Color for Health

"Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment."

Claude Monet

What we see as color, the interaction of energy and matter, the visible spectrum of light, can have profound effects on our mood, physical health, and mental wellbeing.  Colors can heal on a spiritual level as well as a physical level.  Surrounding yourself with the energies of certain colors, such as a painted wall or works of art, can lift your mood, ignite optimism, and result in favorable physical health changes.

Chromotherapy (color therapy) is a centuries-old concept used successfully over many years and cultures.  Colors have symbolic meanings which are immediately recognized by our subconscious (though not all colors have the same meaning to all people and cultures).  Observing colors can invoke emotion and bring about positive changes in mind, body, and spirit. 

The following color properties are taken from Deep Trance Now.

 


RED

Healing properties: Brings warmth, energy and stimulation, therefore good for energy, fatigue, colds, chilly and passive people. Red energizes heart and blood circulation, it builds up the blood and heightens a low blood pressure. Energizes all organs and the senses hearing, smell, taste, vision and touch. Increases sexual desire and activity. Stimulates ovulation and menstruation. Never treat cancer with red, because this color will stimulate cell growth!

Red links with and stimulates the root chakra, at the base of the spine, causing the adrenal glands to release adrenalin. This results in greater strength. Red causes hemoglobin to multiply, thus increasing energy and raising body temperature. It is excellent for anemia and blood-related conditions. It loosens, opens up clogs, releases stiffness and constrictions. It is excellent for areas that have become stiffened or constricted.

Esoteric/magickal: Deities of love, passion, sexuality and war (to stimulate a healthy portion of assertiveness). Great energy, courage, will-power, determination, speed, assertiveness, aggression, masculinity, independence, physical strength, sports, competition, conflicts, health, sexual attraction and potency, love and passion, fertility.

Preference for red: Red is associated with passionate love, sex, great energy, impulse, action and stimulation, assertiveness and aggression, courage, strength and power, adventure, danger, warnings, revolt and revolution. Temperamental and ambitious people with a need for personal freedom.


ORANGE

Healing properties: Orange is warm, cheering, non-constricting. Orange has a freeing action upon the body and mind, relieving repressions. Orange shows new possibilities and other options in life. Stimulates creative thinking and enthusiasm, and helps assimilate new ideas.It is also helpful in dealing with excess sexual expression.

Preference for orange: Orange represents the warmth of the fire. It brings even more energy than yellow, celebration and great abundance, comfort, enjoyment of the senses. Warm, sociable, dynamic and independent people who dedicate themselves to whatever they do.


YELLOW

Healing properties: Yellow helps strengthen the nerves and the mind. It helps awaken mental inspiration and stimulates higher mentality. Thus, it is an excellent color for nervous or nerve-related conditions or ailments. It also energizes the muscles. Dark yellow soothes pains in the nerves (shooting pains)

Yellow can be used for conditions of the stomach, liver, and intestines. Speeds up the digestion and assimilation, and the stool.

It helps the pores of the skin and aids scarred tissue in healing itself.

Yellow links with and stimulates the solar plexus, or psychic center. It can be used for psychic burnout or other psychic-related conditions or ailments. Activates and cheers up depressed and melancholic people. Gives lust for life.

Green rings psychological and emotional harmony and balance.

These colors slow down an over-active heart; stimulate the spleen and the white blood cells (immunity). Bring sleep. Soothe mental and emotional stress. Decrease sexual activity. Decrease sensitivity to pain. They help in detoxification.

A longing to ascend and dissolve polarities (purple consists of the active red and passive blue), to improve the world. Reservation, mystery and dignity. Soft, sensitive people with often paranormal abilities.


Chromotherapy is not limited to single color use.  A carefully selected palette of several colors can be equally and more effective in aiding health.  Color can be easily applied with a selection of clothing or accessories and more strongly with a painted wall or room.  However, a convenient median is a thoughtful selection of artwork(s).  Art can be enjoyed casually in passing as well as more thoughtfully upon examining and even meditating on it.  Consider any artwork you have in your home or work space.  What draws you to it, and what emotions does it bring up for you?  In what ways can you use your current art or purchase new art to aid your health?

Multi-Paneled Artworks

As an artist I use nature-inspired artworks to bring beauty into this world, to heal myself and to inspire others to heal themselves. I choose nature because all elements of nature are unique. With no two trees, flowers or other natural elements being exactly alike I bring to light the intricate textures and details of my subjects. I deepen the notion of exceptional nature as a mirror of exceptional human nature, using nature as a catalyst to explore concepts of life and health. I frequently use multiple-panels as views alluding to the interconnectedness of all life on our planet. I use trees and flowers as peaceful symbols of life. Trees and flowers illustrate the passage of time and growth, taking on the appearance of decay in the winter and sprouting anew with the return of spring. In this way my artwork is an inspirational symbol of resurrection and healing. Nature exhibits a transitory beauty, an ephemeral symbol of the cycle of life, reminding viewers that life is meaningful and sacred.

Memento Mori

Memento Mori
2012
unique chromogenic photogram
90" x 90" (3 30" x 90" panels)


I received a grant from The Celebration Foundation to create Memeto Mori.

Memento Mori is a Latin phrase that translates to "Remember your mortality." The Memento is an artistic theme dating back to antiquity, and it refers to a genre of artworks that vary widely but which share a common purpose: to remind people of their mortality. More than a work of art, Memento Mori acts as a catalyst for the human imagination to engage with questions surrounding the nature of life and death; on the mortal constraints of all people, and the finite, fragile boundaries of the human body. 

The tree of life has been used as a symbol by all branches of human knowing. It emerges in various world theologies, mythologies, and philosophies; it concedes a mysterious reality alluding to the interconnectedness of all life on our planet, and provides a metaphor for our common, evolutionary ancestry. The tree exhibits a transitory beauty, an ephemeral symbol of mortality that engages the Earth as a living medium, and illustrates the passage of time. 

The triptych structure of Memento Mori deepens the symbolism of the tree itself— branches reaching to the sky, roots plunging deep in the earth, and a trunk planted firmly in between. The tree dwells in three worlds and offers a fragile link between heaven, earth, and underworld. Uniting above and below, the passage of growth and decay, the tree takes on the appearance of death in the winter, only to sprout new branches with the return of spring. In this way, the tree is a symbol of resurrection, a potent medium erupting from unbroken terrains, flourishing in open air, and falling into dark geographies once more. 

Memento Mori acquires a moralizing purpose—the prospect of death serves to emphasize the emptiness and fleetingness of earthly pleasures, luxuries, and achievements, and thus serves as an invitation to focus one's thoughts on the fragility of existence and the prospect of the afterlife. Memento Mori reveals the multifaceted nature of the death-rebirth mystery and serves to illuminate the human life cycle. 

Viewers of Memento Mori are invited to contemplate life and death from multiple points of view. The tree image is a living Memento Mori. Its purpose is to remind the viewer that death is an unavoidable part of life, something to be prepared for at all times. But the image of the tree also reminds us of something startling and important: life is meaningful, temporary, and sacred. 


Since its creation, Memento Mori has been installed in some amazing places!

Growth Through All Seasons

Collection of Central Oregon Community College in Bend, OR.
Displayed in the Campus Center.


Growth through All Seasons was created specifically for the Central Oregon Community College (COCC) Campus Center.  Surrounded by countless trees, COCC is amongst the world’s most beautiful campuses. A vibrant campus, COCC serves the community every month of the year, fostering growth in people of all ages. In every season of the year and through all seasons of life, COCC cultivates growth in the scholars it serves, in the local economy, and in the community as a whole.

Central Oregon Community College is the oldest two-year college in Oregon, and it provides comprehensive college services to the residents of its 10,000-square-mile district. COCC offers two-year associate degrees, transfer/lower division programs, career and technical education degrees and certificates, developmental courses, continuing education and community learning classes, industry-specific training programs, and business management assistance.

The College's main campus is located on the western edge of Bend, a city known for its natural beauty and its proximity to diverse recreational opportunities. The location affords spectacular views of the mountains from nearly every point on the 201-acre campus.

In addition to being fortunate enough to have created artwork for this wonderful college, I am also fortunate enough to teach a variety of art and photography classes here.

See Artwork by Natasha Bacca on Portlandia

Portlandia is a sketch comedy television series that parodies life in Portland, Oregon. Set and filmed in and around Portland, Oregon, the show stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. The show is produced by Andrew Singer, Lorne Michaels and David Allen Cress for Broadway Video Television and IFC Original Productions. It was created by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, along with Jonathan Krisel, who directs it. It debuted on IFC on January 21, 2011. The show shares its title with the sculpture of the same name that sits above the entrance of the Portland Building on Fifth Avenue in downtown Portland, which appears in the show's title sequence.

Production for the first season began in 2010. Along with Allison Silverman, a former head writer and executive producer for The Colbert Report, and Portlandia director Jonathan Krisel, Armisen and Brownstein wrote the sketches that appear in the first six episodes. Lorne Michaels served as executive producer. The series stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein in various roles. Guest stars include: Kirsten Dunst; Olivia Wilde; Selma Blair; Chloë Sevigny; Roseanne Barr; Steve Buscemi; Aimee Mann; Sarah McLachlan; Brownstein's Sleater-Kinney bandmate, Janet Weiss; KD Lang; Angel Bouchet; Heather Graham; Michael Nesmith; Aubrey Plaza; Kumail Nanjiani; Jason Sudeikis; Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam; J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr.; Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age; Gus Van Sant; Tim Robbins; Martina Navratilova; Jeff Goldblum; Joanna Newsom; Annie Clark; Jack White; and Kyle MacLachlan as a fictional mayor of Portland. Actual Portland mayor Sam Adams is also featured as an assistant to the mayor. Another episode, including a fictionalized music festival similar to Portland's actual MusicfestNW, featured a rock band played by Colin Meloy and Jenny Conlee of The Decemberists; James Mercer of The Shins; Brownstein's Sleater-Kinney bandmate, Corin Tucker; and Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse.

Now in its 7th season, the show has received positive reviews from television critics. Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times called the show "funny and charming." Verne Gay of Newsday awarded the series an "A" grade and called it "hilarious". He noted that "Brownstein and Armisen move so effortlessly between characters, then execute their riffs, tics, styles and voices with such skilled abandon that before long this doesn't seem like satire any longer but a fun house mirror reflection of intensely real people." Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is a fan of the show. In a 2014 interview he said, "I think that's the best comedy on TV right now, and it's easily one of the best comedies of all time".

 

Awards and nominations:

·       Portlandia won a Peabody Award in 2011 "for its good-natured lampooning of hipster culture, which hits the mark whether or not you’re in on the joke."

·       Portlandia won an Emmy Award in 2011 for Outstanding Costumes for a Variety Program or Special.

·       Portlandia was nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series in the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.

·       Former Portland mayor Sam Adams (2009 to 2012) also appeared on the show and proclaimed January 21, 2011, Portlandia Day.

·       For the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, the show received nominations for:

o   Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Fred Armisen,

o   Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series,

o   Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series for Jonathan Krisel, and

o   Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for Steve Buscemi for the episode "Celery".

 

 

I have been honored to have my artwork featured on numerous television shows. As a part-time resident of Portland, Oregon, I am especially honored to have my artwork featured on this brilliant and hilarious show!

 


Here "Cheers" is seen in the opening episode of season 7:

Continue to keep an eye out for more of my artwork on Portlandia, and please let me know if you see it!

Painting with Light ~ How I Create My Artwork

When I began blogging 4 years ago one of my goals was to give more insight to a common question - How do I create my artwork?

Over the past 4 years I have explained and illustrated my process as best I can in writing and photographs, as well as had others video and interview me creating my artwork.

See more below. 


6 years ago I was granted a US patent for the tool and process by which I create my art.

My journey to obtaining a patent began in 2005 when I was pursuing my photography based art degree.... Pondering the root words photo meaning light and graph meaning to write, I began exploring the concept of literally writing with light.... 

Read more here.


I was filmed creating a piece of my artwork for a local television show. 

See it here


I work in darkness, and therefore feel more than see what I am working with....
 

Read more here.


I work with different techniques...

  • staggered wine glasses = different sizes & sharpness + different color filters combined = variety
  • bent photo paper = distortion of shapes & sizes + color filters = opposite colors
  • crystal wine glasses refract more light + different color filters = patterns

My family and I began this year in Japan, where we were fortunate enough to spend an entire month. We traveled at least one week of every month January-October, spending time in Japan, southern Oregon, 3 months in Portland, Oregon, and 2 months in various parts of California. We also enjoyed numerous camping trips in Oregon, including camping at Oregon Country Fair and Beloved Festival. We are fortunate to be able to travel together as a family, as well as live in beautiful Bend, Oregon where we are enjoying the last 2 months of 2016. My husband and I also enjoyed celebrating our 15-year-anniversary and our son’s 1st birthday.


This journey is so incredible in so many ways, and looking back to see how far we've come is incredible; humbling; insightful; inspiring. We’ve certainly had many wonderful EXPERIENCES! With each "year end review" I am surprised and delighted at all the wonderful things I did and experienced throughout the year! This journey is a blessing! One I am very grateful for, and I am especially grateful for those I am fortunate enough to share this journey with! As a creator, I’ve said numerous times, my greatest creation is my life journey.

The best places to share my journey are Instagram (personal here and art-related here), Facebook (personal here and art-related here), Twitter, my blog, and my monthly newsletters.

Abstract Artworks by Natasha Bacca


The above artworks are images I created years ago, yet I do not currently have them displayed on my website. Reach (below) was one of my earliest light painting creations in 2008, and it was rented for numerous commercials and television shows, including ABC's television shows Last Man Standing and Scandal, CBS's television show Two Broke Girls, and more. It was recently purchased by The Big Bang Theory, which you can read about here.



With the popularity of Reach I was asked to create more similar artworks. I love commissions, and several of these artworks have also been rented for use on television. If you ever see any of them please let me know! :)

Many people don't realize abstract art is actually created from reality, but in visual representation it departs from reality. When creating abstract art I often create with an emotion in mind. I use color and design to create a specific feel. How an image is interpreted is based on the viewers' feelings when observing the artwork.

New Artworks by Natasha Bacca

Last month I created the above new artworks. 

As an artist I use creativity to bring beauty into this world, to heal myself and to inspire others to heal themselves. In line with my one of a kind artwork I choose nature as an analogous subject as all elements of nature are unique. With no two trees, flowers or other natural elements ever being exactly alike, I bring to light the intricate textures and details of my subjects. I deepen the notion of exceptional nature as a mirror of exceptional human nature, using nature as a catalyst to explore concepts of life and health. I commonly use multiple-panels as views illustrating a mysterious reality alluding to the interconnectedness of all life on our planet and providing a metaphor for our common evolutionary ancestry. I use trees and flowers as peaceful symbols of life. Trees and flowers illustrate the passage of time and growth, taking on the appearance of decay in the winter only to sprout anew with the return of spring. In this way, my nature-based artworks are an inspirational symbol of resurrection and healing. Nature exhibits a transitory beauty, an ephemeral symbol of the cycle of life that engages the Earth as a living medium, reminding viewers that life is meaningful and sacred.
