Collection: MASTER PEACE

Solo Exhibition by Deborah Dicembre

27 May - 11 June 2024

'Master Peace’  -  Art is the great connector, which is why , I believe , it is so healing. 

This exhibit , ‘Master Peace’, is about alchemising our pain and primary wounds into peace and progress. If we do that in a healthy way, we can live in peace with ourselves and with others. When you’re comfortable in your own skin , you are more pleasant to be around. When you haven’t dealt with your wounds they bleed out over your life and over others.

As an abstract expressionist , I give shape , body , colour and form to ethereal or non bodied concepts such as emotions, energy , thoughts and experiences .

How we process our pain and primary wounds effects our ability to live in peace and in healthy relationship with ourselves and others.

The 3 big primary wounds are abandonment, betrayal and shame. The healing field for abandonment is commitment. The healing field for betrayal is loyalty . And the healing field for shame is honour. 

Addiction is a big topic and often the result these wounds as we seek to ease the pain. The opposite of addiction isn’t abstinence or even sobriety, it’s connection. When we become addicted to a substance, a behaviour or a person we are looking for connection but end up doing the opposite. We disconnect with ourselves. We abandon ourselves in search of something else. There are many ways to abandon yourself. Addiction to playing small, self medicating, not following your dreams and losing yourself in relationships.

Art is the great connector, which is why , I believe , it is so healing. The artist, connects to the materials and the canvas and that in turn connects to the collector . Colour and shape are healing. Gazing at the blue sky, a green field , clouds,  a sunrise or sunset evoke a sense of awe and wonder in the human soul. It’s not a coincidence that we seek nature and beauty, art , poetry and music when we are looking for a soul soothing experience or looking to express joy and happiness. 

It takes courage to heal. The healing is often more painful than the wounding . They don’t tell you that part. It took a lot of courage for me to put all these concepts on the paintings you see around you in this exhibit. The colours are mostly bold and bright, the gestural strokes powerful and liberated. The soothing blues and greens of , ‘I Always Knew I’d Love You ‘ , balances out the bright pinks and oranges of the other paintings like Brave and Don’t Tone Me Down.

I hope you find it uplifting and are able to ponder the meaning it has for you as you look over the landscape , the canvas if you will of your heart, your emotions, and where you find yourself in your healing journey.
