ART SALONS offer stimulating conversations with other artists in the community. As a springboard to each of our explorations, professional artists from South Florida are invited to present their work, talk about what influenced them, and examine the work of influential artists showing in museums and galleries. Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. They’re also an opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and the sharing of useful resources.  Salons are facilitated by Elle Schorr.

Helen Kagan’s Paintings Took Miami by Storm – Now Showing at Art Synergy

Helen Kagan grew up in the former USSR, a communist State where oppression and control were a daily reality. In 1991 a quest for freedom led her to the US where she brought a Jewish heritage, a PhD in Science, Master’s in Psychology, and an unending thirst to explore life’s meaning.  Having lived and worked in VT, WI, MN, NJ, NY, FL, and equipped with another Masters degree, Helen spent much of her time as a social worker developing and leading programs and providing holistic services to those in need.

As both a therapist and an artist, Helen believes tragedy, pain and trauma can be healed with positive energy, love, and self-expression.  The Rickie Report is pleased to share Helen’s newest work during Art Synergy/Art Palm Beach at 2 locations: OSGS in Northwood and Continuum at 312 Clematis Street W. Palm Beach.  The details are in this article.

 

 

Meet Helen Kagan

 

 

 

 

Helen Kagan unveiling "Bridge To Hope"

Helen Kagan unveiling “Bridge To Hope”

 

Helen Kagan, PhD, a refugee from Russia, is a holistic therapist and artist. Her “Healing Arts” blends her own life experience into a visual form emphasizing the healing power of art.   Helen works mainly with oil but lately is experimenting with acrylic and mixed media. Her canvases are influenced by impressionism and mainly, expressionism. They are varied, vibrant, some are raw, some refined, all are intuitive.

 

 

 

Coming from a family of scientists, Helen was always fascinated by the left and right brain relationship. She’s been developing her unique technique and style in “Healing Arts” expressing the past, present and future with pure boldness and emotion, always looking for ways to communicate on levels often not yet understood.

 

 

"Sun Shower"

“Sun Shower”

 

 

Primarily self-taught, Helen’s been painting for as long as she remembers herself, since 2005 does it professionally. Her intention is to create a solid body of Healing Art to serve people and communities in need. She envisions her art to be placed in Hospitals, Medical Centers, Rehabilitation, Multicultural, Crisis Centers – to enhance healing and well-being. Helen believes in interconnectedness of physical, mental and spiritual. She believes her artwork can enhance healing process to those in need. Her vibrant art is a statement of her beliefs.

 

 

"Under the Bridge"

“Under the Bridge”

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Helen shares, “For many of us art is a spiritual path, a transformational process, a way of being.  Communicating on subliminal levels, my art delivers the message of being on a spiritual Journey. My “Healing Arts” – is my unique way to integrate expressive art and the art of healing”.

 

"Stairway to Heaven" (Energy Series)

“Stairway to Heaven” (Energy Series)

                 

She goes to explain, ” I believe that art heals.  I believe that art as a powerful form of self-expression becomes a vehicle for emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being.  Communicating on subliminal levels, my work delivers this message through positively charged intention, healing frequencies of color and energetically balanced composition. My canvases are varied, vibrant, some are raw, some refined, all are intuitive – bridges to the past, cities in the rain, street lights, domes, music, oceans, fields of sunflowers, moons, clouds, sunsets… However, the following themes are always present in my art – being on the Journey, moving towards the Light, awareness of ‘Here and Now’, and of course – ‘J’oie de vivre'”!

     

 

 

"Nostalgy"

“Nostalgy”

“I believe that tragedy, pain and trauma can be healed with beauty, positive energy, and self-expression. This is what I communicate through my art while reflecting my own colorful and deep perception of life, a desire to bridge the Realities and heal the Past.    I believe in mind-body-spirit connection. I believe art can enhance healing and promote well-being in a viewer.  My passionate art is a statement of my beliefs”, Helen tells The Rickie Report. 

                       

"Hurricane" (Energy Series)

“Hurricane” (Energy Series)

 

Helen  has a vast education including:  Spiritual Counselor & Holistic Healer certified by IM School of Healing Arts, NYC , Master Results Coach, NLP Trainer certified by CH Companies and Holistic Studies (Q-Gong, Psych-K, EFT Practitioner).  She is also a Certified Reiki Practitioner,   Polarity Practitioner (RPP) & Wellness Educator, certified by National Polarity Association,  MSW and  LCSW (NYS Licensed Clinical Social Worker).  Helen received her  MA  in Psychology, St. Petersburg State University, Russia and PhD  in Science, St. Petersburg State University, Russia.
