Whether you are offering up, or drawing down in your practice (be it tarot, astrology, runes, candle magic, tea leaves, or simply to sit and meditate) Divination Spirit is your magical companion on the spiritual and physical planes, offering a blessing beside you. “As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” ― Hermes Trismegistus
Somsara Rielly is a Los Angeles Visual Artist and all-around seeker whose given name means “the eternal cycle of birth, suffering, death and rebirth” in Sanskrit.
Pulling from personal narrative as well as a lifelong collection of vintage paper and ephemera, her work invites the eye to linger on and re-contextualize the familiar. As seen in the mid-century ideal much of her imagery references, rarely are things as they appear. Her collage and mixed-media work weaves in layers of interpretation, hidden messages, and plays with the seemingly random connections between things. Propelled by a daily meditation practice, Somsara has a deep desire to find magic in the everyday that surrounds us, while exploring the profound inner world that exists in each of us.
Somsara has worked with the Los Angeles Times, BBC, American Public Media, Stephen Schwartz, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and American Cinema Editors among many others. Past artwork exhibitions include Los Angeles City Hall, San Francisco Center for the Book, Burt Green, Wallspace, Good Eye, Co-Lab, Machamux and sp[a]ce Galleries.
