Works connect with healing energies and show the healing process for trauma, and abuse from patriarchy, and oppressive systems especially towards women, moving forward allowing the spirit to align towards healing wounds, clearing those emotions existing in the states of the mind, heart, body, and spirit in a plane of dimensional energy.
Energy exists visually using shapes, lines, healing colors, breakthroughs texts, and vibrations as a language empowering the self, and healing. This energy is portraits visuals seen in Bibi’s visions of real energy, healing energy through intuition, and meditations, transformed into inhabiting energy pieces. You can experience the energy through colors, and movements that have their own language, and interconnect within each piece. You can see energy fields, lines forming grids, pathways, or layers. Breakthrough texts are made of collage from acrylic unstretched painted canvas some born as energy lines strips, and others transformed to text, sometimes in colors when receiving energy, or in red connecting to generational wounds healing, cutting negative cords, clearing negative energy, and blockages from wounds with healing energy. Every color, every symbol has a meaning connected of how energy exists, and heals. Works usually contain unstretched painted canvas, stripes, shapes, grids, or texts as a collage.
