I don’t know about you, but these days my reference points are disappearing. What used to work, no longer does. The old familiar ways are loosing its grip. Even the past seems to be just that; past.
The paradoxes of life are clearly visible in my creative process, in the studio, in action. Integrating the dance of paradoxes.
Dancing between stability of composition and fluidity of movement. Lightness and depth, freedom and control of the medium and tools . My paintings come in bursts. I have to trust this great dynamic that I am part of.
Trust, that this all things unspoken can somehow be conveyed through suggested lines, fragments of text and layers of paint.
Live like your hair is on fire, yet in a state of total ease!
Thanks for the inspiration from great artist like Cy Twombly.
The piece startled the musical world of Brahms’s time and was well received despite its depth and absolute seriousness. Brahms was able to capture deep feelings in music that show inventiveness in style but never violate the basic principles of composition.
As in the visual arts the ability to feel deeply and express directly is imperative.
My german father came to mind, who had always scolded me: “You are too sensitive!”.
Decades later I remain grateful for the gift of sensitivity, the ability to listen with every cell of my being. Feeling with the heart, not just reacting from an emotional place. Forget about technique, forget about your troubles, forget about money. Let go of your reference points and next time life offers you a chance to feel deeply – take it!
Allow yourself to dissolve in the present moment. Enjoy the silence, your own depth of being and your life.
I would like to share this short video with you, the ending is amazing….
