Optimystic Arts is the work and service of Gemma Danielle
Gemma Danielle seeks by contemplation and self-surrender to obtain unity with the absolute, and pursues universal truths that are beyond the intellect and the individual. Inspired by her personal healing journey, Gemma’s work points beyond the illusion of separation, to express the ineffable mystical experience of transpersonal consciousness. Speaking the universal language of geometry, she offers works created in humble prayer and focused intention, encoded with harmonic frequencies and channeled energies beyond logical understanding. The increasing intellectualization of consciousness, initially a progressive direction of human evolution, has led to a loss of connection with both natural and spiritual realities. Gemma affirms art can serve as an antidote to the spiritual apathy of contemporary culture, beyond the fashionable expression of ego, to bring profound personal transformation and catalyze global spiritual evolution.
Gemma Danielle is an artist and certified Reiki Master instructor. She has studied traditional Usui Reiki for over a decade and combines shamanic journeying, plant medicine ceremonies, akashic record reading and sound healing in her private practice. Her art began as a medium for the healing energies of Reiki, and she often references the ancient meditation tool of the mandala as a conductor and generator of this energy. She repeats silent prayers, or mantras, with each line drawn in her intricate webs, and she labors over the precise straight lines without the aid of a ruler, attempting to mimic the technical precision of a computer by embracing the powerful capabilities of the human hand. Her meditation totems are direct narratives and visual alignments, speaking to self-awareness and the subtle energy bodies of our being. She claims these works exist in multiple dimensions and can elicit an involuntary emotional response.
