(Art) The Earth Is My Sister by Jassy Watson

JW The earth is my sister

Artists are catalysts for change, and this “change” takes place when we feel deeply for a precious cause. I feel deeply for the earth and I feel that it is largely humanity’s disconnection from the earth and from the earth as mother that has contributed to the current state of not only the health of the earth body, but also the health of our bodies.

I imagine that a world filled with new images of earth as mother, inspired by those of the ancient past, has the power to insight deep change. Effectively, it is a re-newal, a re-membering and a re-imagining that is necessary if we want this earth to provide and nurture the generations to come.

‘The Earth is my Sister’ represents glorious abundance and is symbolic of my journey through the five elements, earth, air, fire, water and the ether. The snake in the tree and the pomegranate, not only ancient symbols of Gaia and the Goddess, but symbolic of my place in the turn of the wheel. The bees, birds and butterfly symbolise fertility and the flourishing of new life, but also contain deeper meanings relating to the many symbolic neolithic Minoan representations of the bee and bird goddesses and the ancient feminine symbol of the Labrys (Double Axe) as butterfly.

I am using my art as a healing force to heal the earth. Making art with intent to heal heals. As we heal ourselves we heal the Earth, and as we heal the Earth, we heal ourselves.
