Moriah M. Mylod is an Expressionist Painter, Mixed-Media Artist, Art Psychotherapist, Lover of Jungian/Depth Psychologies, Poet & Mystic. Moriah practices as a clinical art therapist in the mental health field providing art psychotherapy services to adolescent mothers & adult mothers in a residential treatment facility in Somerset, NJ. Moriah primarily practices art psychotherapy in a residential treatment milieu, but first and foremost she is an artist working in her home-studio, Birds in The Attics located in Phillipsburg, NJ where she is occupied with painting on many surfaces such as traditional canvas, mirrors, wood blocks and creating ephemeral art in earth mandala assemblages locally and within the tri-state area. The last few years she has been in a season of creation and hopes to exhibit in the 2020/2021 year. Her working body of art is a culmination of a various painting and mixed media applications where these works are enmeshed in a sea of wordless consciousness, designed structures of the unseen divine within that invites the viewer to swim in the reparative use of untamed colors & paradoxical design. Her works of prayer, deep meditations, peace, memory & of infinite love will shift and inform the viewer’s own awareness--as well as the space it inhabits.

  The Witness: Why do you cry? The Face: Because, I see. The Witness: What do you see?   ::  The Face stares back for a time where The Witness thought to itself ‘until Kingdom-Come, when will it speak?” The Face’s eyes weld up with the deepest sorrow yet the

SAD SANDWICHES: Baloney & Plastic Wrapped Cheese, no mayo by Moriah M. Mylod

Seeing my mother standing there with all of her grandchildren looking more infantile Walking around, carrying the infant that is me Wishing I had a dad that took us fishing not teaching us anything about how to fish Wishing I had a dad… — Finally in time, I have created


In my dreams we were in Charleston imagining apparitions and clowns I wonder how we could devise plans to become ghosts together in a tourist town to scare off kids and lovers alike And seeing how they still wanted us around even The devil horned The pale-blue eyed The predatorial


Life is unbearable Then, it is not It’s like walking on sandpaper coping with the pain of emotions of every moment Waning on you, everyday Wearing away on you, everyday Into a person you hardly recognize, anymore Who are you? Existing on this plane, hollow inside You are not your

ICARUS: MELTY WINGS by Moriah M. Mylod
