For the last three years, director/producer Emmanuel Itier has been interviewing women around the globe about the state of the world and what we can do to save our planet and life as we know it. The consensus is that men and women need to use both the masculine and feminine sides of their natures and work together to shift the world towards a more balanced ethos.

FEMME is a daring undertaking, executive produced by Sharon Stone, that starts with the Goddess cultures and traces how the loss of the Sacred Feminine, the diminishment of women, the rise of patriarchy and the development of capitalism have affected our planet. It concludes that now is the time for women to step up and guide the way toward a world of caring economics that benefits everyone on the planet, not just men or a select group of elites.

Included are interviews with visionaries and scholars such as Jean Shinoda Bolen, Jean Houston, Marianne Williamson, Riane Eisler, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Gloria Steinem, Angela Davis, yogi Seane Corn, Rickie Lee Jones, shaman Sandra Ingerman, Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Shirin Ebadi, Mairead Maguide, Jody Williams, Celeste Yarnall, Barbara Lazaroff, Carole Wells, T.S. Wiley , Sharon Stone and many more.

FEMME was a huge success at the Awareness film festival and received a standing ovation by 800 women at a women’s conference in Aruba. Next screenings for FEMME  for the Spring 2013 season will be Palm Beach then Bermuda then Santa Barbara for a special U.N Association sponsored screening!

Butterfly Nebula ~ Study by Nazim Artist http://www.NazimArtist.com

Most artists do a study or “cartoon’ before they place their image on a large canvas. The detail that I use for this blog is from the final Butterfly Nebula which is 6 ft x 8 ft. The artwork developed and became the final painting which has been exhibited since September 2011 at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood CA. What does this ‘study’ say to you. It will be interesting to see what feelings these first images convey to you and how you express them and then see if your feelings expand when I post the final painting a bit later. Join in and share what it evokes in you.

The Art of Wellness ~ Butterfly Nebula and Power Animals

The Art of Wellness: Power Animals

by Celeste Yarnall, Ph.D

“Quantum Leap ~ Puma” Oil on Canvas, by Nazim Artist http://www.NazimArtist.com

What if art were not just something to look at but could offer the viewer a healthful experience? What if you could decorate your home with art work that could also clean the ambient air in your home or office environment of mold, fungus, odors and bacteria? Is is possible to combine a visual art with a true holistic experience? The answer is yes as these concepts and more have been created by a noted British artist who has developed a never been done before glazing process that actually offers these qualities to those who live with his art.

The Los Angeles exhibition, entitled Power Animals, by Nazim M. Nazim, the artist who has created this revolutionary concept, which opened at a celebratory reception which was held on September 2nd between was a smash. The exhibition as been on going ever since and will be coming to a close on June 18, 2012. The art exhibition is open to the public daily at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, which is located on the grounds of the Barnsdall Art Park, one of Los Angeles’ most beautiful art complexes. It sits on 11 acres in the Los Feliz/Hollywood area, in Southern California.

If you are not familiar with Barnsdall, this site was deeded to the city of Los Angeles in 1927 as a cultural art center. Today, it is home to the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Barnsdall Art Center, Junior Art Center, and Barnsdall Gallery Theatre where Nazim’s magnificent art is installed on both levels.

Barnsdall Art Park is operated jointly by the City of Los Angeles’ Recreation and Parks Department, the Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Department of General Services. The Theatre hosts myriad of cultural art events almost daily!

Nazim’s holistically glazed paintings are for a limited time still on view in the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre. They are truly in a class by themselves because of their originality and power but also because of this unique glazing process which is a first in the world of contemporary art. The age old adage, “Beauty is as beauty does” truly applies to these works of art.

Nazim’s paintings offer not just a visual experience to the viewer, but also a sensory vibration that alters the frequency around the paintings. This occurs because after Nazim’s application of his traditional art materials such as oils and acrylics, he includes a natural, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, GREEN compound of minerals in his final glaze. This glazing technique as the last step, on each painting, produces a continuous flow of far infra red (FIR) and healthy air anions or negatively charged ions (negative in this context produces a positive health benefit).

These negative ions or anions as they are called, do indeed, actually clean the air of mold, pollen, fungi, bacteria, and odors. The anions may also help improve the viewers concentration and awareness plus create a feeling of well being which has been likened to stepping outside after a thunderstorm when the air is clean and fresh — much like being near the ocean or walking in a rain forest.

Nazim’s passion for a healthy life style including, organic raw foods, exercise and multiple spiritual practices unites his love of contemporary art with his holistic ‘Art of Wellness,’ paradigm. This new technology in painting resonates between the sensory worlds of art and holistic healing on a mind, body, spirit level.

Viewers of Nazim’s art might just find themselves transformed visually by these energized artworks, be it in a gallery, office or in a private home.

Drawing and painting have always been the fundamental elements to this London born artist. Nazim’s artistic vision throughout the years has been inspired by an array of themes that vary according to the compulsion driving him to create a given piece of art work.

Nazim is an artist whose work is informed by the techniques of the old masters such as; Michelangelo, Rodin and Rubens. He conducts ongoing research within major museums and art galleries all over the world including: London’s Tate, National Galleries, British and Victoria and Albert Museums, Paris’ The Louvre, Muse D’Orsay, Muse Rodin, New York’s Metropolitan, Whitney, Guggenheim and Los Angeles’ LACMA and Getty Museums.

Nazim was awarded AIR status by the Florence Trust in 1995. He earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree with Distinction from Winchester School of Art in 1983-86. His earliest training was in 1981-82, completing a foundation course in Art and Design at Middlesex Polytechnic, London, UK. One of his original painting is included the current exhibtion of Pop Art at the Zimmer Children’s Museum at 6505 Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles, Proceeds from the sale of all art works in this exhibition go to the Zimmer. Nazim donates often to worthy causes around the world to help fund raising efforts and create awareness for charities.

Among the many themes which appeal to Nazim are myth, mysticism, and metaphysics which resonate with the subject matter of choice where Nazim can explore the visual harmonics which he as an artist can observe or imagine. His work visually captures the spirit and energy of the late 20th and early 21st century, by painting such subjects as mythology, wildlife, sports and performing arts. In the Nature Series, the Power Animals seem to have a human essence (a nod to Shamanic ritual and the poetic visions of such romantic mystics as Rumi, William Blake, Rilke, Octavio Paz and Ted Hughes). This unique glazing process seems to bring the subject matter even more to life and needs to be experienced in person to truly appreciate its unique holistic qualities.

Nazim is available for private and public commission, as well as murals for homes, offices and public spaces. He is also a highly skilled graphic artist and can create very exciting logo’s that propel your business vision uniquely. Contact Nazim by email at Nazim@MoxxArt.com.

“If man understood that …

“If man understood that, ‘what I create has nothing to do with what anybody else is creating,’  then he wouldn’t be so afraid of what others are doing.”
~ Abraham

There is a wonderful competition going on right now for artists and collectors, it is called Art
Takes Times Square. My husband Nazim Artist is entered in the competition and he has been as of this morning ‘collected’ 149 times. We’d love to have you join in and click on this link and then click ‘collect me’ to help him have a shot at being part of an exhibition of art in Times Square. The fun part is that every time you ‘collect’ an artist you get to grow your own on line art collection and have a shot at winning a fabulous trip to NYC! There are about 2 weeks left in competition. I think you need to have a Facebook account to be part of this. Here is the link:  http://NazimArtist.artistswanted.org/atts2012

The quote above fits in beautifully with this competition as the way this has been set up, the artists can help each other and we can help ourselves by collecting them as much and as often as we would like, so we have the spirit that ‘Abraham’ shares with us, and that is that ‘what I create has nothing to do with what anybody else is creating’…there is no fear then to step out of safe little box into a sea of infinite possibilities and go for the big picture…or in Nazim’s case the BIG painting. His master work is the ‘Butterfly Nebula’  and this canvas is 6 ft. x 8 ft wide. You will see a detail of the painting here as my header on this blog, however the full image is available when you click on the above link to ‘collect’ him or at his website http://www.NazimArtist.com

What do you all think of this competition AND have you entered yet? Remember we all have to ‘play’ to ‘win and this game is free to play!’ I look forward to your comments!
