The Chaya Chesed Love Life Codex
Encountering Nothingness in Pursuit of I Am
An On-Going Expression of Living Every Day
Evidence of a Search for Meaning in the Face of the Mystery Most Pronounced in Meeting Oneself in the Mirror With Active Effort to Gaze As If Never Having Seen That Image Before…
Cheselyn Amato presents the Chaya Chesed Love Life Codex, a re-presentation of three decades of her visual work cast in the light of what she has learned about All That Is. Cheselyn has been engaged in an irrepressible and irresistible quest to describe her experience of being. She has walked deep into her unknown and wrestled to release herself from self-definition that arrives from the forms and shapes given to her from without – inherited and learned. She has been engaged in encountering her mind and in that encountering to distill, if and as can be, awareness, sensation, experience that feels and seems unfettered by what has been given. This enterprise has been driven by a desire that has remained unimpeded – to be in balance and guided by love. She wishes this for herself and for each and every human being who so seeks. While it has been said that all has been written, it has also been said that freewill has been given. She is at this moment no longer compelled to deconstruct contradictions with the intention of solving, resolving or dissolving them nor to assimilate them as inviolably beyond comprehension or irresolvable. This visual chronicle – often called a retrospective exhibition – presents her life-long investigative encounter with being about being to facilitate being as fully as she imagines. You are invited to encounter her encounter over the span of three decades as it has unfolded right up to this moment.
