To paint 

is like a ritual for me.

It is the laying bare of myself.

Standing in or opposed to a surface, a space, a ground, on which to communicate and extend my being onto.

My gesture, my mark, my emotion, my thought.

It is the soft caress or sometimes over eager

gushing of emotions, tearing out from inside of myself.

In the discourse of presence, happening right in-front of myself.

The discourse of me represented through colours, form structure, composition, and what unfolds for me to see. 

Painting, like the moment of life.

Surrenderance to the structure, the surface, sometimes already having marks on it, coming in, to treasure what inspires me, what I still want to discover to find or what I want people to find inspiration in. 

But in the end it is not about the other, it is just about you, about me, and that moment of being free.

Of allowing nothing else, but but mixing and choosing colours, tracing form and textures intuitionally. 

Nothing purer, this being my kind of meditation. 

Like life it...

Es geht um das Gedankengut was durch Kunst und Musik stimuliert wird 

Die Fähigkeiten des Geistes werden beflügelt durch die Entwicklung des Verstandes anhand von Sinnes Wahrnehmung 

Verständnis für die Substanzen und Materien um uns in- und materiel welche das sich immer verändert und weiter went. 

Eine nicht Sterbende Wesenheit die sich formt aus der Natur und unserer Kulturen welche unberechenbar sich entfaltet dadurch das die Zügel der Korruption in der Hand des Zerstörers anstatt des Heilers des Schamanen Mutter Erde’s Untertanen, liegen.

Nein anstatt  faszinierend zu beobachten der Tanz der Unterdrückung

So viel Schmerz und Qual

Und wozu, es sonst, doch nur ein wiederholendes Muster ist

In welchem wir uns verheddern um Frau zu lernen und Fäden anders zu weben. 

Im Bewusstsein und dem respect 

Wie ein Heiliger Schwur

Das jede Tat

Jeder Atemzug 

Stehst dem wohl unser Mutter Erde zusagt

Somit ist Kunst und Musik

Musik und Kunst unsere Culture

Den sie atmet die Erfahrungen aus die und sensibilisier...

it is as if I am suspended in silence the serenity cradling me and it's the torrent carrying me and its currents like the kiss of the first rays of the sun on the drops of dew gathering on the tips and surfaces of Nature's Beauty that moment it is it is it is as if I am suspended in silence Serenity prattling me and it's the tour and Karen me and it's Clarence like the kiss of the first rays of the Sun on the drops of dew gathering on the tips and surfaces of Nature's Beauty it is as if I'm suspended in silence the serenity rattling me image that orange caring me and its currents like to kiss of the first rays of the Sun on the drops of Dew

 it is as if I'm suspended in silence 

the serenity craddling me amidst a torrent carrying me in its current

like the kiss of the first rays of the Sun 

like the drops of dew Gathering on the tips and surfaces of Nature's Beauty 

that moment of breath, what timelessness seems to hold before a new day 

a new adventure unfolds

 the steps which will lead...

I can't help but feel sad

For a home a seed 

A place I had but lost instead 

Nostalgia before even having Yet arrived 

While at the same time in the knowledge 

That right now a different landscape should reveal and prosper infront 

Of my eyes  

To be able to excavate space for my soul

If this life here is meant to again be embraced and not withhold 

The valleys will open and caress me in their folds 

Give me the soil

To grow permanently 

But right now travelling 

Transient to collect the nutrients for the future I want to shape for me 

Needing to detach 

To give new room to breathe 

Surrender 

Allow to be 

Don't weep for what isn't but for what is yours to keep 

----

So many people here to see 

So many and yet in this short amount of time 

Only a few time to see

With landscapes which always 

Forever inspire me 

April 4, 2017

Allow all your feelings 

After all the echo is

What will be strengthening and healing 

Excavating the depth of your being 

April 4, 2017

See it with detachment 

Once again as a tourist to everyday of life 

Experiencing everything 

As rare and fresh 

Since never knowing what days I will live again 

See it all in relativity 

Perspective of an eagle in the air 

Lion in the Prärie

And dolphin in the sea  

Surrendering in the path always unveiling 

Unknown 

A treasure shaping itself freely to the things I attract and seed 

Don't allow your heart to be heavy 

There is no reason for it to be 

All is just a journey of learning 

Soaking up like a sponge the information I perceive 

To pour it into life as soon as the knowledge prespirates from the experience and conceived  

April 4, 2017

Don't let the uncertainty pain you

Let it give you flight 

Don't let your home 

So long and evermore 

But not yet home 

Hurt you 

But inspire you 

If meant to be 

You ll come back after what you need to experience is through 

For now while in endless love 

Harden just a bit 

So the joy can prevail 

And the pain you can persist 

Some things must die to be reborn and lived again 

Just deeper and in greater ability and recognition of opportunity 

Be malleable to the life 

You are right now 

Called to live

Don't be sad

But soak up the people and place you have 

Because in your heart 

Certain love exists 

Even if in reality it is not currently allowed to be lived

The eyes the gates to the soul.

My soul like the ocean.

The moods and currents guided by the sun and wind,

circulating free, embraced and elevated by life's gravities.

The symmetry of being,

The ebb and flow, the ying and yang, the black, white and colour.

I am, the duality of me.

I am having a wonderful experience in Peru 

The people in cusco have been more then moving and now in Machu Picchu the kindness moves me to tears

Everything from the traditional locals to foreigners have been embracing and welcoming in every way

Even my hospital stay was more pleasant then all medical experiences in Europe and even more comfortable then some hotels I have stayed in.

The generosity and care

The wish to help and know 

To show the treasures lying openly hidden waiting to be discovered 

I am grateful 

Just purely grateful 

I met new people and new places I utterly love 

I am thankful to be discovering a culture which treasures nature like I do with every thought

Never daring to compare but just honoured to tread where a culture once stepped which knew how to fruit from rather then intersect or resist the magic of existence 

The ancient sediments, plants and knowledge my being feels and sees

Informing me and the quality of life I hope one day can again be 

In some areas of this earth ind...

my whole body is the tool

the use of space on a surface, in a space

equates to the importance of using oneself in space.

realising fundamentals such as composition, perspective, texture will give one the sensibility to apply that knowledge to areas of life and living 

teaching the art of creation teaches the art of presence

an interdisciplinary approach and use of material to express ideas, sentiments or to process experience, is important and symbiotic to the interdisciplinary structure of life

i believe that the individual and community is the artwork constructed out of the process

like an artwork the human being undergoes process of creation and destruction to become a rendered piece or living artwork

i love to explore with material from different sectors of our infrastructure, inventing new forms to realise presence giving me the experiences my senses are after

i like to reapropriate matter for the experience

weather it be from construction, food, 

key for me is the experience

feeling

i believe...

The attitude of creating is like the attitude you have toward life

I believe that through expressing digesting and exemplifying oneself through art

One not only discovers material and visuals in process but also ones own interaction throughought the process

From the whole array of emotions to thoughts and reflections and physicality involved in creation, it encourages the acquainting and understanding with oneself. Relation is found to the macro image of oneself in life. 

October 10, 2016

the importance of exposing the individual to the senses through artistic exploration, to give room for understanding the self, material process, therefore the workings of the natural and human made systems and infrastructures around us.

with creative process realising the potential of the individual, the local and global community, through realising how it has shaped our existence from the first cave drawings to contemporary, art, design, economy, culture, music and politics.

I am at peace with everything that may come 

With everything that is 

It is how it is meant to be

So I smile 

And open my eyes

To see

The beauty of the moment 

As it is 

By itself 

In communication with the past and future

But the present is what is nurtured 

Not forgotten 

In the minds game 

Not to see the beauty

But to seek instead to be

In the moment 

Open 

And peacefully 

Feeling all come through 

The knowledge the remaining residue

Painting

Left and right

Black and white 

Ying and yang 

Left hand right hand

Composition communicated through both hands in dialogue with each other 

Structures of right and left like the two hands on a piano 

As if conducting the visual space like the sounds from a symphony 

The orchestration of a journey over time captured on the same surface moving in time through layers in the same moment but not traveling across moments besides in capture of videography or passing of time 

Until the equilibrium or peace 

Beginning to end of the piece is reached 

Expressing with both halts 

Of body, mind, heart and soul 

During mark 

Sound is excerpted

Assure and heighten presence through stimulated awareness of the senses  

The canvas on the ground catching the history, the oath of its creation in a parallel language to the painting and performance. Eventually turning into a painting itself through observation accenting, emphasising and cradling its dimensions.
