Rich in Spirit – Self-Discovery through Creative Expression in Worship and Prayer
About Anne Cameron Cutri (Erie, Pennsylvania Author)
Anne Cutri has been pursuing her artistic endeavors for about 30 years. Her work has always explored the inner landscape and the unseen. Mysticism a key component and of late, prophecy, which orchestrates the symbolic and energetic interpretation of her intimate relationship to the Sacred Trinity and biblical teachings. Her preferred medium is oil on canvas, often mixing with other mediums such as collage. Cutri has shown her work from Boston to Houston and points in between, and is mostly self-taught.
She is a member of Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA) and founded United Christian Artists Revolving Exhibitions (UCARE), as well as Artists Who Evangelize (AWE), which also stands for Art Worship Encounter, an arts ministry which she co-founded at her church in Erie, PA. Currently she is pursuing a graduate degree in Art Therapy, from St. Mary of the Woods, College founded by a pioneering nun in the late 1800’s. Her research in art therapy, and interest in theological and spiritual principles, continues to intersect.
Carl Jung having been raised in a Christian household, was ahead of his time. His search for the living God, and whose influence includes Emanuel Swedenborg and other deep thinking Christian mystics, shaped his psychological theories. Jung believed the lack of connection and resolution to their religion was the root to the problems of all patients over 35. Jung was also closely identified with the arts as a tool to individuation. With that in mind and the belief in the Holy Spirit to guide and heal, she is on a path to help herself and others discover the true self that God ordained, within. Art has the power to heal and transform. It can speak of things yet to come and things that come from within. Align yourself with the Holy Spirit, and you have a great adventure. My work is intuitive and attempts to go beyond traditional interpretations of the bible. To listen, hear, see the Holy Spirit through scripture and interpret its essence, not illustrate the words.
