Sacred geometry is seen as the foundation of reality, encompassing the universe, revealing the limitless mathematical patterned nature of creation. Repetition and complexity reflects nature’s perfect design, evoking a transcendental reference to a pure, perfect, and manifested order. Through pattern and geometric forms, Alea Torii uses order to control chaos, thus exhibiting the creative energies ...of the universe. Mathematical paradigms represent the immaterial, the spiritual, the illuminating beauty of creationism, therefore, refracting energy aesthetically ---and consciously.
The name Alea Torii refers to aleatoricism: alea, in Latin meaning, “to roll dice,” and torii referring to the traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance or vicinity of a Shinto shrine. It symbolically marks the transition from the ordinary to the sacred. It marks the journey through a metaphoric gate and entering a state of awareness, enlightenment, and flow. Taoist teachings led some Chinese artists to believe that chance images could be better explained as symbols to universally represent an artist's harmony with the cosmos. By grouping these esoteric symbols and arranging them dimensionally in her craft, the eye perceives depth within each work, as well as emitting vibrations through the use of lines. Indirect or implied shapes and forms are also created, framing or suggesting a direction of experience and/or perception. Certain framing draws you into vortexes of concentration points, enhancing and harmonizing the flow of energy within the frame.
Aleatoricism is the incorporation of chance into the process of creation. Intuitively, a random variable can be thought of as a quantity (or quality) whose value is not fixed, but which can take on different values, each of these values being unknown, either because the value has not yet occurred or because there is imperfect knowledge of this value. Alea Torii relates to luck, chance, or indeterminate elements. Chance is something that happens unpredictably without discernible human intention, yet this is what creates the most impact on the human experience, and more importantly ---the artistic experience. Whether it is aesthetics, music, or dance, Alea Torii merges random occurrence with conscious creation and the intended with the unintentional, to manifest the control of chaos—Ma’at. She ensures the aesthetic practice of a quick turnover, completely free hand, and with full concentration, to be the most important aspects of her craft.
By entering a state of flow, the subtle energies of the universe are picked up, and the human body is used as a vehicle to express such spirituality. Her material body also experiences a form of Cymatics due to concentration on musical vibrations. These energies are her source, it is the universal subconscious expressed through the individual mind’s eye --the universal intuitive knowledge shared by all. She has noticed the viewer tends to resonate more when flow is involved and there isn’t fragmented effort. So, by becoming an artistic alchemist, she transforms intuitive intent into physical manifestation, taking the viewer to dimensions of higher realizations, vibrations, frequencies, colors, and various expressions of energy.
A combination of Abstract Illusionism, Op Art, Abstract Expressionism, Psy Art, Neo-Dadaism, Surrealism, Cubism, and Pop Art, solidifies her creations into what she considers to be “Chakradelic Visionary Art,” transcending the physical world into abstract mystical themes. With an array of kaleidoscopic colors, psychotropic visions, and geometric hallucinations, Alea Torii’s craft expresses her worldview, one that can be identified and understood by virtually anyone.
