Contemplations on the Void Triptych by Corviid
Contemplations on the Void Triptych
24" x 48" Oil on Masonite Panel.

Triptych: Release, Rebirth, Threshold

Contemplations on the Void is a depiction of the emotions related to each stage of enlightenment, or dissolving the illusory boundary between the self and nothingness.

Release: the pure bliss of letting go, of feeling all aspects of the self disintegrate. 
Threshold: the awe and loneliness of sitting at the edge of the realization and meditating upon it.
Rebirth: the bittersweet intersection of having the self torn away and torturously broken down but becoming something beautifully new. This new thing is made from the old thing, and so it is simply a re-realization of what is already there.

Science / Nature sleeves by Corviid
Science / Nature sleeves
Two three-quarter tattoo sleeves that start at the wrist.

This person is a chiropractor, and so wanted a spine-inspired design at the center of each, with one side representing the natural world with organic shapes and the other with a more science/industrial feel.

Designed for a client; not available for use.

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Corviid began working as a self-taught artist in the Bay Area in 2006 after obtaining degrees in Philosophy and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology in Tucson, Arizona. If one had to sum up her artistic style, one might call it "Surreal Macabre." Her works contain elements of anatomy, natural history, the macabre, sacred and symbolic geometry, architecture and ornamentation. Because of a life-long interest and scholarly background in philosophy, every work is given a strong philosophical undertone. Through her art, she touches on issues of metaphysics, existentialism, death, mathematical archetypes, duality (the fact and the illusion), emotion, and our relationship as humans to other organisms, nature, and the universe. Similarly with a fascination and background in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, her work is influenced by natural forms and scientific illustrative styles throughout history. She works in a wide variety of mediums; tending to move forward into uncharted territory, collecting mediums and techniques as she goes and combining them in novel ways in each new work.

In addition to fine art, Corviid creates original and unique designs for album covers, tattoos, clothing lines, and stage productions. She has a line of jewelry as well as couture costuming for dance performance artists. She is the Dance Director and Choreographer for two troupes: her own creation, Ego Umbra, which combines her own unique dance fusion of bellydance, contemporary, and hip-hop with metal music; and CoRE, a ritual suspension troupe. She is a soloist performer, dance teacher, and collaborator with many other dance and performance groups in a variety of styles. She is a classically trained musician with a diploma in piano performance, and she also does sculpture, photography and writing. During the summers she teaches illustration, painting and fashion design to kids and is currently working on program-wide curriculum development in these art courses. Her hobbies also include sleeping occasionally, though she is thinking of giving that up.
