Cheselyn Amato presents the Chaya Chesed Love Life Codex, a re-presentation of three decades of her visual work cast in the light of what she has learned about All That Is. Cheselyn has been engaged in an irrepressible and irresistible quest to describe her experience of being. She has walked deep into her unknown and wrestled to release herself from self-definition that arrives from the forms and shapes given to her from without – inherited and learned. She has been engaged in encountering her mind and in that encountering to distill, if and as can be, awareness, sensation, experience that feels and seems unfettered by what has been given. This enterprise has been driven by a desire that has remained unimpeded – to be in balance and guided by love. She wishes this for herself and for each and every human being who so seeks. While it has been said that all has been written, it has also been said that freewill has been given. She is at this moment no longer compelled to deconstruct contradictions with the intention of solving, resolving or dissolving them nor to assimilate them as inviolably beyond comprehension or irresolvable. This visual chronicle – often called a retrospective exhibition – presents her life-long investigative encounter with being about being to facilitate being as fully as she imagines. You are invited to encounter her encounter over the span of four decades as it has unfolded right up to this moment.

Cheselyn Amato is a New Jersey girl with NYC at her core. She spent 20 years in Chicago before moving to Northern California where she currently lives in Davis. She earned her BA in studio art and comparative religious studies at Brown University and an MFA in drawing, painting and new genres at Tyler School of Art of Temple University. She has taught art and art appreciation for over thirty years. Cheselyn is an interdisciplinary visual artist/poet/performer and transformation experience instigator/designer for sublimity, awe and delight. Adding to her toolbox, Cheselyn is emerging as a spiritual accompanist to individuals and their loved ones during times of sickness, dying and death. She will begin graduate studies at Pacific School of Religion/Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley in Fall 2017 where she will be focusing on art, spirituality, consciousness, human potential, transformation, evolution, and social change. She will also serve as Spiritual Care Provision Resident at UC San Francisco. As a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant, Cheselyn designs and facilitates transition and transformation experiences and ceremonies for any stage along the way of being and becoming.
