AWAKENING

May the forest be with you.

Sometimes I ask myself what the trees have seen, how much they know...

The forest is always a perfect location to escape from technology, the battles of the modern world, just to enjoy stillness, and the windblown woods. I wish you all the keep a part of the forest in you.

THE PATH OF DAO

Fine art body painting at an exhibition opening of The Lake-Blue Heaven, International Spring Art Salon

Bodypainting, painting & video: Bella Volen

Qingdao, China

May 2017

 

I participated with this installation and two other canvas paintings.

The invited artists came from all around the world.

The painting is a cityscape with a few famous places in Qingdao, a city in eastern Shandong Province on the east coast of China.

Since Qingdao was the birthplace of Taoism/Daoism/ the center of the painting is a Tao temple. The word Dao means way/path, therefore the central part is a path through the temple, symbolically a way through many gates and stages of life, personal, emotional and spiritual growth as human nature, beings, cultures, and countries, but also the path of the inner world of our own body as a temple of the human spirit, power, mind, faith and duality. All these elements of human nature cannot be easily grasped, explained or understood, their existence is similar to beauty or art-it is only in the eyes of the beholder.

ADDICTION

ESCAPE FROM YOURSELF

 

A visual poem by Bella Volen

 

The poem shows more or less a surreal vision of the world of an addicted person.

The text afterwards is inspirational for those, who feel lost.

This poem is a result of the pain I went trough of not being able to help people I care about with addiction.

I hope there are others ready for a change.

Dancers:

Raha Nejad, Luana Rossetti, U-Gin Boateng

 

 

TEMPO RARE-a format, created by the director Anja Kozik, which sets new artistic impulses. The powerful spirit, strength and depth in the music of composer Sven Helbig are meeting the expressive art of painter Bella Volen.

The dancers Raha Nejad, U-Gin Boateng und Luana Rossetti as a part of this creative process deliver a convincingly extraordinary performance. Creative threads and strings are woven, connected, linked together and showing over and over again a new perspective of space and perception.

12. February 2016

Bella created a white body painting for the amazing Zoë (Zoe Straub), who was the Austrian winner

and will represent Austria at EUROVISION Song Contest in May 2016 in Stockholm.

A new inspirational video- a visual poem about the dark moments in life.

There are only a few steps between the darkness and the light.

I have never been depressed, but there are millions of people around the world, who are struggling with constant sadness and living with major depression.

This serious illness is the cause for many humans to put their life on hold, stop believing in their dreams, giving up new chances, looking through a black mirror and often the beginning of an alcohol, drugs or medication problems, addiction, sometimes it leads to a bitter end. I believe this life is a gift and not a battle and wish more people to search the happiness and love from within.
