Nameless-An Exploration of Form is an art exhibition that is a full sensory experience of the collaborative and solo works of Lotus Heartsong and Mel Bikowski. The paintings recreate and echo the cycles of nature’s patterns and best represent the themes of deeper spirituality in emotional depth, wisdom, harmony, and balance. The mission and story of this exhibition communicates an open-ended question in remembrance of the psychological form of our truest nature as spiritual beings.

About Mel Bikowski:
Mel Bikowski is a self-taught artist that uses her intuition to build new perspectives and worlds that present an emotional depth and wisdom that is absent of ego. She spends most of her time painting in her studio space at Olly Olly in Old Town Fairfax, VA. The nature of Mel’s art often reflects symbolic, harmonizing, and expressionistic abstract shapes and colors that represent a harmonious connection between the deeper spiritual life of humanity and nature. Her main inspiration comes from long hikes through national parks with her family. She believes that if we accept the life, death, and rebirth cycles that are within our lives, we can also build realities that live up to our purist creative potential, which will allow ourselves to live a deep and authentic lifestyle that is harmonious with our spirit.

About Lotus Heartsong:
My creative process is intuitive and natural to me… sometimes starting with a paint splatter and articulating the patterns that I see while at other times drawing from forgotten internal languages and carrying on from there. I enjoy utilizing cultural, numerical, and sacred geometric symbolism to communicate with the viewer my own personal sense of harmony and balance.
