MITZI BIDNER

By Shawn Bidner

At almost 90 years old, artist Mitzi Bidner says, “I am now producing the best body of my work, and this in turn has given me the best work for my body, mind, spirit, and health.”

Wintering in San Miguel Mexico for the past 20 years, Bidner’s outdoor courtyard studio is weather perfect every day, which as she states, always helps her accesses the infinite, to let it flow through her temporal body, when she paints.

“It seems to me that the last two winters I have done my best body of work. At my age it’s a race against the clock,” Bidner says with a gleam in her eye and a chuckle. “When you love doing something as much as I do, the energy field and vibrations are transferred onto my canvas as expressions of a higher realm, as I am—without thought, weight, or body. What a great place to be: Nirvana, au natural.”

Bidner’s summers are spent in Canada on a large country estate tucked away deep in the woods. She has a studio here and paints every day during the spring, summer, and fall.

Many of her works are in museums. Collectors of her work have also donated her paintings to men’s and women’s shelters. These works are where the love flowing from her works are needed and greatly appreciated, she feels.

But Bidner’s art does not restrict itself merely to painting: in 2007, she formed a film company called Art Today USA and Art Today Canada. During the winter of 2007, which she spent in San Miguel, her son Brady did the videography and editing, while she curated and directed over 20 films in San Miguel. Together, they filmed many local and international artists, such as the sculptor Nunez, the painters Chi Kaplan, Toller Cranston, Lena Bartula, Cabrera, and Ed Swift, just to name a few.

These films were shown twice at the Biblioteca with the artists present, answering questions and talking to the audience. Proceeds of the CDs sold at these events were donated to the Biblioteca. These films can be viewed on YouTube/arttodaycanada.

Bidner feels that love is always about giving. “My paintings are my expressions of that infinite love. I have never underestimated love’s power. Feel it in my paintings, and may love be with you always.”

She also says her studio, here in San Miguel at the Quinta Loreto Hotel, is open to all. Just call her at 415 156 9341to make an appointment to view her works and chat.
