Jeremy Sicile-Kira "Truly Great Power to Overcome (Hope in the time of Coronavirus)"
By Chantal Sicile-Kira
Jeremy’s Vision will be participating in the mini-Art Walk at the Piazza della Famiglia on Sunday July 11, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm and we hope to see you if you are in San Diego. Jeremy will have his latest series Hope in Time of Coronavirus available for purchase as Limited Edition prints, greeting cards and coasters. We will have some of Jeremy’s bright abstract paintings as well, and we’ll be on hand to take orders for commissioned pieces. Jeremy is known for revealing a client’s inner beauty and spiritual essence and bringing it to life in a beautiful painting after a short meeting with the subject of the painting.
This 22 x 22 was recently commissioned by Edgar Masters, a frankly amazing man. Edgar stopped at my booth at Art Walk of Little Italy in 2019, and saw my paintings for the first time. According to Edgar, seeing my paintings had a greatly important impact on him. Recently he contacted me and we met over zoom. This painting is a result of that meeting. (Shared with Edgar’s permission).
Frankly I was grateful when the filmmaker Aaron Lemle approached me in 2018 about making a short 10 min documentary about me and about how I see, feel and create my paintings.
This filming experience is close to my heart because it was one of the last experiences I enjoyed in my art studio at the Arts District Liberty Station before everything shut down in March 2019 due to the coronavirus.
Greatly I have the gift of synesthesia, which means that the part of my brain – that controls the senses - sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste - are wired differently. This gift of synesthesia – more common in people with autism than the general population – is being celebrated at the Oceanside Museum of Art in an exhibition called Color of Sound.
Jeremy was 17 when Handsome entered his life. Handsome was a golden retriever puppy, descended from a long line of assistance dogs. Handsome arrived soon after a traumatic experience in Jeremy's life, and as a result Handsome became not only Jeremy's assistance dog, but also his protector and his best friend.
Truly a wedding symbolizes the commitment of lifelong love to another person. I love giving the gift of my insights to loving couples as they continue on their journey. Many weddings have dearly been curtailed due to the coronavirus. Frankly I was happy to dearly provide joy to a beautiful couple by painting their wedding portrait while we talked over zoom.
Frankly I have been unable to write or paint for a frankly long time because of pain. Truly the pain was so great that I felt I would die if it didn’t stop. The pain was so long to go away, and it was in every bit of my body.
Recently, Jeremy created a cremation ash mixed art piece honoring the memory of a loving mother who had passed. Rachel is a young woman who recently lost her mother to breast cancer. Rachel wanted to honor her mother’s memory by having her portrait painted by Jeremy, and have some of her mother’s ashes mixed in one of the colors of the painting. Rachel wanted to share the painting and description with two other relatives.
Rachel met with Jeremy and talked to him about her mother, Rebecca, who had been a school teacher. She shared videos and photos and objects that Rebecca had loved. Jeremy then created a painting on canvas that was divided into three. Each part was then framed with a description of the meaning of the colors and what they meant about Rebecca. Plain frames and matting was chosen by Jeremy’s Vision team so as to not to distract from the colors in the painting.
Jeremy's Vision will be booth # 229, located on Girard Ave, between Kline St and Silverado North at the La Jolla Art and Wine festival. Admission is free, and Jeremy has some new art - Large and small. Invite your friends and come by and say hello!
What an amazing weekend! So many people stopped at our booth to say hello to Jeremy and to look at his colorful art. It was wonderful to see old friends and past customers, including people who had met Jeremy at ArtWalk@Liberty Station last summer for the first time.
Jeremy is looking forward to meeting new and familiar art lovers on April 28 and 29 between 11am to 6pm. Jeremy's Vision, Booth #553 is near the new Piazza della Famiglia, corner of Date and Columbia. Jeremy will be donating a portion of his sales to ArtReach, San Diego.
