INSIGHTS
INTO
VAYDRA'S ASSOCIATED SKILLS

Bringing the Experience
of
Association to Life

We all have a story to tell or can connect to the event in some way. 

We are all exposed to the unexpected environment, the trauma of witnessing physical force and power, and hearing high difficulty sounds on a regular or irregular basis at some point in our life. 

The formation of a holistic thinking mode can begin as early as infancy or at various stages throughout our lives. Unbeknownst to us, associative abilities were crucial to our growth and physical well-being throughout our lives.

Unfortunately, undetected trauma can often be misdiagnosed and treated as physical symptoms. 

 

Vaydra brings to life the associated experience.

Vaydra Wright’s exhibition “Descending into Escapism: Series 1” is on view in our skylight room through June 12th. Her kaleidoscopic digital artworks associated with Surrealism were created as coping strategies for her periods of dissociation, a psychological condition in which one detaches from reality in response to traumatic events and triggering stimuli. Vaydra’s “descent into escapism” is deeply fascinating, whether one knows the source of her inspiration or not.

Original exhibition artworks are kept in San Diego

and is available for purchase.
