https://Art2Life.com- It was about a year ago, during Covid lockdown, when I happened to pull a random card from a tarot deck. The drawing and the words on the card immediately stirred me. So much so that I sought out the artist.
Her name is Kim Krans. The drawing on the card I pulled was hers, but so were all the others. She had created the whole deck. The descriptive words, artist, teacher, and musician usually attributed to Kim, although true, are too small in my opinion, to describe her and her work. Kim's life and art are inextricably linked to life force. To shakti, energy and flow state. There is a palatable raw and wildness felt in her words. I believe Kim holds a rarely found knowledge about truth and vulnerability - that it can be found by bravely looking in the shadows within ourselves.
Our journeys are all different but similar in that much is not seen. Much is so easily overlooked. I hope this conversation can serve as a reminder, an invitation to take a moment now, a breath, and to consider the extraordinary, almost miraculous intelligence found not just in our art-making but in our lives as well.
