Art and consciousness

Art To Your Inbox

“I subscribe and consider this a wonderful weekly form of both meditation and joy. Your weekly emails with links are like small vacations when we cannot travel physically. Thank you.”

Terry Price, writer and photographer

Great art tells a story, a story that tells us there is more than meets the eye. Through my years of teaching and studying works of art from the Western European tradition, many stimulating conversations and different ways of knowing have flourished. This has led me to replicating the seminar groups, gallery visits and study days into a forum where we can learn online while still connecting with each as we would in a classroom or gallery. By delivering art to your inbox, it allows you the comfort of being at home while still being able to engage with great works of art from around the world and join in on conversations and discussions with like-minded enthusiasts in our private facebook group.  

Slowing down and really taking time to engage with a work of art, gives you a chance to pause, absorb, reflect and appreciate in depth one great work of art at a time in the comfort of your own home. Broadening perceptions of art, beyond rational analysis, categories and styles, has proven to lower stress levels, increase creativity and effective action in the world. Art is for the senses, intellect and soul, and has the capacity open ways of knowing and seeing that have been lost or forgotten in our post modern age. 

"Mary does not ‘teach’ as such;  she introduces a painting (or an artist, or an idea) and then enters a process of mutual discovery as a co-explorer." Ms Veronica Bennetts 

Today, almost everyone has heard of the positive effects of yoga and meditation. But neuroscience and ancient teachings tell us that deep observation and appreciation of art is transformative for intellectual, emotional and spiritual awareness individually, societally and globally. It is even more vitally important for us today in our challenging times.

Through my experience of studying, researching and teaching traditional Art History I was always intrigued by the world and stories that art opened up. But I sensed something was missing, something that we had lost. The 'looking at art from a distance' approach meant that it remained as an object; devitalised and dead, something there for our inspection and criticism. But art, images, have a vitality. They are, as psychiatrist and thinker, Dr Iain McGilchrist writes, “more like people, living beings than objects”.

Art was never supposed to be interpreted only literally. This is a relatively recent inherited view. Art opened different ways of seeing and knowing that enabled us to better understand ourselves and our place in the world. Today, our times call for us to re-establish this vital and half- forgotten connection. Without it, we act half- hearted, lop-sided in our thinking, disembodied from ourselves and from the senses, imagination and heart.
