Art intersect.
In a recent drawing series, Julia Tiffin has created a synthesis between art and metaphysics. Drawings with hands are loaded with metaphysical symbols and references.
As part of her process of working with history, time and evolution over the course of time, she has reached back into her own history and looked at drawings done at the inception of her art career and brought them into her current world of metaphysics. Her great passion of leading others to find the gold within (a concept from Alchemy) involves finding that which lights your heart on fire to truly find yourself.
These drawings are really about a path of return (to yourself) that all humans need to make, and the clues as to what lights up your soul are often found in your earlier years. These original drawings from 1995 are infused with a soul on fire and are now finding their place in 2021 as they are blended with photographic elements (photography meaning drawing with light) and sacred geometry. These images are intended to work in a similar way to some of the images from Alchemy from around the 16th century, where there were hidden clues in the images that could open important gateways in the soul by using sacred geometry and references to the metaphysics of creation.
This work is very different to Julia’s contemporary art background in that, instead of producing installations intended for the hallowed halls of art in museums and galleries, this work consists of a series of prints that are intended for the personal space of individuals to assist with the journey of transformation on a daily basis. This work is intended to hang on the halls of homes & everyday spaces to support a journey back to Body, Soul & Spirit. Our visual landscape truely informs how we think and function, and having an image infused with the ancient language of transformation can open gates within you to assist in a personal awakening journey.
The use of hands is another theme that has informed Julia’s work, and the real significance of this became clarified through deeper metaphysical studies. All the power to transform your life truly lies in your hands: instead of being victims of circumstance, the hands remind you of your ability to create and to re-create your life in ways other sentient beings do not! The power of creation and re-creation humans hold in their hands is huge. These images are fused with this understanding that you hold this power in your hands, and all the elements & energies required to truly change your reality are held in your hands.
