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...

Allow all your feelings 

After all the echo is

What will be strengthening and healing 

Excavating the depth of your being

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

I create like a performance artist 

I mark like an expressionist 

I draft like a surrealist 

I shade like a cubist 

I shape space like an architect

I use artwork as sculpture 

And space like an installation 

I paint light and shadow 

I pushing and pulling dimension 

Every mark needing to be touched either by attention and or mark

To acknowledge, emphasise its presence

From the floor 

To the wall 

To the floor 

To the wall

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.

Remaining humble and grateful for treading whichever way may come. I will keep worshiping what drives and inspires our existences, seeing the beauty in soil, sun, water and wind. 

I know that my journey will lead me and I will see the might of flight but in the ground and the sky equally. To be in peace with the binds and opportunity of gravity, treading amongst the flora and fauna, while frolicking in the breath of gazing at or soaring through appearing and disappearing clouds around me, hugging me, while I sail through the path meant for me.

With the intended gesture and mark in art making I want to advocate that the same attention be given to decisions and actions made in daily life.

Through the placement of marks, the layers, the colour line and tone created, is like your canvas, where the atmosphere, the place, the people, most important the nature and infrastructure, the palette which you choose and interact with around you.

The shapes,

the structure,

the inner and outer surfaces of Nature

Constructing us.

We, animals, species, part of the whole.

Just one, of nothing that we own

but born to protect,

not to condone, 

the treasure all species call their home.
