Shelly Losee, Acrylic Painter, says:
“I think no matter what, whether I’m creating art for an A=rt Building/Community or not, I love creating art as a way to uplift the world. That will always be where my art takes me.”
Shelly Losee is a current WARM protegee who says she uses acrylic paints to illuminate the ecstatic poetry of masters like Hafiz of Shirazi, Jelaluddin Rumi, and Lalla Ded.
The painting below was inspired by an excerpt of the poem “Circles” by Hafiz:
The moon is most happy when it is full…
I see the beautiful curve of a pregnant belly
Shaped by a soul within,
And the Earth itself, And the planets and the Spheres-
I have gotten the hint:
There is something about circles
The Beloved likes.
“The idea is to transform building interiors into welcoming environments that reflect the value and diversity of the people who use them.
