Art Awakens.

08 November 2010, Victoria and Albert Museum, “Cameraless Photography” Exhibition. London, England

An awe-inspiring exhibition is daunting,  an invitation to breathe in greatness, the unforeseen bonus for the price of admission.  Some art simply paralyzes me.

Exhilaration, interwoven with tiny-yet-mighty threads of self-loathing, tugs at my sleeve, a patchwork smattering of intensity to cloud bliss.

Where have I been hiding out?  And when did my world view become such a narrow, defeatist’s playground?

Here in the dark, senses on high alert, I key into the lush works that are lit to pop out from another dimension.  I am slightly uncomfortable.  I have never been so confronted by the power of greatness.  I  forgot there are others here.  And now an artist is beside me in the darkness.  The whisper of her pencil tickles the paper, perhaps guided.


My name is Lauren Berley and I am a Certified Professional Coach. I am also a working contemporary artist. Film maker. Photojournalist. Writer. Small-scale farmer/farm stand artisan. And your kindred partner on the Gifted & Creative journey. I help Gifted and Creative people unblock pathways to creating their most meaningful lives. And my artwork expresses the sensations and yearnings from deep within my little seed of Spirit.
