Art is Healing...Healing is an Art

Sandra Silberzweig was born and raised in Toronto, Canada in the 1960s and divides her time between Toronto and the Niagara Wine Region area. She is a contemporary painter of Visionary Outsider Art and has been painting all her life. University educated in the Arts, but self-taught in painting, Silberzweig has explored the many facets of the Fine Arts industry. She has been involved in teaching art and writing about it, and selling her art online and at galleries locally and internationally.
Silberzweig’s artistic style reflects her lifelong struggle with many various forms of synesthesia, a condition which can be debilitating at times due to its involuntary sensory overload. It is a neurological phenomenon, and still remains a complex
and mysterious disorder. Ironically, this condition formed the basis of her creativity, thus allowing the viewer a unique glimpse into her labyrinthine world of layered visions and intensely colorful dreams. She is inspired by primitive figurative images,
sacred powerful goddesses and animals, and both tribal and spiritual symbolism, which form the basis of her subjects. “When you are a synesthesia goddess, your daydreams are always in color. I am a synesthesia goddess. I have no fear of color.
It lives in my soul, dances in my heart. Spills out of my fingers flowing down a canvas. I can see your aura. Taste the color black. Feel the chill of the green wind. Smell blue butterflies. Hear the yellow rain. Life is never boring when inspiration is
always around.”
Silberzweig continues to research the state of synesthesia. Her goal is to educate others, especially children who might not recognize that they possess this extraordinary gift of inner vision and another sense. Some educators may confuse the child’s perception as a learning disability or claim they have an over active imagination. As a result, these labels could hinder the student’s confidence and self-image. “Art is processed in my mind’s eye, then experienced on all sensory levels: sound, sight, touch, smell, and taste. This is the way art is communicated to me, appearing somewhat psychedelic, in a dreamlike state, entering my aura or personal space in images on different levels in space, or physical sensations like gentle flutters or a bumpy car ride. The objective is to have fun and experience another way of sensing the world around you.” She remains a favorite among teachers and educators who have taught and lectured about her artistic style to their students.

Art is Healing...Healing is an Art

Sandra Silberzweig was born and raised in Toronto Canada in the 1960s and divides her time between Toronto, and the Niagara Wine Region area. She lives with her husband and has two adult sons. She is a contemporary painter of Visionary Outsider Art, and has been painting all her life. University educated in the Arts, but self-taught in painting, Silberzweig has explored the many facets of the Fine Arts industry. She has been involved in teaching art and writing about it, selling her art online, and at galleries locally and internationally. She is also a Fellow of the Canadian and Great Britain Gemological Association (FCGm.A) Her scientific knowledge of crystals and gemstones has aided her in deriving healing and aesthetic qualities from their magnificent colors and holistic energies....... Silberzweig's artistic style reflects her lifelong struggle with many various forms of Synesthesia, a condition which can be debilitating at times due to its involuntary sensory overload. It is a neurological phenomenon and still remains a complex and mysterious disorder. Ironically, this condition formed the basis of her creativity thus allowing the viewer a unique glimpse into her labyrinthine world of layered visions and intensely colorful dreams. She is inspired by primitive figurative images, sacred powerful goddesses and animals, and both tribal and spiritual symbolism which form the basis of her subjects......... When you are a synesthesia goddess ...... your daydreams are always in color....... I am a synesthesia goddess > I have no fear of color > It lives in my soul, dances in my heart > Spills out of my fingers flowing down a canvas > I can see your aura > Taste the color black > Feel the chill of the green wind > Smell blue butterflies > Hear the yellow rain > Life is never boring when inspiration is always around........ I am attracted to big bold colorful images...Art is processed in my mind's eye, then experienced on all sensory levels; sound, sight, touch, smell, and taste. This is the way art is communicated to me, appearing somewhat psychedelic, in a dream-like state, entering my aura or personal space in images on different levels in space, or physical sensations like gentle flutters or a bumpy car ride. When I paint or write, the synesthesia experience is usually triggered and the 'adventure' unfolds. The longer I am focusing on the creative process, the more enhanced the symptoms become. This is my deeply personal journey, individually, everyone who is afflicted experiences differently. ... the painting and I have an unspoken dialogue and an idiosyncratic relationship. Inspiration and ideas come to me in waves through environmental impressions and some colors can taste like foods. Most of my sensations are experienced in my mind's eye outside my body bubble, like in another Space or Dimension. Each emotion or thought is paired with a color; each color has its own personality and movements, like people, pets or temperaments. Sounds can speak in whispers, creep up my back like spiders, and songs trigger a new direction in the painting process. Painting a flower can evoke a particular scent, related or not to the plant. Some of the lines, dots, and symbols can represent letters that form a rustic alphabet deciphered only by me. At any time, I can read my secret messages when I view that image. The more intense the inner conversation, the more layering and textures will therefore appear in my artwork. Sometimes this energy can become overloading and stressful. At times, it can be a negative force, demanding and exhausting, compelling me to paint when I need to rest. I am often told my paintings can seem quite complex and intense, this is the reason why. They are the culmination of an emotional and physical roller coaster in another dimension. It is quite complicated to say the least...... For many years I did not know about Synesthesia, never heard the word or knew that this condition existed. It has only been recently that I have been seeking intervention because of the intensity and strangeness of my reactions to some basic stimulus. When you are born a certain way, you adapt, you don't know any other way. You struggle along the way, you can feel isolated or confused as a child. In my personal experience, when 'weird' became 'cool' in my teens I developed the confidence to forge ahead with my unique interpretation of art. Many years later I learned how to manage my artistic abilities. I thought everyone felt, and experienced art the same way I did...at times it was frustrating to be that misunderstood when I reached out to classmates to share my experiences. I still struggle to use the universally accepted vocabulary to share my synesthesia experiences. My communication skills elude me when I put these words to print effectively, but my artwork expresses my message perfectly!....... Nowadays I am grateful, and through understanding, education and behavior modifications I now consider this condition a gift and a blessing...... Silberzweig also combines the elements and styles of cubism, folk, expressionism and modern art. She is inspired by many artists, honoring them in with her own interpretive style. “The painting process leads me on a journey, the outcome is unpredictable even if my intentions were sketched out. This can be quite time consuming if I'm commissioned to paint a particular image for a client but have little creative control on the finished product. I feel like a vessel allowing the message to be expressed through my paintbrush...I just surrender to its power and let go...the results tend to be a hybrid of art and dialogue that speak its own extraordinary language.' ........ Silberzweig continues to research the state of Synesthesia. Her goal is to educate others, especially children who might not recognize that they possess this extraordinary gift of inner vision and another sense. 'Some educators may confuse the child's perception as a learning disability or claim they have an overactive imagination. As a result, these labels could hinder the students confidence and self image. Teachers and parents need more resources and information about this syndrome, to date...not a lot of material is out there...hopefully the future will be more enlightening'........ Others can be taught to experience this phenomenon through her specialized instruction. Silberzweig has created a system of teaching called Silbersenze © This method of artistic expression incorporates the five senses and the seven energy colors. Children and adults are encouraged to paint what they feel, not see. Through a series of inspiring exercises, including breathing techniques, color immersion, and imagery journeys, students tend to be more receptive and open to a new level of creativity and expression. 'The objective is to have fun and experience another way of sensing the world around you'. With this technique, artwork is not judged or graded; but only discussed and experiences shared....... Currently, Silberzweig has been combining select areas from her professions as a Gemmologist and Writer, in order to develop her unique Silbersenze © style of teaching. She is also working on an assortment of publications that will showcase her artwork, educational material, and poetry. Silberzweig has been written about in blogs, magazines, and newspapers and discussed on TV and radio. Her art has been licensed commercially and sold abroad. She remains a favorite among teachers and educators who have taught and lectured about her artistic style to their students. ....... SANDRA SILBERZWEIG Copyright © 1995-2019
