November-December 2018: Deborah Milton, The Many Faces of Gaia
Artist's reception at 11 am Sunday, November 11, during coffee hour
Gaia, a Goddess from Greek mythology, birthed Earth from her creative exuberance and found beauty reflected everywhere, even in chaos. Gaia knew everything to be connected to a single web of vitality and thus it was no surprise that in the 1970s, scientist James Lovelock “renamed” Earth as Gaia to highlight his discovery that Earth is a living, self-regulating being.
Since I believe this to be true, I paint – and write – to express my vision of humanity being aware of the immensity of the universe, and recognizing our dependence on our galaxy and planetary home. I want to inspire humans to evolve toward becoming a restorative species, nurturing the living system, rather than destroying it.
Gaia, for me, is synonymous with Creator, God, the Great Mystery, the ineffable Source, so I paint to articulate my soul’s longing to belong to a species who lives in awe and gratitude for this miracle called life.
May these paintings and words be an expressive prayer revealing the sacred interdependency between us humans and the ALL of IT.
