Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts Exhibition Space
Brock Visual Art student Lisette Costanzo presents an exhibition consisting of paintings, drawings and installations that were inspired by La Magaria (Italian for witchcraft), metaphysics, and the divine.
“Costanzo has worked diligently for the past eight months to bring creative and intellectual acuity to her subject of exploration,” said David Vivian, Director of the MIWSFPA. “This often solitary experience of a very personal exploration in the painting studio was guided by the Faculty mentorship of professors Amy Friend and Murray Kropf.”
La Magaria, Italian for ‘witchcraft,’ is the observation of nature, the bridge between the physical and spiritual, and the reverence of the Divine Feminine (Gaia) within everyone, explains Costanzo. She describes the exhibition as “the embracing of La Magaria and the divine inner spark.”
Prominent in most works from the La Magaria is a black obsidian ball, which represents the balancing of celestial power. Costanzo, who is in her final year of Italian Studies and Visual Arts at Brock, is an intuitive artist and reiki master who has studied metaphysics for nearly two decades.
