MidWinter Folk Arts Zine

MidWinter Folk Arts Zine

from 5.00

Nest & Tessellate is a poetic labor of love, a devotional practice. I am interested in exploring the connection between our experience of living within Nature as expressed through symbolic art forms throughout time. If you value this inquiry, you can contribute to further investigation by supporting the MidWinter Folk Arts Zine. You will be added to a special list of recipients who receive biannual updates on this work via a limited edition, signed and numbered art publication. I consider it my first mission to educate about lost traditions of visual folk magic. Second, to innovate new ways of applying these symbols that have relevance in today’s world.

Sigils, or symbols charged with intention, have a long history of use as agents of healing and protection. Collecting folk imagery from around South Minneapolis, I hope to draw attention to different folk art traditions, draw parallels between traditions, identify shared meanings and with the help of collaborators, construct a contemporary folk art language, rooted in the magic of this place and its people. The results of this inquiry are intended to act as a reference point, inspiring positive change through the intentional use of symbols or sigils. The goal, in short, is to create a magical folk art for our times.
