#183 Nina Isabelle – Artist, Thinker, Observer

Today’s guest is the profoundly talented Nina Isabelle. She is a process based artist working with perception, action, language, and phenomena. Her practice is a method to sort and solve the inconsistencies of language, memory, and form, and she makes paintings, drawings, photographs, video, sculpture, sound, performance and writing as inquiry into how sensory perception functions as the impetus for action, reaction, response, and choice making in art and life.

Her work has been presented at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York City, The Queens Museum as part of Emergency Index Documentation Discussion, Judson Memorial Church, Grace Exhibition Space, and ABC No Rio in Exile at Bullet Space in NYC with Feminist Art Group, as well as at Para//el Performance Space and The Ear in Brooklyn, NY. Internationally her projects have been presented at Czong Institute for Contemporary Art in Gimpo, South Korea, The Unstitute in Catalunya, Spain, Bangkok Underground Film Festival in Thailand, and NA Gallery in South Korea. Nationally her work has been shown at The San Diego Art Institute, The New School’s exhibition at The Bushwick Collective, Roman Susan in Chicago, IL, and CX Silver Gallery in Brattleboro VT, among others.

In 2018 she founded Three Phase Center for Collaborative Art Research & Building in Stone Ridge, NY where she facilitates, collaborates with, and documents the work of process based conceptual and performance artists. She’s continually motivated to work, present projects, facilitate, and collaborate with artists and idea people of any sort.

Today we talk about her upbringing be tossed in the air lots by acrobats and gymnasts and how her childhood set her up for being unmotivated by external validation or approval. This made for challenges in school, but seems to allowed for a vibrant life where she is guided by what is fun and fulfilling. We discuss some of the pursuits of her art in solving inconsistencies in language, memory and form, how perception is imperfect and malleable and several intersections between her work and thought processes and quantum physics. I try to keep up!

#174 Memorial Day Musings with the Words of Marion Woodman

Hello and Happy Memorial Day! Today I spend some time honoring those who’ve served and set the stage for thinking of a better way of resolving conflict. First part is really stepping into the Chrysalis so that we can re-emerge as something new, a society with a greater balance between the feminine and the masculine, but first I offer some thoughts on the patriarchal nature of war and the military including an analysis of the language used that is unsurprisingly phallic in nature. In honor of the Chrysalis and the feminine, I read from Marion Woodman’s The Pregnant Virgin and also little snippets from Dancing in the Flames. I’d love to hear your thoughts about all of this!

#121 JoAnn Stevelos “Public Health Advisor, Researcher and Speaker”

Today I am honored to welcome JoAnn Stevelos to the show. A public health advisor, researcher and speaker, she started out working in a virology lab and has since worked for startups and nonprofits to prevent cancer, type 2 diabetes and other chronic illnesses, and is now presently the Executive Director for the Coalition for Supportive Care of Kidney Patients at the School of Nursing at George Washington University. She is a musician, playwright and writer who has used both her professional and creative skills in her work to prevent child violation, trauma, and sex trafficking, as well as to help political activists who have survived prison and torture receive the psycho-social services needed to help them reintegrate into society. She is published widely including a book about her own story as a victim, survivor, and advocate of child sexual abuse by clergy titled, Howard Be Thy Name.

Today we talk about some difficult yet important conversations like child sexual abuse, grooming of communities by abusers, childhood obesity, young male sexuality, pornography, and early childhood intervention to prevent abuse. JoAnn shares about her creative endeavors which have helped her do some pretty difficult work over the years, how her work with the Coalition has been affected by COVID-19, public health in light of what we’re experiencing with COVID including an article she wrote about Helping Child Abuse Victims During COVID-19, and one of her favorite subjects, HOPE! She’s truly a well of profound wisdom and a force of positivity whose story I am so happy to be able to share.

Thanks JoAnn, can’t wait to follow along in all your creative endeavors!
