I have recently been included in two international websites:
Full Circle Project, a networking site connecting people to create a positive future. They used an image and some of my writing in the Art of Life section.
I was recently included in the international art website; Widewalls. It is a site that includes ground breaking artists and established, often famous artists. I was included in the Psychedelic Artists to alter Your Sound Mind. It includes a very nice little write up. It also shows beautiful Galleries all around the world.
Ted Wallace is an artist and a recently retired high school teacher who lives with his wife, Janet, on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake. Ted studied Art at the University of Calgary and graduated with a Bachelor of Education in 1972. For a 10 minute interview with the artist click here.
I am fortunate to be hitting the phase of my life where I get to spend more and more time in my studio. Our children are grown up, my wife, Janet is growing her weaving business, the house is finished and I am teaching adult courses part time. So I get to spend time painting my thoughts, my discoveries and my stories. This is a completely enriching experience where I intensely feel a full range of emotions. It is good work with continual rewards of exhilaration and a feeling of being deeply human. I offer these works as part of my process; nothing more, nothing less.
Some thoughts and quotes:
“I try to work from deeper experiences where thoughts and feelings are not yet bound in words, but sensed through inner vision and feeling.”
“When I draw and paint I feel like I am tuning into a story. I follow my fascinations; internal connections are made and ideas are explored.”
Some of the fascinations that I have recently explored are:
Everyday gods – the divinity of everyday tasks and processes such as work, relationships, raising children, play, serving, caring and enjoying it all.
Sheilds – shields as symbol gatherers giving strength to our relationship with the earth, each other and ourselves.
Creativity – our internal creator goes to work.
– creativity as a feminine power.
Transformation – everything is turning into the next thing, even me.
Celebration – remembering to experience the glory of it all.
“Despite a preoccupation with spirit and light, I seem to spend most of life grounded in everyday work and play. My joy is remembering the connection of these two aspects of life. Art is a great reminder.”
