Fresh Faces: Lori Diamond Art, Marking The Movement For Art and Charity

You look at the image above and see a plethora of euphoric visual symbols that all connect to elude an uplifting vibe. That is not by mistake. The painting above was created by wonderous artist, Lori Diamond in pursuit of bringing hope to the universe. She wants this painting, although physically abstracted to give a clear sense of hope, faith and life to ones around the world. Her deepest philanthropic passion is to contribute to the emotional and physical wellbeing of children suffering serious illnesses. She acknowledges that art is a very powerful concept that can impact one's state of mind to a great degree. The only issue is to open the eyes of society so that they can come to recognize this as well. That is why she is marking a movement through her artistic practice to spread hope throughout the world.

There is a very succinct connection between aesthetic value, cognitive value and spiritual value. 

The asthetic value of something is determined by how visually impactful it is. How does it catch your eye? Her art work presents blatant technical skill, use of softly saturated color and great pattern execution. 

The cognitive value of something is determined by what it makes you think. Does it turn geers in your head or are you left unaffected? Clearly, the composition above makes you think of many principles that could possibly be represented by the various visual metaphors. For example, the four diamonds in teh center are circling the focal poin, that is a sun-like object with a peace symbol at its core. One could interpret that this is meant to exemplify how an inner calm or tranquility can be equated to or superior to the possession of material wealth. Also, you could interepret that this could be implying that the possession of hope, peace and serenity is the greatest treasure possible, not materials.

Lastly, the emotional value that something gives is determined by how something makes you feel. Does the object evoke heavy emotions or does it not impact you at all? With the piece above, it sooths the onlooker and puts one at ease. The entire composition does nothing but relax the individual while simultaneously empowering and comforting them. 

This is just one of Lori Diamond's many pieces that she will be debuting over time. As said before, this is the mark of a movement. So, stay tuned for updates. For more information on her and her work, please visit the links below!

About Me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 20x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country a

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

The Search For "Mr. Right": 2 Years On Every App Taught Me This

  Over the last 2 years, I've been conducting what some could call a "social experiment." I have been single (by choice) for the better part of the last 2.5 years and had an epiphany a little over 2 years ago to give online dating services a shot! While it hasn't been the most miraculous experience, it has certainly been a valuable one! And, I strongly recommend that anyone who is looking to settle down with a life partner, give them a try! Maybe you don't need to sign up for almost every app known to man like I have LOL, but at least try the major ones. This blog is a detailed account of my findings as a young, sweet, successful woman with online dating.  For clarity, I've added the below chart for you to understand who I am and what I have to offer versus what I am seeking. This foundational knowledge is key to comprehending the results of my "experiment." I, as a 26 year old woman who is the CEO of a successful small business (
