Glaswegian artist Rowan Rosie reveals themes of travel, vulnerability and femininity in her bright paintings as she surrenders to the creative process. We spoke about her art rituals; the importance of scent and smell, as well as movement and dance to anchor her in creative flow. Rowan walks us through her process including how she tackles the challenge of overworking a piece; and shares how her art affects her well-being.
Now more than ever, having a sacred space that allows us to escape from the stresses of life, the endless notifications that flood our screens and the noise of daily life is needed for our mental health and overall well-being. Here are 3 simple steps you can take to create your own sacred space at home to bring more peace, reflection and creativity to your life.
Alix de Bretagne creates conceptual art to experience the liberation that comes with self-expression; finding inspiration in the awareness and understanding of the human experience. Through his art, Alix shares his personal experiences with mental health in order to connect with others, whilst challenging stigmas around depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia and suicide. I ask Alix about his latest piece 'H8 Ball'; what art means to him; and what needs to change in society for people to feel more accepted and supported.
