Fresh Faces: Lori Diamond Art, Marking The Movement For Art and Charity

You look at the image above and see a plethora of euphoric visual symbols that all connect to elude an uplifting vibe. That is not by mistake. The painting above was created by wonderous artist, Lori Diamond in pursuit of bringing hope to the universe. She wants this painting, although physically abstracted to give a clear sense of hope, faith and life to ones around the world. Her deepest philanthropic passion is to contribute to the emotional and physical wellbeing of children suffering serious illnesses. She acknowledges that art is a very powerful concept that can impact one's state of mind to a great degree. The only issue is to open the eyes of society so that they can come to recognize this as well. That is why she is marking a movement through her artistic practice to spread hope throughout the world.

There is a very succinct connection between aesthetic value, cognitive value and spiritual value. 

The asthetic value of something is determined by how visually impactful it is. How does it catch your eye? Her art work presents blatant technical skill, use of softly saturated color and great pattern execution. 

The cognitive value of something is determined by what it makes you think. Does it turn geers in your head or are you left unaffected? Clearly, the composition above makes you think of many principles that could possibly be represented by the various visual metaphors. For example, the four diamonds in teh center are circling the focal poin, that is a sun-like object with a peace symbol at its core. One could interpret that this is meant to exemplify how an inner calm or tranquility can be equated to or superior to the possession of material wealth. Also, you could interepret that this could be implying that the possession of hope, peace and serenity is the greatest treasure possible, not materials.

Lastly, the emotional value that something gives is determined by how something makes you feel. Does the object evoke heavy emotions or does it not impact you at all? With the piece above, it sooths the onlooker and puts one at ease. The entire composition does nothing but relax the individual while simultaneously empowering and comforting them. 

This is just one of Lori Diamond's many pieces that she will be debuting over time. As said before, this is the mark of a movement. So, stay tuned for updates. For more information on her and her work, please visit the links below!

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
