Emily Minor

I am Mainā, a Toronto based artist, though I draw my inspiration from the world over. As an artist, I use both painting and poetry to radiate the euphoric madness that is life, lust and love. I lost myself to chaos for many years and through my art, I was found. With this artwork I aspire to help people see the true beauty in the chaos and madness that surrounds us, and to thrive from it. There is much serenity to be discovered in the vividness and intensity of the world's colors.

wimzē (whimsy)
Summer rain pours
Enchanting little drops
Breathing life into the petals
That hardened from the drought
When compassion towards yourself
Was merely just a thought
Whimsical pieces of the puzzle
Float into their eternal site
Kindness towards oneself
Is the key to a peaceful life.

Falling in love
Madly
With the chaos and the peace
Everything from you to me
I just want to be
And let be
To do me and push forward 
The passion in my soul has asked to be released
And I am allowing it.

To live is a concept so wild and free
Something that I struggled with
Silly me
I walked along the fire
Afraid to be me
Hand in hand with the devil
A detainee
It snickered and it snarled
As it held me undersea
I was chasing a way to reality
A spark set off
An inquiry
Asking why I was scared to be free
Like the swift turn of an ignition key
I had to find the best of me
A life long adventure it will be
But I will thrive, you will see.

Discovering the little intricacies in life
The ones that cause the world to feel lighter
Often I focused on the rain filled clouds
Preparing for them to pour
Carrying a weight
That I was never meant to hold
Each drop of rain is filled with hope
Freedom, growth and change
When the time is right
The sun will peek through again.

Walking through the forest, surrounded by tall fungus trees. Staring up at their vibrant gills, it's unlike anything I have ever seen. The mushroom stems are wonky, sprouting in unusual directions. A slight reflection shines from their caps, this surely wasn't on my map. The sky appears to be leaking as carrot colored lightning bolts strike. The face of a being peers through the sangria clouds, almost ghostlike. Speckles of rain begin to drop on my skin, but it immediately absorbs them. Oh, my head feels funny. All of a sudden it is sunny. Clouds fade before my eyes, revealing a moss sky. The spirit is staring right at me, its mouth open wide. Is this the thing responsible for this wild ride? Hiding behind mushroom scales, I see it make its way to me. "You don't need to hide", it whispers quietly. Claiming to be merely a figment of my imagination, it told me I'm on vacation and led me deeper into the forest. I must have fallen into the abyss and this is the illusionist.
