IN MY BONES: A Visual Journal

Test-In My Bones_CoverIN MY BONES available @ CreateSpace eStore

Orly Avineri, the author of One Artist Journal and 14 Artist Journals opens her visual journal once again to express her belief in the boundlessness that comes from admitting incompleteness and ambivalence – in the sheer relief that comes from one’s willingness to exit the body in order to pour an intimate world onto pages of a visual journal and share it generously. All for the purpose of experiencing gentle journeys back to self and creating a true sense of belonging and connection.

14 Artist Journals is a wondrous grouping of journal pages from fourteen impassioned individuals. In it I reveal the delicate worlds of creative types for whom visual journaling had become a spiritual practice, an honest and raw expression of who they are. The book sustains my belief that all individuals have the capacity to make changes that are needed in their lives through the act of creating and to find new ways to advance their physical, emotional, and relational well-being. It makes known that art journaling is most definitely one such way.

I am endlessly grateful to the fourteen artists who agreed to be a part of this intricate tapestry of visual expression and humanity: Nathalie Nayer, Tracy V. Moore, Erin Faith Allen, Seth Apter, Juliana Coles, Maya Dunsky, Pnina Gold, Jesse Reno, Brian Kasstle, Hana Klos, Gil Avineri, Rachel Urista, Darcy Ruth Ritzau, and Vered Gersztenkorn.

One Artist Journal is based on Orly Avineri’s rich mixed-media imagery and intimate writings as they appear on her online visual journal http://www.oneartistjournal.com. In it she attempts to unify the self by expressing the intricacies of the nature within and around her, through the seamless blending of fine art, graphic design, and written language. Through her weekly blog posts, and her unique and transformative art journaling classes held both in the United States and abroad, and now through the culmination of the four year online collection, comes ‘One Artist Journal’ the book. She invites the viewer to derive simple enjoyment with the gentle turn of each page, while enticing them to dive deep into the processes of finding new and profound ways of becoming fearlessly creative.

I know from having experienced you as a teacher the love, dedication, and passion that you dedicate to your art. I know that as the art evolves, so does the soul. And I believe that this is true not only of the one that is in the midst of the creative process, but also of the lucky ones that are able to witness such a process.
Congratulations on publishing your book, and I cannot wait to see what else will come out of those hands of yours that are so attached to your sensitive heart and your sharp mind!
