“Art cannot change events, but it may affect people so
that they are changed… because people are changed
by Art – enriched, ennobled, encouraged –
they then act in a way that may affect the course of events
by the way they vote, behave, and think.
“..We're only guests here..
Trespassing beyond physical boundaries as souls,
reflecting relevant truths about the universal puzzle of our Unity.

TRAPPED IN FREEDOM
Contemplation and osmosis with the waters she sailed into life since her Day of conception in Crete, shaped the calligraphy of her own musical Wave, composing her symphony via themes beyond her own awareness. Arising via inner locutions, unfolding as to how we relate to another from holistic perspectives, her surrendered state of trance in her creative proceedings often incubate as mixed-media over-drawn to over-written poetry, painted over depleted resin prints she partially cuts and sculpts into semi-reliefs. Starting with two distinct wave mouvements entitled OCEAN'S CALLIGAPHY / Seasoul - her slogan "Mektub is written in the sea.." of each 2,5 x 5 meter long series, painted live then extracted from the original 80m linear billboard she painted in 3 nights of July 2014 on the shores of Port Hercules.
Not purely abstract yet fully intuitive, Jeanne Ricketts' poems, murals and paintings (1993-now) suggest a tartan of oceanic poiesis*, softly blurred and intertwined into a wild, almost Aboriginal to Asian calligraphic style. Her works cross-dissolve into layers of diluted inks, and have set into motion her ethereal trace. -
“Never before has the family of humankind had a greater need for the power of Art to generate calming connections across world systems. Ricketts' visionary paintings link internal, emotional and cognitive systems with external cultural realities and explore new patterns for understanding nature and human nature.” —
Dr. Phillip Romero MD New York City, founder of the Smart Peace Prize, is a psychiatrist, art-expert and author of "Phantom Stress” co-written by Joe La Placa, Director of Cardi Gallery London. Dr. Romero interviewed scientists and other spiritual established artists such as Andy Warhol, and years later also Jeanne Ricketts at her chapel murals in Provence (France), in the pursuit of brain studies; building a theory on proving that art = survival and how its spirit can bring resilience and peace at all times.”
