The artist relies on visionary revelations that point to the spiritual ideal beyond mundane perception. By externalizing these revealed symbols in art objects, the artist provides a crystallized passage back to the mystic visionary state.

the work of Terese Nielsen
The work of Terese Nielsen has captured the imagination of the gaming and comic book industry. Whether you're immersed in the beauty of "Stream of Life" or "Moonsprite," or the vast realms of Magic, The Gathering, you're sure to agree that you haven't been left untouched. She has made her place in the world of fantasy art, lurking in the upper echelons as one of the foremost female artists in the field, and has been honored in many volumes of Spectrum as well as other well-respected institutions.

Each year Terese brings more to delight and inspire, and we are incredibly delighted to help her reveal her latest project here on Every Day Original.
And now, revealing...

The Monk

by Terese Nielsen

Silence, stillness… words can never tell it. Powerful, the sharp edge of spirit refined into a blade of truth ready to defend beauty, yet not expecting to have to. Purity protects, unconsumed by fires that force laser focus on worlds within, exciting them to express in joy and service. Ever present, ever watching, his harmonies dancing amidst spheres… he awaits a Summons.

As with many of my paintings, this one “almost” came together by itself, as if it had been fully designed in some other realm, with my job just being to tune in and, like a midwife, deliver it bit by bit into this dimension.

I say that because once again, though I obviously started off with relevant elements that I wanted to build the visuals for Monk around (like the Chintamani and fire images), other symbols I stumbled across that “asked” to be a part of it after I’d already consummated the original design mysteriously fit like a planned overlay in perfect proportion to every other part. This is what makes the creative process truly magical at times.

And speaking of Magic… it just so happens that this painting is the first of over thirty new personal pieces that will be part of a Kickstarter I’m launching in May of 2018. Stay tuned! For updates and announcements on the project follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
