INSIGHTS INTO

VAYDRA'S ASSOCIATED SKILLS

Bringing Associated Experience to Life

We all have a story to share or can relate to the associated experience.

At some point in our lives, we are exposed to the unpredictable environment, the trauma of witnessing physical force and power & overhearing high difficulty sounds on a regular or irregular basis.

 

The development of holistic thinking mode can form from an infant or during our life milestones. Unbeknown to us, associative skills played a major role in our development & physical well being throughout our life.

This can be undetected, unfortunately, inadequately diagnosed and treated as physical symptoms.

Vaydra brings associated experience to life.

TESTIMONIALS

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.
