The Spirit of Discovery by Debbie Arambula

Since I was a child, I loved making things with my hands & always collected little romantic objects in my travels with my family. In fact, I had the coolest restaurant menu collection & old glass bottle collection on the block. Each mixed media collage is the collection of the deepest poetry of my life.

The Spirit of Discovery was inspired by Shakespeare. And a play that I saw at a theter in San Jose where I was the featured artist. The director wanted me to create a piece that described the play. 

“Shakespeare wrote most of his plays during the reign of Queen Elizabeth (1558 – 1603), who allowed theater and drama to flourish, but forbade the subject of politics or religion on stage. As for the era’s societal restrictions, a female actor would be considered an abomination, and so men and boys performed the roles of both sexes. England lagged far behind European countries in accepting female actors.

Shakespeare never shied away from confusing gender-swaps and played with the all-male mandate to create cross-dressing roles that were both challenging and entertaining.”

In the play the lead actor struggled with his identity through out the entire play. But his ability to accept himself in the end was beautiful. I am sorry to say I cant remember the play... Sorry!

For me the truth in the beauty of a person, is who you are and what they stand for & how they demonstrate LOVE and live their life. Kindness, compassion, integrity, ethics, morals. These are the true character of a person. The true beauty.

My grandmother Dorothy, used to say “Beauty is only skin deep”. I so agree with her. Beauty comes from the heart and the intentions behind the action.

Life is about discovery and when we truly accept our self we find more admiration for yourself as well as others. 

The original was my first a Mixed Media, Paper Collage, besides the first one I did in Kindergarten. As an artist, my job is to continue to explore new ways to communicate my emotions, my thoughts, my inspirations to you.
