Brianna Bliss  is creating life as perpetual art ritual + recipes for how to live it

Warmest greetings kindred,
I am Brianna Bliss Gardner.

I'm here on Earth to make art, paint, stitch, weave, dye, print, and move my body. As an archetypal linguist and creatrix I am here to sing liberation, gyrate into justice and hold space for the next coming into being. I will leave this Earth better than I found it. And I'm reaching out arms hugging round everyone with that same vision.


I believe that Earth is a sentient being, I believe in the Mystery. I talk to plants, and venerate my ancestors and the ancestors of the land I live on (what was once Tsalagi/ Cherokee territory.) 
Spiritually, I am an animist. I practice this as best I can approximate to how my way-back people, the ancient Celts, would practice this.

I align myself with these allies and I am deeply inspired by:
Crow, Magpie, all Corvids, carrion kin, all pollinator friends, Spider, Rabbit, Dandelion, Willow, Fungi, especially Reishi/ Ganoderma Tsugae in Southern Appalachia, Yarrow, Rose, Blackthorn, Ocean, Moon, Mountain, River, Stone...

I actively resist:
capitalism, white supremacist patriarchy, and religious dogma

I pursue: pleasure + truth + magic + alignment with natural cycles + the hollow/void/in-between spaces + flavor + texture + color + light + shadow + life as a creative conversation with All Life Force and Nature

So my lens of the world is like this:
Earth medicine + creative expression + art as alchemy + justice work + liberation for all beings + ritual containers for deep transformation + surviving and preparing for near-term collapse + grieving ecocide + being femme through it all + sacred adornment + living to reuse + life as art ritual


Here are some ongoing heART projects:

1.) Fruiting Bodies:  my line of wearable art. I use only secondhand and slow-made (local yarn, etc.) materials to eco-dye, ecoprint, hand embroider, sew, and weave these articles into being

2.) Fierce Creative Practice, in service to my voice, in service to more-than-human Beings, in service to awareness, collective wellness, consciousness raising, and as a call to action 

3.) Ritual Art Workshops: facilitating space for others to meet their inner Creator, pleasure/healing rites that hinge on wild, raw expression and embodiment

4.) Banshee in the Bible Belt: performance project. In solidarity with the spirits of the Land and in gratitude for their assistance, I call into my body Bain Sidhe as a harbinger of death, keening and wailing ill news and ghastly truth. As a white woman I am in conversation my own grief, and with the violent history of white supremacy in my hometown and its present manifestation, using my body as a conduit.  In the lineage of Japanese Butoh dance, and godmother Marina Abramovic I'm performing psychic surgery on the Earth and calling conscious attention to the persistence of symbols of white supremacy that are continuously normalized as "harmless." This has never been normal. It is actively harmful. "Southern Pride" is Southern Shame. Those flags have got to go. 
Black Lives Matter. Period.

5.) Continuous Study: of Divination practices, of Astrology, of Plant Medicine, of Anti-Racism under the tutelage of BIQTPOC,  of decolonization, of ancestral healing, of respectful Land Ritual, of ecology/ ecopsychology/ permaculture/ living sustainably.


Right now my most important goal to realize as an artist healer on her healing path is to afford studio space
. A place where I can create, worship, hold ritual, and facilitate empowering creative healing and expressive space for other creators, activists, artists, change-makers, visionaries... To practice community embodiment, to nourish the nervous systems of folks most vulnerable in our culture, to offer sustenance of a spiritual nature outside the exchange paradigms of standard religious practice.

Anything you contribute here helps fund this space as a refuge for my community and room for my work to take place. As of today, writing this, my art studio is my bedroom floor in my parents' house, where I live. No shame here, no pity requested. But it is what it is. And I need somewhere I can freely sling-dance watercolors, wax, wine, blood & ink, stamp feet and gnash teeth with mad creative folx of every walk of life that live into a path of resistance/liberation. That kind of space.


So this is where I'm at right now. Welcome and thank you for reading; being with me even this far. Your presence here is a gift. I hope you see something of yourself reflected back to you, from me. If I do nothing else in this life, I will breed and breathe creativity into my community. Because expression is to know oneself as sovereign, and responsible. It's work to remember to render ourselves freer today than yesterday. And while these times we live in are trying on the soul and psyche there's refuge in the spirit of creativity. My art-prayers are with you on your creative journey too, and may you know yourself as a powerful creator.

All blessings be.
