What's Up With the Molar Art?

Dental Art  ( My Molar Symbol) and Metaphysical Meanings have been a bit of an obsession for me. It's amazing how our teeth and jaw health impact our appetite for food and life. What we take through our mouths literally becomes us, so any trouble with our teeth limits our ability to grow and become larger than our problems. But it can go the other way as well. What comes from the heart is breathed to life through the language of words. What level of language one chooses to voice, can be a life-giving, breathe of fresh air or an onslaught of hatred and death. Either way, the teeth get hit first with the energy. They can be maintained, healed or destroyed that way.



For instance, tooth decay from irregular brushing or poor diet creates loss of teeth. But what else could it mean? Maybe one finds it hard to stick to routine and refuses to or doesn't know how to take care of one's long-term needs. Maybe one mistrusts authority, including their own. One becomes disconnected from life without teeth.

You can't eat or live, so allowing one's teeth to rot is a sign you give your power away.
It's time to make peace with your pricelessness. Find your purpose in life ad the courage to walk it.
You cannot be replaced and you deserve to be here. Spend more time outdoors and with people who love you no matter what.

How about grinding teeth? Maybe one is angry at not being able or allowed to communicate, be heard, or speak up. SO what happens physically? Weakened teeth, headaches, a stiff neck, limited bite, and lack of appetite.

Teeth signify natural truth, which belongs to exterior understanding and, in the opposite sense, the falsity which destroys this truth, is evident from the following passages in the Word.  This makes the life of this all about understanding.  They grind like a mill, preparing the food for the body's nourishment or the soul through wisdom. Check out "grinding of the teeth, knashing of the teeth" references in the Old Testament and other ancient texts.

The emptiness of teeth denotes scarcity of truth or "lack of bread." Tooth decay asks, "Are you biting off more than you can chew?"
Perfection?
Control?
Success?
Gluttony?
Pleasure?


In ancient Hebrew, the symbol of sin was the molar. It was called "Shin." We miss the mark. Think of archery. There is a target we aim for. We get close but rarely hit the center until we become masters at understanding the game. Everyone misses the mark in the game of life with many things. But are we strong enough to search for the truth,  learn the rules of this "game", the humility to accept, and the courage to stand by it and speak it when needed? If only we allowed the LIFE it breathed into ourselves and for others, the healing would show over time. That is my belief. Fear, Doubt, Pain, Death and Decay form over time in the self deception of living out lies. Speaking its language shows in the world one makes for oneself. If that could be exposed and left behind to greater existences for each person. Ready for that? It means changing from the inside out. That's the power behind the symbol of my molar. There it is.

Peace and Love.

Press Release for TITUS ANDRONICUS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus - 
a 21st century adaptation

In a world where forgiveness, grace, and patience in seeking truth are lost; Chaos, revenge,  blind justice and cruelty have no limits. 

Join us for an evening unique performance of live theatre with Shakespeare's brutally controversial play, TITUS. Cup-A-Jo Productions and Kim Barry Studio bring Shakespeare into the 21st century by blending performance art, an original live rock score created by Michael Kolczynski, and an interactive stage within the pop up summer studio, art installations, and gardens, SixTHreeFouR.  

Why Titus? Why more violence in today's climate where we can't read our Facebook feed or turn on the news without one more seemingly senseless act? Because Titus is not about violence it is about vengeance, it is about the mistaken acceptance that retribution is justice, and it is about the foundational and often forgotten truth that we always, always have a choice... and without us taking responsibility for that choice, without choosing against our baser evils, we are doomed to repeat that violence. Where there is a choice for vengeance, there is always a choice for grace, for forgiveness, for love. With our production of Titus, we want to unflinchingly show the responsibility of choice and the weight that choice carries. There is much evil in the world, but the slyest comes in the form of mistaken justice. And we can't show the virtue of grace... without the horror of vengeance. Forgive us.” - Joanna Lowe, Director

Featuring an incredible cast:
Brett Sullivan Santry as Titus 
Chuck Beikert as his loving brother Marcus 
Jessie Goodman as his beautiful daughter Lavinia
Chris Morriss as his militant son Lucius
Jill Bradshaw as his innocent grandson
Samantha A. Camp as the vengeful queen Tamora
Andy Hickly and Connor McNelis as her demented sons, Demetrius and Chiron
Christopher S Collier as her sadistic lover Aaron 
Everett Lowe as the emperor Saturninus
Bruce Story-Camp as Bassianus and more
Joanna Getting as the Nurse and more
Tonya Lynn as the Clown and more
Cup-A-Jo Productions was formed by performance artist and poet, Joanna Lowe. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Lowe captivates audiences through original performances and staged theater productions. Her interpretation of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus converges classic myth of the ages with truths, and half-truths of today.

Kim Barry founded pop up creative studios Suite 106 in Florida, West Eleven in Los Angeles, and most recently SixTHreeFouR in Pittsburgh, PA. Within her various spaces, she creates interactive environments that include paintings, sculptures, music, movement and installations. Her pieces connect inner myths and symbolism to our seemingly disconnected outer world. For, Titus Andronicus, she creates blurred spacial lines and timeless interactions for the performers and the audience. 

SixTHreeFouR is the summer pop up studio of artist, Kim Barry, located in East Liberty. Set within her family's property, it plays upon the shadows of 5 familial generations, historic structures, nature, and art installation. Within the space, she creates an experimental platform for her and invited creative guests to share intimate happenings with the community.
