As an artist who lives and works in Santa Fe, NM, I work in multiple medias including watercolors, oils, monotypes, pastels, and pottery. My art provides inspiration for writing haiku poetry as well. All of these works provide an alchemy of evolution through the stages of Nigrado, Albedo, Rubedo, Citrino and Pavanis.

 

I am interested in creating forms and images that reflect time, space and place as a metaphor for the indwelling spirit in all matter, states and beings, as well as the juxtaposition of dark, light and color that reflects the operating principles of the Self in relation to the 'anima mundi' or soul of the world.

Marian A. Shirin

"In alchemy one goes through stages of development:  nigrado, in which one experiences the darkness and depression of life; the albedo, in which one sees the brightness of things; the rubedo, where one discovers passion; and finally citrino where one appreciates the goldeness of life. After all of this comes... the pavanis, the peacock's tail that contains all the preceeding hues. One cannot stop this process until one has brought it to the pavanis, that concert of colors that contains everything."

 

Robert A. Johnson, Owning Your Own Shadow, 1993 pps 117-118
