The poetry, written by Nuit, acted as an inspiration for the work of other artists. The poetry represents the element of Earth, that is the Mother of all we know and experience, that within its womb carries Spirit going forth into the magic of manifestation. Jason's paintings represent the element of Air, that has no shape and is incapable of a fixed form. It is a symbol of thoughts. Christine's element is Fire that is boundless and invisible, and is a parching heat that consumes all. Within its highest manifestation Fire becomes Divine Love. Jeni's element is Water that carries within: a Rhythm of Creation, and a strength of Tantric flow. Water symbolizes the world of emotions.

''Art of 4 Elements'' was published by Artof4Elements, the publisher of all ''Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training'' books, in 2014. The following are interviews done during the exhibition launch in St. James in Valletta. Art of 4 Elements Spiritual Poetry Book Launch

The Sunday Times in April 2014 by Josianne Facchetti Interview with Authors of Art of 4 Elements Spiritual Poetry Book

A long, beautiful, red skirt caught Jeni Caruana’s eye from a multitude of people walking down Republic Street, Valletta, Malta. Less than an hour later she met Jason Lu and the girl in the red skirt – Christine Cutajar – while they were discussing the Art of 4 Elements project. Nataša was here too and she asked Jeni if she too wanted to take part in this artistic expression. When things are presented to you in a way that feels right, I go with the flow. These were one of the first steps of a multimedia project called The Art of 4 Elements – the project where 4 artists got together to create a book, an exhibition, a spiritual journey.

They transformed the inspiration from the poetry written by Nataša Nuit Pantović into their own artistic expression. The aim was to follow their hearts, explore their capabilities and reach their highest emotional, mental and spiritual potential through art and also inspire other researchers. Together, they have created a book containing over a hundred of Nataša’s poems where each of the poem has a corresponding drawing, painting or photograph.

The golden thread weaving in and out of each poem are the 4 elements: earth, water, air and fire.

Earth Poems: Nataša Pantović Nuit
Earth represents the poems, fire represents the life force, air represents meditation and mental work and water represents the flow of emotions and letting go.

When I asked Nuit how she felt about for the first time exposing her poems and expressing her inner thoughts and feelings to the public she answered – I am trembling, but my tremble is part of the growth and the process of growth.

The artists found the poems emotive, inspiring and full of spiritual force. Most of them are about spiritual growth and positive thinking.

Nuit Water Poems: Jeni Caruana

Water kind of chose me. I paint the human figure a lot. I am obsessed with the human figure. I draw and paint dancers and people in motion. There is something very fluid about dances and the way they move. So my paintings in this exhibition are a series of dances in motion which I chose to paint in ink and water because this medium is very fluid and flowing. It is almost uncontrollable. I am drawing with a brush with ink and water and it just takes on its own. It is practically water. You shouldn’t be too much in control when you are working alongside the medium. That is when the exciting things happen. I just went with the flow. Art is for looking at the world and saying how beautiful it is.

Jeni first drew dancers in motion and then ‘married’ them to the 40 of Nataša’s poems.

Nuit Air Poems: Paintings by Jason Lu

Jason Lu used oil paint and oil pastel directly from the tube. I tried not to mix colour to keep it pure because I believe every colour and pigment emanates a different vibration and energy and vibration in its pure form can leave a direct impact. The poems I chose are so positive that they inspired me to use bright pure saturated colours.

The themes in the poems I chose are of finding the freedom within us to love, to liberate and take away the baggage or layers accumulated from parents, society and school. Everyone is intrinsically pure and full of love but it is the fear gathered along the way that blocks this love.

Through the air element in the poetry I worked on letting go. I soaked myself day and night with the inspiration I got from each poem. Sometimes it took a couple of days to turn this abstraction of poetry into my reality and my reality in art form can also be an abstraction to the viewer. The thought process was like a therapy, healing me from inside. I felt like a big onion taking off one layer at a time. So the air element for me is elevating.

I did my best to bring this out in my paintings through the flow, lines and curves. There is a process which works on the subconscious level and is realised once the work is finished. If an artist is honest about the creating process, it should be a reflection of what is going on inside. This experience helped me to grow on the spiritual, love and meditative level. Sometimes it is the process that is important in the growth not the actual work. It was a great journey for me.

Nuit Fire Poetry, Photography Christine Cutajar

In Rumania just before I came back to Malta I woke up in the middle of the night thinking I want to do something with my photographic skills. The next day I was invited by Nataša to take part in this exhibition. When you feel and really want something, it happens.

Christine says that there was no doubt that her element is fire. This element reflects my driving force, need for creativity, passion, taking action, love for life and the change that this energy brings.

Life is like fire stages. These stages are reflected in spiritual growth – the highs and lows to reach our ultimate state and divine love. This is what I experienced while producing the photos for this book and exhibition.

It took me a very long time to choose the poems but I got a lot of inspiration from them and at times the poems gave me a voice for feelings I had, but did not know how to express. Then the poetry inspired me to translate this into shots I took of nature. It was a growth and a relief that I finally expressed myself.

Each artist chose 40 poems and produced 40 drawings, paintings and photographs related to and inspired from the poems. Some of these were exhibited at St James Cavalier from the 27th April till mid May.
