We Believe in Harmony & Balance
ART; an ENERGETIC and AESTHETIC force
We believe that our surroundings have a fundamental effect on our life. The art that you display and the location in your environment alters the energy flow. Art has a personal resonance; the colors, images and objects in your space are dynamic. We create the highest vibration for your environment. Our designs incorporate color schemes, analyzing the warm and cool elements as well as the contrast and compliments of opposites. It is an energetic equation.
“Energy flows in and produces effects in the phenomenal world." William James
There is a personal resonance with art. We encourage our clients to honor their instincts. Our paradigm is to FEEL, THINK and ACT. The energy of the art has to resonate. We analyze the space and the intention. The process is dynamic, not static. We appreciate that there will be modifications and adjustments. We are invested in your transformation.
We integrate architectural and design elements, parameters in which the art has to align. We are not rigid in our application. We incorporate the structural requirements and broad aesthetic in our art acquisition. We work primarily with interior designers and architects. We are a compliment to the existing structure and design elements.

“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.”
NATURE simultaneously grounds and elevates us
The duality of nature
Current architectural styles often disregard the effect of sound reverberation and mood created by hard surface materials. Modern interiors can be cold and noisy - both visually and aurally. Art can transform a space with hard lines and surfaces to an intimate environment with natural colors, texture and warmth.
We specialize in incorporating elements of nature in our designs. We integrate natural patterns, textures, colors and shapes to inspire and illuminate a space. We create elemental balance and symmetry. We integrate art that is a celebration of the duality and depth of the natural world. Nature simultaneously grounds us and elevates us. Art honoring nature has an elemental harmony.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
We facilitate the process from the initial vision to delivery and installation. We monitor progress and facilitate modifications. We ensure your alignment with your project design and if appropriate corporate brand image. Our process is as as critical as the product.
“I honestly have never seen a surface that speaks in such a way. It somehow taps at a place in you that has been lost to the modern world.”
Michael Buckley, Wieden+Kennedy
QUANTUM PHYSICS; the POWER of energy
We Believe in ENERGY
At Essence Arts we believe in energetic and aesthetic alignment. By adjusting objects in our space we create harmony and balance. In an era of technology and artificial environments, we invite you to resume a more organic, natural approach. The art that resonates with us is a celebration of the natural world and humanity. It is high vibrational and elevates a space.
The art exists in an environment and that balance is critical. Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement. The art of arrangement can be explained through a field of science referred to as quantum physics. It is vibrational. We incorporate color theory, natural resonance and elemental art in our design. We work with you to align the art to your space.
“Everything in Life is Vibration.” Albert Einstein
Our respect for the physics of nature and humanity are at the crux of Essence Arts. We apply laws of energetic harmony and balance, ancient formulas, to enhance your environment. The duality of balance is quantum physics. It effects colors, patterns, images and arrangements. We practice energetic harmony, creating high vibrational spaces.
If desired we equip or clients with various tools to apply to their lives for personal transformation. We assess internal environments too. It is important that the art and the environmental arrangement resonate with the client.
" The human body is made up of electronic vibrations, with each atom and elements of the body, each organ and organism." Edgar Cayce
VAN GOGH; the PASSION of artists
We Believe in ART
The power of art is displayed in the iconic tortured artist, Vincent Van Gogh. He strove to convey his emotional and spiritual state in thick paint strokes. This radically idiosyncratic, emotionally evocative style has continued to affect art and culture, aesthetically and energetically. Despite his apparent failure as an artist to achieve acclaim, he painted with raw brutal passion - devout.
“I dream of painting and then I paint my dream." Van Gogh
Van Gogh's devotion to the inner spirituality of man and nature in his paintings led to a fusion of style and content that resulted in dramatic, imaginative, rhythmic, and emotional canvases. His paintings convey far more than the subject matter. He explored paint as an alchemical medium. The paint transformed the canvas - a container for the vibrational energy - affecting the artist and audience.
ART as communion with ENERGY
Balance and Tension
Although the source of anguish in his personal life, Van Gogh's mental instability provided the frenzied source for the emotional renderings of his surroundings and imbued each image with a deeper psychological reflection and resonance.
"In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing."
Vincent Van Gogh
Starry Night is often considered to be Van Gogh's ultimate achievement. Unlike most of his works, Starry Night was painted from memory - not in the landscape. The emphasis on interior, emotional life is clear in his swirling, tumultuous depiction of the sky - a departure from his previous, naturalistic landscapes.
Van Gogh adhered to a strict principal of structure and composition in which the forms are distributed across the surface of the canvas in an exact order, mathematical precision. The strokes create balance and tension amidst the turbulence of the cypress trees and the night sky.
The result is a landscape rendered through turbulent strokes. The chaos is kept at bay with a rigorous formal arrangement. Evocative of the spirituality Van Gogh found in nature, Starry Night is famous for propelling the act of painting beyond the illusion of the physical world to the reality of our inner plane, the night sky.
How does art commune with us? An artist in our gallery painted colorful abstracts. Out of the blue she painted a series that she referred to as "the golden eggs". They were disturbing self-portraits. The artist with her head cut open. The artist with a nest on her head with three golden eggs. The artist with angel wings, her head and breast wrapped in gauze. The artist with her breast exposed and an outstretched arm holding a golden egg, titled "What will I do now?"
The series was painted in 2012. In 2014 she was diagnosed with three nonoperable brain tumors and in 2015 with breast cancer. In 2016 she passed. On the back of the canvases she had written messages to her son - instructions. Her art was communicating with her, a platform for the subconscious to surface.

Reality and illusion
We are artists, collectors, interior designers, Feng Shui practitioners and cultural anthropologists
We promote creativity and the imagination
Essence Art installs fine art in environments. There is an obvious aesthetic component but we strive for the artistic resonance and energetic harmony. We are artists, designers, and Feng Shui practitioners. We have a deep appreciation for the creative force; the energy and vibration of life captured in containers - art. We have experienced art and energy on a perosnal level and have been compelled to offer it forth on a broad platform.
We believe in the power of art and energy. That rhythmic pulse is visible in Van Gogh's life. That energy drove Van Gogh to paint dense visible brushstrokes, offering direct access to how he viewed his life. His turbulence producing a mathematical genius that exceeded the human potential. We believe that art communes with us. It is an ancient alchemical process. Energy enters the artist and is conveyed in their art. The art displayed effects the audience. A transmutation of energy.
“The alchemical operations were real, only this reality was not physical but psychological. Alchemy represents the projection of a drama both cosmic and spiritual. The opus magnum [“great work”] had two aims: the rescue of the human soul, and the salvation of the cosmos.”
