Are we three layers?
Closest … inner thoughts tightly wound ball of string.Knotted thick lines.Frights layered with memories tumbling through ongoing liturgical wall. Stories, moving pictures of after, here and hereafter.
Farthest … expanse of parts.Children caper and cower.Guides, angels, spirit, God.Comfort, celebrate, create.De se sentir, zu fühlen,感じること, أنتشعر.
In Between … conduit to the little world.Surface scratched, shiny, sticky or slick.Halves of a clam, open and close, open and close, open and close twixt love and fear.
A card created in collaboration with Connie, her idea of different layers lead me to the analogy for the human experience.Effects of our thoughts and ego (that which is closest).Our inner children and greater forces (that which is farthest) includingtranslations of French, German, Japanese, and Arabic to “feel”.And how we relate to the world in our actions (in between).The blue expanse represents the “farthest”, here a rapid free flow of paint allowed figures to emerge (children, guides, spirits).The yellow clam-like shell is the “in between” allowing for an opening and closing to the outer world creating both boundaries and walls.The inner pearl surrounded by a tight weave of string holds that which is “closest”, a collection of past memories, imaginary projections and each current breath.
