Krystyna Szadkowska | Being Embraced by Mother Earth

I am a Textile Artist, Mama and Yoga Teacher living in Montreal and dream of a more peaceful world, one breath at a time.

Vision of Peace – We are all connected on this planet, and peace amongst all of us seems like such an obvious necessity.  Yet, we find ourselves amidst so much turmoil, war, hatred, injustice, racism, greed, selfishness, cruelty.  One of the most simple way out of so much of the negativity of our current age is to feel connected again: to our own hearts, to fellow humans, to all beings, to nature, to Mother Earth… We all share this planet and need to treat her with respect, love and honour.  Find peace through feeling connection to our own heart, soul and to the heart and soul of Mother Earth … Peace & Blessings to all.

Being Embraced by Mother Earth (vision of peace) – embroidery, beadwork, love.  6”x6”

Chilean Embroiderer, Founder and Director of Rococo Embroidery School – Chile 

Vision of Peace – ‘Para mi la visión de paz es mi mar chileno, inmenso, profundo, abundante, pródigo, generoso, oscuro, sereno y convulsionado. Porque la paz nunca es enteramente serena ni eternamente pacífica. mi mar del Océano Pacífico es para mi “Mi visión de paz”.’ “To me, a vision of peace is my Chilean sea, immense, prodigal, generous, obscure, serene and convulsed.  Because Peace is never completely peaceful, my sea of the Pacific Ocean, is to me, my vision of peace.”

Artist, Odanak, Quebec | www.joyce-panadis.com

Vision of Peace – waking up one morning and seeing a pair of children’s mocassins made for my son by my mother, I felt great pride thinking of the Native American clothing taught from generation to generation and all the efforts and the love that was put into every details.  Under mocassins, a dress that is now about fifty years old, that my grandmother made for herself. The same dress, my roots, I’m wearing today, proudly thinking of my grandmother.

L'artiste est née en Pologne ou elle a terminé la Philologie Orientale à l'Université Jagiellonski à Cravovie.
Sa fascination pour les anciennes cultures est sa principale inspiration.

L’effet désiré je l'obtient grâce à la transformation des tissus et la superposition plusieurs couches des fin file croche,brodée et tissees
La série tridimensionnelle sur laquelle je travaille présentement est une évolution des travaux précédents. Je suis sortie du format traditionnel mais je cherche maintenant une forme différente " une tour" voilà le point de départ, symboliquement ca peut rappeler la tour de Babel , une cathédrale, ou bien la nature. J'essaie d'obtenir une solidité et une fragilité a la fois, la transparence produit des effets intéressants avec une luminosité qui transperce de l'intérieur.
J'utilise une divers matériaux , comme le tissu, le métal, et des recyclées de toutes sortes... La couleur est d'une importance fondamentale dans mes travaux.

Judith Brisson | At the Ocean – Mixed media

Vision of Peace - My vision of peace relates to my experience of peace, which has always been in my encounters with the natural world. When I have experienced trauma or pain, whether emotional or physical, I have always found my solace in relationship with the natural world. To sit amongst the trees in a forest, to hear the rush of water and smell the essences of plants on the wind: these experiences bring me closer to what it means to be a human being, at peace, an integral part of the natural world. Although these images do not refer directly to nature - they are in fact digital still-lifes which I have manipulated through a series of software applications - they nonetheless mimic nature, in their biomorphic forms, suggesting the microbiological origin of all life on our precious planet.

Artist from Abenaki nation, Odanak, QC

Vision of Peace – Laid upon my red sacred cloth, I have included the objects that bring the meaning of peace to my life.  Feeling the sounds of the heartbeat of the drum gives a peaceful serenity to one’s soul.  The peace pipe used in many of our sacred ceremonies brings privilege of the great spirit of the people.  The brilliance of beads are the interconnection of the beauty of the world.  In my work of art, I do paintings, sculptures, beading, basket weaving and I’m in the process of finishing a book on a legend entitled Wdaskwin.

Kalynn Sinnamon | Welling Up; Understanding

An artist and ally who explores the multidimensional relationship between Canadians and First Nations through knowledge and understanding.

Vision of Peace – Many “settler” Canadians are afraid of sharing the burden of truth and reconciliation.  They argue that transgressions of past generations should not be theirs to bear but through ignorance and lies the truth history is hidden and Canadians approach First Nations with fear and confusion because we do not understand, it is imperative that we begin to listen to the stories that are being told, acknowledge the truth and make steps to reconcile our relationship.  It begins with ordinary Canadians to match the courage shown to us to bear the burden of the truth, and to look at our indigenous neighbours and acknowledge them and to respect them because, ultimately we are all Canadians and we all deserve respect, dignity and equality. We are all one.
