Block and Flow

Exhibition Plan

Imagine walking into an art exhibition and walking out with a map that shows you where you are in and out of balance in your own life.

This is the vision of Block and Flow

A sensual journey to find your creative mojo through the valley of the chakras.

 

I have completed 5 of the images in this series so far.  They have won 3 golds, and two silvers in the New Zealand Professional Photography Awards.  There are 16 images remaining to complete the series and my intent is to have them exhibition ready by the end of 2020.  Below are the completed images and the vision for the exhibition.

The Victim - Solar Plexus Chakra Diminished

Mandi Lynn, a Master Photographer with the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography is an internationally award winning photographer and stylist whose work has been featured in Vogue Italia and in International Photography Magazines. Her work has been features in exhibits… which makes her sound all posh and stuff but really she is just a cheeky, playful, down to earth farm girl who happens to be epic at turning peoples inner beauty into fine art.
Mandi’s goal is to give you an experience where you will have your eyes opened to your mojo, your spark, your secret sauce of awesomeness. She wants to help ignite a change in your life where you see how amazing you are right down to your core and cheer you on to start really bringing it out in the world. When that happens it is a beautiful thing to behold and it is why she does what she does.

The Addict

Base The Ungrounded The Grounded The Hoarder

 

The exhibition is made up of 7 three-sided pillars in a womb shape.  When you stand in the centre of the womb you can see the archetypes of all of the balanced states of each chakra.

However, if you step out of the womb and you walk in either direction around  you will see images that represent either the diminished energy state or the excessive energy state.

I will be creating three separate series with different tonal ranges.  The diminished, the balanced, and the excessive.  Below are the mood boards for each series.

Diminished Energy Palate

Circling the left side of the pillars will reflect a muted palate with the intent to show a loss of energy a loss of vibrancy.
