Meiun Caroline Maby, Dharma Artist

" art as dharma rain "

                ... is the mantra of the studio.

the act of painting is meditation in action, simply moved by the essence of love.

nature is her muse. 

the telluric force of the elements, that of the sea in particular, the sky and the light of the north mobilize her inspiration.

the animal world, the whisper of the stars and the song of the sacred speak directly to her great intuition and delight her taste for mystery.

" quae sursum volo videre "** : on raw canvas and paper – bare spaces of openness – her art unfolds in a mediumistic way.


drawing, painting, shodō, collage, writing, photography… in a dance, creative gestures alternate with sitting or contemplation.
