Rhythms: The Ocean Tides

by Lisa Cyr

The ocean tides flow in and out, creating a rhythm that beats in harmony with other natural elements. The musical orchestration of the sea creates sounds that encourage us to look inward, focusing on our innate sense of rhythm. Our breath, our beating heart and the blood that runs through our veins all work in tandem: a rhythmic dance that is uniquely our own.

Throughout the custom embossed, tactile painting, abstract waves organically flow rhythmically across the surface. To evoke the sandy texture of the shore, actual California beach sand was used in the embossing process using a handmade collagraph plate. The color palette, shimmery blues and golden tones, were abstracted from the colors seen in sea shells. Grinded by the waves to small sand particles, these bits of life long past remind us that everything is in a rhythmic process, constantly flowing in and out.

Let the rhythms of the ocean tides bring a sense of balance, harmony and stillness in your life.

The original art is part of a series of works called Mindscapes by Lisa L. Cyr

The visually-compelling, imaginative works of artist and author Lisa L. Cyr use symbolism, metaphor and allegory to stimulate curiosity, provoke thought and encourage further inspection. A poetic, rhythmic synthesis of drawing, painting, collage and assemblage, Cyr's visually tactile, mixed-media works are composed to collectively create a new reality with a more expressive and symbolic arrangement, transforming the ordinary to the extraordinary.

In Cyr’s world of the fantastic, the viewer is shown a portal into a highly imaginative, mystical realm where supernatural beings, winged guardians and underworld deities coalesce in magical, multilayered environments and dreamscapes. Within the artist’s personal narration, visual tales of quests to worlds unknown evoke transcendental experiences for those who are willing to enter into the pictorial drama. Through the multilayered narrative, we journey to a world beyond, where the awakened subconscious leaves the viewer spellbound and wanting more.

A graduate from The Massachusetts College of Art (BFA) and Syracuse University (MA), Cyr's artistic oeuvre has been exhibited in museums and galleries, including traveling shows with the Society of Illustrators of New York and Los Angeles. Her work has been featured in magazines, books and online, including numerous features in Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, Infected by Art, AcrylicWorks: The Best in Acrylic Painting and Incite: The Best in Mixed Media. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of American Illustration in New York City as well as in private collections.
