Exhibiting in the US and Crossing the Border with your Art

Exhibiting in the US and Crossing the Border with your Art

I recently exhibited my art in the US for my first solo show in Boulder Colorado. While I’ve been on road trips in the US many times, this was a first crossing the border with artwork in my van. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous.  The advice I got from artist colleagues was to ‘just say that you are going to show your art at a non-profit art event with a big smile. For me there is no way I could lie to a border officer. I feel guilty and worried when I have no reason to, it’s just the way they look at me and ask questions! So to...

What Are Your Artistic Influences?

What Are Your Artistic Influences?

I am often asked this question when I meet journalists, potential clients, or collectors. I used to be scared of this question because it was a matter that I had never really considered when venturing into my art career. For me the art is what emerged from ‘preparing the ground’: As a young adult I committed myself to live a life that is essentially focused on being vibrant, healthy, honest, present, kind and heart centered (well, I tried my best at it!). I believe that when anyone works on developing these qualities it gives...

Mystical Landscapes: A Revelation

Mystical Landscapes: A Revelation

I’ve been a professional artist for over 10 years now and this emerging period of my career has been mainly focused on ‘finding my family in the art world’. I’ve written a few articles on this process but the truth is that this search keeps unfolding. Earlier this year the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) put on an exhibition called Mystical Landscapes. I was already excited about the title but it became almost like a revelation to me when I heard  Katharine Lochnan, curator of the exhibition, talk on a CBC program...

Marilyn Hamilton, Founder of Integral City, Canada

Integral City is honored to sponsor the Brush for Change catalog [Solo exhibition in Boulder CO]. The moment I experienced Gaia’s art I felt a strong resonance with the Spirit of Integral City. I love the synchronicity of Gaia’s name and the Call for Integral City to respond to the injunction of James Lovelock (author of the Gaia hypothesis) to enable humans and our ‘human hives’ to act as Gaia’s Reflective Organs. Gaia Orion’s art so beautifully reflects the spirit at the heart of the four Voices of the Integral...

Barrett C. Brown, Managing Director, Apheno Advisor

Gaia Orion has clearly stepped aside to allow Consciousness, the Divine, to flow through her and embody this art. It graces us with transpersonal Love and visions of a flourishing Self, Society, and Nature that is our birthright. May her work, and Heart, continue to blaze a path forward for the liberation and transformation of all who are touched by it. Barrett C. Brown, Managing Director, Apheno...

Integral City: Sponsor of my Solo Show in Boulder, Colorado

I am thrilled to have Integral City as a sponsor of this catalog. Our work is intimately connected: having graduated as an architect I’ve studied urban planning and have always naturally recognized when cities are well thought out, evidently affecting the quality of lives and communities positively. The work of Marilyn Hamilton is truly aesthetic as it brings the intelligence of nature into the heart of the dialogue for building our cities of the future. When we talk so much about global ecology and sustainability it is an absolute necessity...

Shinzen Young, Author of The Science of Enlightenment, U.S.A.

Success with meditation will lead you to direct contact with a kind of Primordial Perfection — the expansion/contraction of pure space that precedes, follows, and pervades each ordinary experience of self and world. Some people call this the Source. Some people call it the True Self. Some people call it No Self. Some people call it Nature. The pinnacle of art, what Zeami called The Flower, is achieved when the portrayal of the Source is channeled directly from the Source. Gaia has been meditating assiduously for decades. Enjoy her...
