Spirit Pervades Matter: Original Art and Designs by Amanda Vela

Amanda's focus is creating art that represents the unconscious, the elements of reality that lie below the surface, a dimension beyond the appearance of things, a transcendental reality, the essence of the universe, the energy in all nature, or the spirit that pervades matter.
However, Spirit Pervades Matter, Un-Limited is about more than art, more than aestheticism, more than material, it is about awareness, opening one's mind to a hidden world beyond the surface of all things that connects us all-everything and everyone- imagination, energy, life and ethereal existence.
Spirit Pervades Matter represents Amanda's philosophies of true nature being endless possibilities, true existence being deeper than the self, true reality being an energy that binds everything, one's true self being a collective unconscious, true goodness being the heart-the essence of everything and true living being connecting with a higher power.
Spirit Pervades Matter is about connecting with our true nature that is beauty, goodness, and abundance; it is about connecting with the earth, with the universe, with ourselves, our higher power, and each other; it is about community, life, love, peace, joy, gratitude, well-being, unity, and enlightenment. It is about appreciation for nature, the present moment, and one another; it is about helping others and supporting each other. It is this philosophy of interconnectedness that inspires Amanda, and drives Spirit Pervades Matter, Un-Limited to donate a portion of its profits to charity as well as use recycled and repurposed materials whenever possible, and promote healthy living for mind, body, and spirit, other artists, local business, and the hand-made/home-made industry.

Find prints of Spirit Pervades Matter artwork in this shop, available on canvas, matted, framed in hand-made, reclaimed barn wood frames, or printed with eco-friendly, water-based inks on 100% organic t-shirts, crop tops, button downs, and more in this shop.

I started creating visionary art to fill a void inside of me, a whole left by a life run on self-will, fed by the lies of this world that told me that if things just went my way, I would be happy. My need to enlarge my spiritual life was deep, as a recovering addict, my life depended on it. Prayer, mediation, and a conscious contact with God were essential if I was to survive.

Spirit Pervades Matter was a result of using art as my meditation practice, creating designs that emphasized this idea that in everything, underneath the surface, there is a profound presence of a power greater than ourselves. This power I have come to know, is my creator, whom I have surrender my will and my life to entirely, who leads me through grace, to live not for what I can receive, but for what I can give. My old self is washed away, and here I stand anew.

Art is a large part of what I am led to give, as an expression of the hope, serenity, and overwhelming joy I have in my relationship with God, my desire is that my work, Spirit Pervades Matter, will uplift those who see it, and that this peace and joy I have found will transcend beyond the canvas, and into hearts. Glory to God Almighty.
