Beatrix Ost and son
ON MOTHERHOOD: BEATRIX OST AND SON
Artist, designer, author, filmmaker, and all around Renaissance Woman.
Skin cancer left a Z-shaped scar on her forehead. Embracing this personal horror, Beatrix turned it into beauty by tattooing it light purple. It was this concept of transformation that led us to create our first mantra bangles : "in your body is a good place to be." Beatrix has been an ARTICLE22 collaborator ever since. Born in Germany, she lives between New York and Charlottesville which she considers her main home today.
"The experience of love so extraordinary and deep, I never knew it existed."
Home is where my work is and my beloved family, some of them! Charlottesville.
On a formative memory—
Yes, my trip to Tibet! Consequently, Tibetan Buddhism!
On work and purpose—
I'm an artist with many faces and I always was— I can express myself in multiple ways! Right now, I'm working on canvas, showing my concerns about our Patient Mother Earth.
"I am— That is what I felt and it never left— a deep gratitude to the life itself!"
On the intersection of motherhood and work—
I am— That is what I felt and it never left— a deep gratitude to the life itself!
To your young children, you are a teacher— when they become older, you become the listener, and you learn from them!
‘‘I express my love by honoring every moment with that person— being as intimate as possible!"
I will express my love by honoring every moment with that person— being as intimate as possible!
My 7 year old self— she knew!!
"What matters most is living close to my family, with them! I had my house burn down with everything I adored burning with it - I consider myself free of ownership!"
On the next 12 months—
Exhibiting my paintings, titled: the Omnivorous Natural History
On what matters most—
What matters most is living close to my family, with them ! I had my house burn down with everything I adored burning with it— I consider myself free of ownership!
ARTICLE22 is my great love— each piece is a reminder to turn horrors into Beauty, to help people finding a better life. It is my lifetime devotion!
