Aingeal Rose and Ahonu interview Denise Kester, artist and author of "Drawing On The Dream".
Denise Kester is a working studio artist who has been exhibiting her work for over thirty years. She is a sought after teacher of printmaking, painting and art process, including book making, collage, and assemblage art, presenting workshops and classes in Washington, California, Georgia, New York, and Oregon. She lives in Ashland, Oregon.
How does a twenty-first-century woman living in rural southern Oregon enter the spiritual realm of the Dreamtime and what impact does it have on her life? Denise Kester is an artist and art teacher whose inner dream life is populated by a host of profound characters (brown bears, black crows, blue monkeys, sea turtles, and rabbits among others) who guide Denise through a difficult year of artistic creation as she stares down at a deadline for an important exhibit. Drawing on the Dream is part instruction for artists but even more a profound illumination on the way of the artist. The book includes Kester's brilliant monoprints in all stages of process to completion and the stories or poetry that inspired or illuminate the work. Kester writes about the struggles and the triumphs that occur as the deadline approaches. She asks the question “do I make the art or does the art make me?”
In her Foreword, bestselling author Jean Houston (Jump Time, The Possible Human observes: "As you read, see, and enjoy the riches contained in this book you too may discover, with such wonder and astonishment, that the dreamtime lives within you. For you are in the presence of Denise Kester who has tapped into the source of creativity and thus, is herself, a Source-rer."

Aingeal Rose & I attended a workshop recently. Among the many glorious beings present there was a young lady who was known to us only as Ponder. And boy, did she ponder. Her thoughts went higher and deeper like a great river of emotion and her reflections on what we consider ordinary everyday life shocked us into a strange kind of something.
Aingeal Rose & I thought long and hard over what to call this piece. The opening lines of Ponder’s monologue suggested we call it, Lord, Your Name Tastes Like Shit! But we decided to call it simply, "The Ponder Monologue"!
There are no need for apologies for this piece. Even the wind noise in the microphone and the rustle of the leaves in the trees (which would normally have been a distraction and not even present in a studio setting) came at key moments in the monologue as if the artist and her spoken words were stirring up the wrath of God.
At other times, the sun cast a glint across the camera lens as if in answer to her prayer, or as a visual acknowledgement of divine presence.
We believe this young lady will be heard about more widely in the future as our world embraces a new way of thinking and of being.
It needs no further explanation. Just watch and listen.
