The part of J.Genevieve's work that is centered in the spirit of abstraction and wild, ethereal sense usually strikes in the kitchen, on the living room floor or weaving in and out of every day rhythms of every day life. The moment where body and spirit meet - the real of it, the mundane - is where the magic is. It's the space we typically won't stay still or silent long enough in to see the wonder that's waiting for us there. In her spirit series, J.Genevieve brings these moments and visuals to the surface to explore, often pairing the words prompted by the feel of the moment.
you are looking for
is in the mess in your kitchen.
The magic of the mundane is that it is the moment when body and spirit meet.
If you blink
or worst of all
allow another spirit to inhabit you other than your own
you will miss it
they will always be there for you.
