Ava Avione aka Moma De Louvre was born Pamela Jeanne Weston in 1942. She resided in the Boston environs attending Derby Academy and Thayer Academy. At 18 she married astrophysicist Brownlee Warren Gauld, known for his contributions to the Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter Missions. He was an astrophysicist at the Lawrence Radiation Lab in Berkeley and for 40 years at Cal Tech in Pasadena. Ava and Brownlee moved to Berkeley, CA in the 60’s. Brownlee gave Ava her freedom to pursue her passions ten years later. They had a son in 1966, Alexander Weston Gauld, now an attorney in San Francisco. Ava attended UCB Berkeley in the 60’s and graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from the U. of Oregon in 1972. She produced in the field of Architecture from the 60’s through the 80’s creating concept designs for hundreds of large commercial projects while pursuing with passion her art career. Avione started painting while still a child at 3 years old, following visions that continued all her life. She created an art movement called Multidimensional Expressionism in the 60’s, coining the phrase “Vibratory Art” and continued, as a figure painter, to explore these energies lifelong. Ava combined the best pigments available with her own archival extenders and binders enabling her to create with pure color. She is best known for her 4’ by 8’ canvases depicting multidimensional beings. 150 of these masterworks are currently on display at her “Living Museum” in Northern CA. Ava Created 80 of these “Living Museums” in 80 countries as well as many in the United States as an example to artists to found their own systems of creation, showings, and marketing as most Museums can house less than .001 percent of artists’ works. As a result, a first, her Artwork has generated millions of dollars in revenues, financing many projects and charitable donations. Ava is one of the most prolific and valued artists in the world today. Her work is collected by many notable people, museums, and corporations. In addition 5,000 sq. ft. of archives are available for viewing at her “Living Museum”.
Ava Avione wrote several books including her favorites “Ava’s Song of God”, “1001 Nights”, “A Kiss to Love”, and “Architecture of the Future, Concept Design for a New Age”.

Ava’s bio by Lenedra Carroll of Artists Advance
B.I.O. Vital Statistics
GENRE: Visual Artist. MEDIUM: Painting. STYLE: Ava, a master artist, explores art in many diverse styles from realistic to abstract to dimensional expressionism...in all forms of expressing energies. FROM: Boston, MA. Now calls San Francisco and San Diego, CA, home. EXPERIENCE: 50 years of prolific creativity. AWARDS: Recent recipient of the Artist Advance Main Stage National Treasure Award which highlights less known artists whose mastery, artistic gift and careers of 40 years or more are of such quality that they deserve high praise and acclaim.. WELL-EDUCATED: Originally known as Pamela Jeanne Weston, Ava attended University California, Berkeley, and received a Bachelors and Masters in Architecture from the University of Oregon. She has created and helped execute many revolutionary concept designs in architecture including resorts, temples, commercial projects, and shopping centers worldwide..
Noteworthy: Has artworks in over 80 museums world wide, numerous private collections and in over one hundred major corporations
Artist, architect, pilot, poet, and humanitarian, Ava is a Renaissance woman. Exuberant and sharp-minded, she is deeply spiritually connected to life and to her art. Her career spans nearly fifty years, covering the globe, and her works are in numerous museums and private collections. Yet she is less well known to the general public because her methods have taken her primarily outside the conventional art world.
I first met Ava in 2005 when on a road trip with my friend Rand. Returning across the desert to San Diego, CA, he spontaneously called a friend of his about swinging by to stay a night with her. And so I met Ava in her current Production Retreat estate in northeastern San Diego County. Surrounded by 750 acres of beautiful park lands, the majestic home was built but never inhabited by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Ava had filled most of the rooms with her breath-taking works in progress. What an amazing discovery Ava was! On canvases eight feet tall and 4 feet wide, the energy and color of the pieces literally vibrated with life and form. I was completely pulled into these vital celebratory pieces. Then, looking through the numerous volumes of documenting portfolios, I was stunned by the scope and reach of her work over time. Richard Frey ISA - a highly acclaimed art appraiser - said it well, “Whether painting the unknown or the known there are the elements of the depths of insight, perception and skill that makes Ava a Master Artist.”
Ava's life story, if available in a book, would inspire artists everywhere to not simply make art, but to truly live a successful creative life. One of her missions has been to change the way artists fit into the world economy. She has been able to blend her passion with her creativity to work and live as an artist without being limited by the capricious currents of the system. She has invented unique methods of producing and exhibiting, unique forms of exchange and currency in art, and unique ways of connecting to audiences in countries around the world.
Her paintings have diversely graced many venues from the billboards on Sunset Strip in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, to the Library of Alexandria in Egypt. They have been traded for gemstones, homes, even a Swedish airline! Her studios - Living Museums as she calls them - are frequently hives of creativity. She has often worked in enormous warehouses with over a hundred apprentices. On one occasion, Ava created thousands of pieces in a deserted palace in the jungle of Thailand, shipping two full containers of art back to the USA. She lived in the penthouse of a San Diego high rise for two years, using the entirety two lower floors for her studios and displaying one thousand paintings in both towers. She has been the sole occupant of many vacant high-rises where she used numerous floors for her studio and the elevators for paint supply stations that moved easily between floors. In eight separate locations in Dallas she created an impressive body of work, holding a grand finale event simultaneously at all eight areas, featuring not only her work but local musicians and performers as well...thousands attended. Stomp brought their Broadway show to one of those events. In a huge Masonic Temple in Vallejo, CA she painted prodigiously, holding open houses for simultaneous art and musical events on the weekend...it was a Bay area happening. She has taken possession of hundreds of thousands of square feet of shopping malls, churches, business buildings, and large homes, always creating impressive series of art, finishing with large scale event shows at the locations, and then moving on. In the process Ava has assisted thousands of artists to develop innovative careers, following her personal commitment to help artists expand their understanding of how they develop their careers. No bio begins to briefly summarize the life and work of this great painter.
Ava’s award has included a full career and portfolio review (a 50 year career that spends the globe, and many many thousands of paintings), brainstorming on her next phase, frequent contact and encouragement, help pulling her story together, introductions to people and situations that will benefit her career and sales, and general cheerleading. We are currently completing a book of three hundred paintings with documentation and appraisals, many in the million dollar range.
This artist is so prolific as well as so creative in approach to her career that it is difficult to grasp fully without witnessing her studio, portfolios, and energy first hand. Beyond prolific, Ava simply is creativity. She is also generous and open-hearted, professional, fun, always surprising and a constant student (recently she completed a year of study to learn computer encoding, website building and many other tech based skills). Many well-known figures such as Madonna, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Patti Labelle have admired and collected her work. Her paintings have traded on the New York Stock Exchange and are always created and shown in incredibly innovative ways. To get a sense of some of her methods for creating opportunities check her many websites and Google videos.

Ava has created many books, novels, screenplays and poems… one of her favorite poems is “Heart of the Mystic”… this energy is at the heart of her paintings.
Introduction to the Paintings:
The Heart of the Mystic…ava 2006
I hear the heartbeat of the Universe in all things live and unseen
Pulsing with the hands of futures
Circling through the mists of creative imagination’s
Vast charts of knowing…
A contentment, a peace from which all of my wanderings create…
Worlds within worlds overlapping with the oceans of soundless
Depths of wonder that my imaginings only tap but a small note.
It is these that keep life alive in its discovery of the jeweled pearl
A deciphering of cognition
That only the fragments of jeweled light can give birth…
A magical Universe of color and patternization that
Wings its way through a timeless body of light
In its omnificent spirals of creations glow.
A world of endless enticement to the wonder of creation
A place of beauty seen in every element,
Each child’s delicious dish of discovery…
Beauty so intense that can only be described by
Endless states of bliss…
By the unconquered heart of the journey through life and death
With full memory of all that is occurring… Love
The road glows with live jewels as they grow…
An adventure that confirms the magnetic attraction
To forces unseen but recognized by the mystic in us all.
It is these that fall from the paintbrush
As it is propelled by recognition
Of communications beyond any known forms of recognition.
No definitions of limitations are there… constraint
And limitation are freed from their forgetfulness…
All remembering the poetry of their connection..
Galactic languages become everyday song as the borders of
Communications are expanded throughout all worlds of existence
A love song that is the pitch of existence and creation…
Each painting is born…
By Ava 2006
AVA THE ARTIST - PRESS RELEASE 2008
From Heart of the Mystic - Poem by Ava
“I hear the heartbeat of the Universe in all things live and unseen..Pulsing with the hands of futures
circling through the mists of creative imagination’s vast charts of knowing..” “A painting is born” Ava
Life is art and expressing it has been my job for 50 years
Ava was the honored recipient of the “National Treasure Award from Artists Advance 2008”
Ava the artist was born as Pamela Jeanne Weston and moved to Leucadia, California at the beginning of 2007 from Ramona, California where she had a beautiful 10,000 sq. ft. Living Museum for three years. The newly built estate with pools, fountains, 14 showrooms and guest quarters was located at 21445 San Vicente Dr., Ramona, CA high on a hilltop on 750 acres. During this time Ava created many masterpieces in the 4’ by 8’ format where they were shown as they were created. Many came to the “Living Museum” locally and from afar to partake of the process and see the completed results...all having fascinating experiences.. The paintings bespoke of the unknown and expressed themselves in a technique coined by Ava as “patternization as color” and “dimensional expressionism” with the themes of love and compassion. This Living Museum was and extension of more than eighty she has created here and aboad.
In 2006 Ava also created at the San Diego Multimedia Center where she studied computer graphics, multimedia, web design, video editing and other programs...Her works were shown at the San Diego Multimedia Center in 2006 and 2007 as well as solo shows at Kornel Shorle’s Pro Photo exhibition space in Santa Anna, CA and Art De Souls exhibition space in Irvine, CA. The exhibitions were over one year each and displayed over 150 of her 4’ by 8’ paintings simultaneously with thousands of visitors over this period of time. When her exhibits were over she chose many artists to replace herself and was the curator for these shows..Encouraging new artists in creation, publishing, and marketing.
In 2007 she moved her “Living Museum” to Leucadia, California on La Mesa Avenue. Here Ava created a book of record of 150 paintings with color plates, poetry, and appraisals by Larry Kirkwood a highly credentialed appraiser of fine arts from Palm Springs and owner of the Melei Museum of Fine Arts. This book is to circulate to auction houses to have the art sold in the contemporary genre... with the idea of artists being able to support themselves from their creations in their lifetime... Her spiritual themes introduced into the conventional art world markets have now the intention of being most desired.
In 2008 having fallen in love with area, Ava decided to stay and moved her “Living Museum” by invitation “as artist in residence” to the Leucadia artist’s Kirkos working art laboratory. One hundred fifty paintings are there now as well as a wide format printer and scanner to create giclees of Ava’s paintings and Kirkos’s environmental art. Kirkos had to cut a hole in the wall to get the printer and scanner inside. The paintings and giclees are being readied to be circulated in venues world wide.
Perhaps her works will show up on the beach gicleed onto waterproof canvas... time will tell...and as usual Ava is open to new venues to bring her art and inspiration into the community of Encinitas and beyond. Having enjoyed the latest Art and Garden Tour and being introduced to Leucadia and Encinitas artists has been her great pleasure.
In 2007 she backed the idea wholeheartedly of Artists United of San Diego which is now a thriving art community uniting all artists in the area and providing access to grants and synergistic working projects. It is run by Tami Barker and the site is www.artistsunitedsd.com.
Ava is continuing to think prolifically and her 45 foot semi trailers of art supplies are ready to be shared with the community. She travels with pure pigment and makes all her own paints, colors, extenders and binders. She has multitudinous painting techniques that she discovered and shares with all who come to her studios. Sometimes she has one hundred or more apprentices that can learn and experiment with her. “It would be wonderful to be settled and have a permanent “Living Museum School”.
Besides the themes of “dimensional expressionism” and “patternization as color” Ava does portraits of children, painting them from birth to maturity as a series. She begins with the child energy which becomes the true physical form and is able to project this throughout the life of the child to create mature portraits of the future. Seeing beauty project itself into the future is one of her delights. Some of her “Children’s Portrait Series” can be seen at the Private and spectacular David Kaplan Estate and Museum in Malibu, CA.

If you or someone you know is interested in assisting us in this endeavor, please contact us... Thank you Love and Light Donna Yemaya
The following is about the Artist: AVA, The Artist and Her Work AVA is a painter, poet, writer, concert pianist, architect, aviatrix, and renaissance woman. Born in 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts as Pamela Jeanne Weston, she is also known as Moma De Louvre although she currently signs her paintings as Ava. By choosing to detach from names to maneuver through energies easily, Ava lives her life birthing ideas with new identities.
Ava graduated from the University of Oregon Masters program in Architecture and did undergraduate work at Berkeley in Art and Architecture.
From 1964-1984 Ava created revolutionary architectural designs from magnificent palaces to soaring fabric roofed temples and commercial projects. Many have been aired on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Ava makes her statement in the reunification of art and architecture. The final statements are yet to come. Ava’s architecture is a magic gateway to the future.
Ava’s paintings are in the collections of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone, Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, The Vatican, Queen Elizabeth, Merrill-Lynch, Home Bank, United Arab Emerits, the King and Queen of Thailand, The Gandhi Trust, and the Golda Meir Foundation.
Ava continues her prodigious career. Her paintings range from light pastel iridescent angels that captivate everyone who sees them to highly sophisticated driving energy images that push the limits of abstract expressionism.
She has been involved and focused during her lifetime with expressing invisible energies through art.
Ava’s current paintings have deep and rich renaissance colors, being painted with true pigments rather than artists paints. The pigments reach to the bottom of the pool in every color combined with gold leafing, metallics, pearlescents, and ground jewels. The materials reflect the paintings multi dimensionally. The finishes are brilliant shiny mirror like lacquers steeping the viewer in the past of Rembrandt oils combined with the future of holographic illusions. The images are as varied and unexpected as life, expressing extremes from asceticism to fecundity. Her statements cover full range from spiritual realism to abstract emotion. The techniques are a complete color spectrum from focal geometrics to sumi gestures. Viewing the different periods of Ava’s work one is reminded of William Blake, Maxfield Parrish, Marc Chagall, Jackson Pollack, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Jean Miro, Claude Monet, Richard Diebenkorn, Goya, Turner, Paul Klee, Degas, Renoir, Pascal, Roualt, Kokashka, Michaelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Gaugin, De Kooning and M.C. Escher.
With an emphasis on her architectural drafting and rendering background, Ava has mastered the skills of artistry. A strength of knowingness has been forged, indicating a depth of dedication to her art and visions which she expresses with extreme determination. Each brush stroke reaches to the center of the earth and far into space. The viewer relaxes and becomes involved with the intricate strengths and energies. Leaving the space of Ava paintings, people feel expanded and lifted from their everyday world, having been taken somewhere they did not quite expect. Ava has exhibited in major museums, magazines, newspapers, concerts, and in television and computer media worldwide. Painting and opening her “Living Museums” from New York to California to Africa to India to South America to Canada to Europe. each location being an inspiration for a steeping of understanding of the forces she enjoys exploring.
Ava aka momadelouvre.’s web site http://www.momadelouvre.com archives her works from 1999 to 2004. Her Introduction is Perception and Art, The Heart a Can Opener for the Soul..
“Ava’s art is an ever changing process within ourselves... Many people come to the studios, museums, galleries, homes, web sites, videos, theaters and concert halls where the her art is shown. The ones who are to have the art are present... they look not with their eyes but with their energies of perception. They are seekers in the desire to know more and understand their hearts from the voice of compassion.... so when someone looks at a painting they do not possess the art but receive it like a breath.... when someone looks with their heart they see a transformation that can occur. This change brings them a step closer to the creator within themselves and the courage to follow that footstep. The world of preprograms drops for the time and a new doorway of perception opens into the world of the depths of compassion of the heart of life... Soon this voice is the one that is heard and the painting becomes an instrument for its voice a tongue of compassion that instigates revolution in the heart....Often people look at art for something that they like.... the things that one likes and dislikes are but a fragmentary illusion of the brain based upon precepts to hold the stationary viewpoints supported by the ego in place.... Ava's art is an ego basher and a connector to the desires of your soul which you can seldom recognize yourself. You can resonant with a painting but at the same time not really like it... this is puzzlement for some.... for others it is a gateway to a roller coaster ride to the seed of a peach...ie. the heart of the matter...a place that has not been truly felt for a long time... the memory of that place opens to receive a breath of love...the painting allows breathing in and breathing out the vibration of love harmonizing all incompatibilities to the frequency of pure inspiration, the place from which it was conceived. The scintillation of this movement towards the Logos of the Earth connects the viewer, receiver with all other life streams and planetary logos. This is the seed of creation.... where one can open the streams and visions of consciousness that give purpose and desire to life... this is a doorway, an access point, a portal from which the wellspring of all life and creation flows... it takes many forms....receiving these harmonies in art, poetry, and music is the purpose of Ava’s art...Yet it does not take the shape and form that one would expect... an Ava painting will change daily or moment by moment as it comes alive with special communications for you.
Change of Scene: People have come into the studios and run by the art in photographing it or in looking for a good deal....inevitably they call back that they have missed the point and just now gotten it.... so the art is open to the breath of all....others come in looking for new age angels and other symbols of love logic.. they will not find any recognizable forms to cling to even though Ava is primarily a realistic figure painter by choice. They will also come in looking for what was done last year... It is never the same... Even her realistic pieces carry the frequencies thus spoken...
So why should the art have a high evaluation with all this talk of love and compassion.... what should be valued more highly here?....surely not gold or dollars...each painting is worth forever in connection to the soul so any high dollar amount would be a bargain in the basement. There is a new definition to art for these are times to know and feel...to prompt the voice within that comes forth with a bellow of surprise for what can be.... The following
It is a time that the genius of creation be acknowledged during the lifetime of the visionary, mystic, and artist. A painting is judged by its depth of perception, its deliverence of the unknow, its path of creation to the future of humanity and its divine skill of execution. It asks that we do our best in vision now. As a support for this we have all the major art auction houses in the world making this occur simultaneously with this appraisal. If you would have invested in any Dali, Picasso, Kimpt, De Kooning, Warhol, Maxfield Parrish, and hundreds of other artists in the past years your fortune would be thousand fold. The Auction houses are making fortunes for living artists now that have that same potential as famous dead artists because technology is bolting time forward and the past is not the only god. Timelessnes has a new value.On the practical side the auction houses can not keep up with the old inventories as the art investors are demanding new product. The desire for knowledge, vision and inspiration is hungered for in this world and now has a premium price as would air, food, our earth and water. There are enough millionaires and billionaires who are in agreement with this concept who are desirously creating this reality. It is the beginning of the time that brilliant living artists are reoognized now and renumerated. Recently Sotheby’s Auction House sold many circa 1900 - 1960 paintings for over 100 Million Dollars each. This is a first in history. The same house also sold many contemporary artists that had been selling in the million dollar range for $10,000,000 per painting. Also a first in history. It is my opinion that the paintings that these appraisals address, after i have completed extensive due diligence and have reviewed other appraisals done over the last forty years for Ava Avione, aka Moma De Louvre and Pamela Jeanne Weston, will hold their value for certain and most likely increase ten to onehundred fold in the coming years. This is the prediciton and financial certianty that the Meili Museum Finc Art, Inc. has in this one of its most visionary and proficient artists of record. We are pleased and honored to have been chosen to expand the provence and archives of this artist.
Latest Interview among many..by Loren Lewison of Sacred Imagery.com
Ava Interview Questions
I’m situated in the backyard of renowned visionary landscape artist Kirk Van Allen, who has commandeered the local art scene by successfully executing an ongoing series of mandalic-shaped pictographs. These striking images are rendered on the wind-swept sands of Encinitas and Leucadia, California.
Kirkos, as he is best known, is well connected. As I visit with him, he makes a special point of introducing me to a close woman associate named Ava also known as Pamela Jeanne Weston – a very prolific and talented artist who also has received many accolades for her metaphysical notations. As I get to better know Ava, I discover that her love of painting is perfectly aligned with her vision of building cultures of peace and self-sustainability around the world. Ava is dedicating her life to pursuing this illustrious goal. The following interview is the result of her delightful and unassuming joyful focus on sharing a lifetime of masterful skills.
Viewing your paintings, upon first glance, what I really like about them is that though in some respects, they depict a certain adherence to well-defined, self-contained color, line and form, they also are very flowing and expansively captivating. Based on this, I’m reminded that our lives, though sometimes seeming to be very well defined, are really, in many respects, as novelist Henry Miller once uttered “an imponderable leap into the unknown”. Please comment on this phenomenon in relation to your life and artistic endeavors.
Having had lots of training in disciplines of architecture, drafting, realistic figure painting and in depth studies of fine arts techniques all my life I always utilized the left brain so to speak to communicate through the right brain.. so my only purpose in learning these techniques and studying these subjects was to let these mechanical instructions be junior to the communications that I received while painting.
The process of painting for me has always been to approach the canvases with an open mind and heart and allow an energy of dance like creation to flow through me directing the color of life. And by this I do not mean channeling in the new age term at all… it is a process that I can only describe as a divine dance that up close makes no images at all… sometimes I paint with my eyes shut and only look after an hour or two… these have become my best expression because my mind is not inventing cleverness… but my hearts eye opens to allow those energies unseen but felt to be expressed in a multilayered progression of geometries and organics in a form I call “patternization as color” or “dimensional expressionism.”
Here many layers of communications received invent the expression of an energy that I have not experienced before. Then I do many in this series of paintings until I understand the energies that have been communicated to me…so the process of painting becomes for me a book or tool of understanding…
Like life as is multidimensional - so is the painting…a form only emerges at the end to communicate here in this realm.
To those people who enter my studio and see this process they have incredible experiences communicated by the layers under the final one… each layer being a full expression of freedom that pops out to the viewer… others see only the final layer but pick up the underlying excitement…Some walk by and see nothing at all expecting a figure or a landscape or a portrait that does not exist so they see what is in their mind without being affected by the experience of the painting…
Sometimes you meet a person who understands what you say with every cell of their being… it is this that the paintings want to communicate to …This is a precious treasure… combining that which is unseen and unfelt into the dimensions of reception of perception and communication traversing faster than any known speeds… it is the frequency of love manifested in its myriad and unaccountable forms of dimensional compassion… a gift that is received at every moment or perhaps for some just at birth and death… it is this moment that I try to live in the paintings and life always..
For every moment of life whether painting, writing, or living is a step welcoming the unknown and treasuring its communication to your heart and soul...In a more specific answer to the reference of Henry Miller… I feel that he esoterically jumped into the unknown… with the painting there is no esoteric but a divine dance of communication with the unknown from the heart of all beingness..
“And then Again” in another way expressed
Three – Ava 2007
The forefront of the coming dawn dwarfs the realities of illusions unexpressed
Forfeited in your times of suffering no more
You curl around the fire breathing the change in the air
Hoping that no one will notice as you have no form today
Seldom is this the case of your desire is
The smoke cloud being not seen
In your hours of wondering the spheres where no life pretends to
They tell you not to wonder or wander from the path of the doing day
While your heart makes something of nothing in the airs breath that
Is giving your food to rest…
You wander into the forest of love to create again..
According to the Sufi saying: “it is a gift to be simple and free,” I’ve discovered that certain artists’ work appears rather static and constrained – particularly in the depiction of chosen subject matter. Since I’ve seen you boldly execute your canvases in a very spontaneous zen-like way, I know that you love the spontaneity of moment-to-moment self-discovery. In fact, I believe that your bold approach to executing your creations represents the freedom of being that you greatly cherish. Please elaborate.
Your questions are wonderful and elicit a deep response from me… Yes, the paintings are created in a very Zen like way… as each stroke, color or adherence to the canvas is like a sumi stoke…that recognizing the divine source and guidance of the universe in its power of love to transmit pure creation… a state of divinity surpassing even freedom…it is this transmission of pure creation that I most cherish…as you watch in nature its ability to change, adapt, and create with every form of life and death I am in constant awe and wonder… its persistence, its transitory delights, opening the door to wonder allows the human factor to disappear and become that which is pure creation… to say that any human understands fully the process of creation brings that person in touch with the force of it so they can express it in dance, music, film, painting, etc… or their chosen means…their admiration of this force of life of which they are a part but also the creation of its part…so multidimensional is all cause and effect that the paintings become that wonder… so grounding the communication of it to the earth and her species..and thus creating the energies of its exploration…painting for me is a language that I can communicate these explorations of all universes in this one… as the realms of creation are so beyond description that painting becomes a way of its language to give rise to its realities…
In another manner said… two… poem 2007
A wind of chance is yours in the making…
Hearing a chant to the wild of creation
Calling the form within you to awaken
The heralding of your heart…
Information gone in the dust of a whisper
Who are the children of your wildest desires
To follow you wherever their wanderings take them
To connect with the knowing heart of hearts…
Go with them now
In life and longing to live for the wish to be..
You are forever free taking in the breath of beingness
In the joy that you expand forever
In the place of no time or space
Your soul soars to the breadth of its creation…
I am there with you always as you reach these pinnacles
Of delight while you pick a flower in the air…
A thought, a fragment, a slightest kiss and you
Know you were born for this moment only
To come back to the seat of your knowing..
Holding the hand of those that you love dearest
In the delight of the snow bound forests you
Find the melted heart…
Considering these times bringing forth many new opportunities to continue to learn and grow sustainably, including the ideal that metaphysically oriented art can serve as a viable canvas for enhanced self progression, what do you find most remarkable about the evolving creative process, and why?
If all beings in all universes only held in their hearts the love of all we would most likely not have to worry about sustainability…but since this earth seems to be a place that life streams learn, the earth sends out her love to these life streams as a being of ultimate compassion… it is emulation of this process that progresses us…She is a divine example of love and creation…being as she is our home so she should dwell innermost in our hearts…in my art I attempt to create a record of this love that creates in all of creation…and reflect it to all dimensions of being..the purpose of the art is really only this with all other explanation being secondary in nature…
“The Earth is Not Round” The Studio… Ava 2005
It would appear that
The earth is not round
This body is not what it seems to be
The earth is part of a whole whose form most can not yet see…
The earth was not flat in 1492 so one would surmise
It is not round in 2008
It is a part of a whole that we are beginning to see
And such is our lives….
The studio is no longer in a physical space but in a space
Of pure imagination and visualization with all senses…
Where the paintings are expressed with the tools of the hand
And with the tools of current technologies…way beyond the paintbrush…
Layers of imagery and sound as such that creation metamorphosis’s…
As Golden is the flux of the horns of the night
The physical body formed because some still need some pain
To make sensation real…here in a reality we do not quite connect to
We always reach for more…connection and the pain disappears
Enter into the fullness of being the whole and your imagination of love
Creates what is real….you accept this creation that the world disappears
The studio is the departure from worldly realities, agreements, and structures into the universes of freedom from whence we came…and where we really are…
Viewing your work is like peering into an ever-changing kaleidoscope. Be this as it may, please comment on how holistic vision, based on the theme of oneness, is the keynote theme for what may be termed “the scintillating afterculture”.
I believe you are asking me to comment on the future…having not heard that leading edge term before it delights me.. as for a culture of the future to be scintillating it must be choc o’ blanc full of the nature and manifestations of pure creation of love…
The form of our beingnes already manifested into the paintings of the future that I have left records of worldwide to be contemplated as a universal Akashic earth record so to speak…a kaleidoscope of choices so done… that we have wanted this to be and so it will be actualized as our process of being…to be dreamed of and heard as the song of songs of universes that seed and listen to the birth here..and thus its oneness of beauty forming structure…(this refers to the painting from the Galactic Goddess Series.. Beauty Forming Structure)
As each of us contemplates our future and all future we envisioned in the past a utopian dream for the earth… this is part of the dream that has led to “the scintillating afterculture”. So many sages, writers, novelists, science fiction writers, poets, filmmakers, have portended this… that the consensus consciousness will allow the universe to create it as its own being…
Change as a State of Being Ava 2008
Enter into the realm of creation with me that I may be open to your heart
Without you to conjoin me where will be the light of the day…
As I look for it in the sound of a glimpse of a word or a note or a nod
Of recognition for what is really going on…
Here to help the day into night so only the stars exist in your heart and mine
To bring love to create the new beings of the day..
Enter the dream of divine freedom that ecstasy and bliss are but shadow
States of being as one goes on knowing
The path of recognition as the horse drives the carriage on into another
Civilization of chance to know how to balance the power of this time again…
How can the universe have such patience and persistence to create on
All levels for an awareness to occur for its life streams…
As the mother of this and each child, her birth of a new star
Prods her patience on…as her energies seems limitless in the birth
Of her new being she hopes for creation to occur in endless streams of joy
The wonder of all this beingness is food enough to keep one in bliss
As resistance comes in non welcoming of the path of light..
How many hands can you hold to the light… a million or more
Will be but a tiny dot in the glimpse of the whole which one will
See in their states of being now…as the beauty of the dream
Is a complete canvas to the unknown in its record of time as the
Akashic records change with each perception of such… is the response
Of the universe to your heart…
The slightest leaning to the knowledge that is there is a leap of creation
In your directions attention
And your whole reality changes that fast…
You know not that which you were as it seems a stranger to you still
In each moment of knowledge that you complete yourself as another..…
Many global villagers are deeply moved by visiting various nature sanctuaries that exude marvelous inspirational qualities. Yet, many of these so-called “power spots” are subject to both social and ecological degradation if they aren’t sufficiently recognized and cared for. From your perspective, what can be done to better protect these sacred resources?
Already education is changing in the schools regarding this.. teaching wholeness and sacredness to our children who have to care for the resources here. The revamping of the whole educational system into a synchronistic spiritual and physical harmony… a world culture of recognition of the earth as our home and our beingness of growth… that the shaman in all of us has to be fully born in this leg of the next million year or so journey…if the earth has the patience for this… but she must progress to her star of her own sun and will do so no matter what as it seems to me that nature wills her to be this… or its own form of her…
My role in this with the art I have deeply contemplated by traveling to over eighty countries in the world and painting there for extended periods where all time seems to stop… and thus enabling the leaving of records and archives of paintings in each country… with a date on each communication time capsule in the caring of a person or persons of that country… some to be opened in 10 years, 20, 30, 50, 100, 1000, 20,000, etc… and on in my wish for the persistence of the earth and her inhabitants to continue their spiritual growth here…these messages in color and energy express that which is to be released at that time… it has been part of my work here to communicate to the future…. I see no countries now, no borders, no strife, but a world where all are dedicated to furthering the spiritual soul of their partners here…partners being all beings on the planet…
Homage to our Earth Ava 2008 (Chilean disaster)
My heartstrings go into the universes of love where
All intelligence manifests by the gentle wind of chance
We find the day of enlightenment for that second choice we can be
A minute of life and death and we are thankful for the notice of the soul and then Back home in regular time we notice not again…
Be patient with each one you meet that they may be your gift for the day…
Let them know they are precious to you and every moment is in your soul…
Love that which is unlovable and stretch with the bark of the trees and see
The fish in the sea and that they roam freely seeking wonder…
It appears that all animals have more intelligence than human animals in the night or day… as they seem at least in attunement to the earth listening to her
Heartbeat and moving in rhythms set for them in times being..
Hear the earth as she expresses displeasure as a warning with her storms of protest now and growing stronger…
As we listen only to the wind of our own needs and voices poorly guided by Influence of power…
Remember at least Atlantis and Lemuria and all cultures before that ran with
The balance of power and address that which needs to change in your own life…
A promontory from which we can see…
Dissect your soul into its necessities and pray upon creations love for the Guidance of your day…
My prayers are with the earth as her logos expresses itself in her divine poetry
Of her existence and her sorrow…So many times each day she cries out over
The surface of her scarred face to express forces that must be released to keep
Balance with her nature…
A warning that a tribal state is all that she may hold in her growing into a star…as She reaches to the sun and moon for help… knowing they have been her also…
They pull and guide her into a new time for existence and her burden to be lifted
So her potential can be made…
For a life stream to blot out such a brilliant garden
Seems an injustice in the universe that is more than all inescapably huge with Energies that one planet is not deemed an importance…
The seeds of the earth are in all universes and throughout all times places and Not…As we must separate from our mother we need to nurture her in her stillness and love…in all her forms that we come to know as we change…
I understand that you are now in the process of synthesizing your efforts to create special exhibition spaces to showcase your work and possibly that of other artists. Please provide more details.
As a life journey in the small way I have wished to help with the languages that go beyond language of the heart…I have traveled following these heartstrings listening with the ears hopefully open to the heartbeat of the universe of love… intuition being the guiding force… visiting and working with peoples of all cultures of the world as well as here in the United States… I listen where to go and follow that… then manifested is:
To work with lepers in India,
To work with Chinese prisoners in Goolangs in the Northern Desert Steppes…that never defrost - where a traffic ticket means a life of imprisonment…
To children in Orphanages…
To people in insane asylums…where the suffering of humanity is tantamount to outrage.
To prisons where criminals dream of freedom while they murder their man…
To Hollywood studios where the images of the future are the hell to be abandoned…
To the places on the planet where suffering is the most at that time…...
To large empty spaces where there is no human cry…but a tower to communicate and receive communication from an intricate and myriad universe that enfolds one in bliss. A new kind of times temple with no special interests. These have been many empty high-rises across the land that have been available for these resonant frequencies… that give energies to sustain the frequencies of bliss, ecstasy, love and compassion…sounding boards to all of nature with the art being there as one of the languages of depiction.. with the poetry and the music.. exultation, an inspiration, a creation of the process of love beaming multidimensionally..
To warehouses of 50 to 350 thousand square feet with apprentices to be enjoined in the language of love… with the brush holding the sumi hand..of many cultures of people that arrive synchronistically..
To living under a tree in India in a village square on a rope bed… with paints all around the square with the merchants and villagers joining the creation in harmony… with even the launderers in India at the Ganges washing the cloth that the paintings embellish…
To beautiful palaces in remote reaches of the earth that have been abandoned by times changes…creating alone again with the vistas of time present, past and future as their partial palettes… paints coming from pigments harvested in flowers of old with old alchemies and formulas…natural from the earth.. and papers made from cotton woven by hand in the fields surrounding…
To factory spaces set up for producing the art in quantity to reach every being on the planet at some time…
To Corporations where the art is created and maintained…as a valuable asset that communicates to these realms the spirit of love and harmony and creation
The journey so amazing that life can not even begin to tell…so the now is at Kirko’s studio, laboratory, and workshop in Encinitas.. that I heard the call to on the beach while working on my computer… and here working with all the artists in the area for the first time with regular venues…and planning a synergy of art and environmental art with Kirkos.. with the large format printer that went through a hole in his wall so waterproof paintings could be printed that will go in the middle of his beautiful and inspirational sand geometrics…another kind of beacon…a voice over the oceans in the meeting of sea, air, fire, and water..
Where the next manifestation will be you will be the first to learn as the journey progresses only to stop seemingly at death..whose boundaries are broken in solving the perplexities of the human heart… to where I am wanted and needed…for a bit or forever…I put out the call…
I would like to create a foundation that perpetrates this work that has been such a seamless journey into a form that can be recognized by the planet as finally a stable system… am working on visualizing the form that this takes…any saying that this is it seems to limit the form of being that can occur, with consideration that all energies and funds necessary to create this persistence will emerge as they have in the past… only now the heart is more open… so it should be a permanent and consistent beacon for the persistence of the art and its message to all borderless and without boundaries foundations… permeating in communication with nature herself..
Inspiration to Create
Memorable is the sound of your flowing robe as it encompasses
The galaxies of life creating with the sounds of expanding love
So it is its compassion to create all seeing eyes in all universes..
Your backpack goes to the mountain to take a look…
You are the seers of creation only to give pen to a peek…
A brush to expression…
A Color of choice in this vast array of creation that you as a being
The wrestling of the stars as they kiss each other to merge in explosion into
Another form of knowing… to find a balance to their imported power
From other worlds of becoming in harmony…
All their lives are a tribute to your knowing that
And expressing that in whatever system of parallel style
You should embark…
Non locational and non planetary am I
So I may see into these worlds of expression and welcome
What are some ways that art, and specifically your creations, can contribute to catalyzing meaningful growth and renewal?
I think I have addressed this in just about every other question…in part…creation itself catalyzes meaningful growth and renewal in all systems depending on intention and the intention of my work is painting as a spiritual and dimensional tool to communicate… not painting as an end as itself…it can be best expressed in the following manner:
Harmony of Universes Ava 2008
With all the universes of love in harmony
What will be created in this day of days…
When a thoughts bliss can be a star or an unfoldment of a new creation
Unknown even to those we called the gods…
With beings manifest of powers of live love we live on as many
As seen in are days…
We want and we give in our inwards and outwards breaths of the
Spirit of our lives as we seem a moment in the universe
While it is creating its song
To humble that which moments desire of fulfillment to be
An empty cup we can offer to each other…
A blank palette that we can create each desire for
The world to be such that suffering is no more
In a universe of understood love’s pattern beckoning to the doorstep
An offering that worlds exist in this way…
A time of bliss…
Where the song of freedom has been realized by all worlds which we enjoin…
And ours now being.. a thought that sung by us will be…
The nature of our existence… we can share our joy……
