Movement of time and space
Expansiveness of sky
Mysteries of the night
Hope in tiny green leaves
Quietude of shelter
Intuitive sense of hiding
The poetry, writings and art of:
Henry David Thoreau
…a monk should live in a world where there is neither passage of time nor length of time. He should live a life that is not measured by the calendar. A sense of beauty, similarly, is timeless: it may be said to exist at this very instant, unbounded by past or future, and a beautiful object may be said to exist on this very spot, unbounded by right or left.
-Soetsu Yanagi, The Unknown Craftsman
|Creating images and objects of beauty and visual poetry that express reverence offers me grounding. Enough time has passed by in my creative life to notice that I spiral through ideas and concerns. I discover tiny roots of an idea were hidden in previous works, but have emerged in a different way. Completely understanding a narrative while creating is not important. I’ve learned to not question the internal juxtaposition of imagery, to listen and let the work lead me. A conversation with paper, wax, branches, brush, pen, saw and twine.
