Theme: Horizon for academy year 2018-2019
My interpretation to Horizon as follows:
Step 1: 18-09-2018
Step 2: 9-10-2018
Step 3: 12-12-2018 – Ratio 1: 1: words : colors
Studies with 3D accumulations & photos:
The tension between the inescapable or unavoidable:
I may have learned something about paintings in the past few years through the academic platforms.
I write texts without any training in this field but only within my feelings and limited knowledge, but I never gave much attention to my writings anyway. You may call them ‘poems’ or not but the texts have very much influences on my paintings.
Within my creativity, I now obviously see the link in relation of ratio’s between my writings and paintings!
As Leonardo da Vinci said “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
I can feel and see both in my own pallet.
In this theme horizon, I am stipulated or imposed myself in a line where my past, present and future blend together, always as nostalgia, where the images form within the words and colors as an abutment.
It accumulates more and more
concentrates as a rain forest in its core,
the way it always builds up its own piles
with its deep roots in underground of earth
or in the segments of my mind
there are no differences,
deep, thick, sometimes fungal
as nostalgia when the age ripens,
and let the longing more stable within,
makes colors in its every layers
as patterns of evidence of life
and sealed its mark
heavy, unsolved, complicated
even if it looks simple and stands in a line.
extracted from the memories of all kinds
as stamps of our own individual recital.
