The Leap from ‘Mi’ to”Fa’
paint, threads, crystals, chain, gold & copper leaf
If you sing the scale right now, I believe you will feel the the vibrational lift that occurs when the notes shift from ‘Mi’ (below the diaphragm) to ‘Fa’ (near your heart). This plate divides the skip in sound with a horizontal line.
The MI (lower) universe holds a swirl of folds that emphasizes the soft vulnerable belly; two white triangles painted in the center of the swirl take the viewer’s attention to the omphale. Outside the soft belly are more stable elements of the physical body, such as ribs, which are stitched onto the plate.
In the ‘Fa” (upper) universe is the gold and copper sun of our heart. Outside the circles of heart energy are shooting stars and the spits of fire and life that connect us to each other.
