Art is dimensional. It is interpretive to some, and it comes to life for others. They say art is good for the soul because of its power to influence one’s heart and mind. Art, as they say, becomes a piece of you, it is part of your life’s journey, and it becomes a driving force in your experiences throughout life.
What then can be said for a piece of art that is a microcosm of life, a living piece that has its own personality, its own identity, and is already on its own journey? How would an art cognoscenti interpret or review it? Would it be considered good? Would it even be considered art?
Moreover, what if you combine all the natural materials associated with art with actual life, something that is living, it’s growing, its makeup is a community of life simultaneously living with you in cohabitation? Ultimately, something that lives off you as much as you live off it?
All of these questions are generated from the brilliant work of an artist with extensive talent, Ashley Lieber. Ashley uses mosses and other living plants to create pieces of art that beautifully “light” up any room. Ashley Lieber’s work often merges ideas from the field of Ecopsychology; if we are to be mentally and physically healthy and sustained, so must the health of the planet. Ashley’s “art”, no her “creations” have energy, vision and shear “enlightening” imagination. Her work can only be described as a reflective experience upon the cohabitation of all life.
Rejuvenation and the power expressed by art is more than expressed through her work – it lives through her work. Her creativity has no bounds and takes the physical living world and joins it with the emotional world of personal expressionism. Ashley Lieber features work of excitement, splendor, and of revolutionary essence. She builds life out of life! She beautifully and brilliantly captures the idea of being one with the environment and one with your immediate surroundings. Her work, as well as her personality are intoxicating and will capture your imagination, creativity, and your heart, soul and mind.
To end, is living art the new standard of healthy living? Is this what they say when one learns to live beautifully? Or, is it simply, “The Art of Living Well?” Essentia looks forward to creating a spellbinding and unique partnership with Ashley, showcasing the newest interpretation of living art.
