Who would not be interested in the healing powers of creativity? Creating art pieces is not a concept thing, sometimes yes. Some people might see it like that. More, and especially for me, creating of expressive works is the translation of the inner part that cannot speak and wants to express itself. Through the expression it is also a kind of healing, and by that a therapy for yourself. Quite strong, not always understood by others, but always touching.
Here you can find one expressive painting I did some time ago
There is a quite unique and wonderful documentary on this topic. Please watch yourself.
What a beauty a garden is. How positive it can touches your soul and your emotions. There is so much beauty and inspiration coming from God’s creations that you watch humble how the various lives are growing and developing.
Is it not amazing how color can change your mood? While your inner part sometimes creates uneasiness, how wonderful those colors can make your other part more relaxed.
This truly touches my soul and leaves this colorful transformation to be seen by those who want to get inspired.
On another trip to Zurich I went to the old botanical garden. Several sculptures from Claire Ochsner were exhibited in open space. It is the combination of nature and human creations that makes such a place so unique. The garden environment is so inspirational and you really can feel the intense vibration. That inspired me for this painting, expressing the vibration I felt at that time.
Elements that are winding up and exposed to the open space, are seeking for upwards movement. Captured in this sketchy painting.
During one of my recent stays in Zurich, Switzerland, I took the chance to visit the “African Masters” exhibition in the beautiful museum Riedberg. The museum is nicely located with a huge garden not far away from downtown.
The old african masters were truly artists with a personal touch to the way they carved the wood. More than 100 years later, the names of the masters are not always knows, but you can see the uniqueness of the works.
I felt very touched by the tribal masks in wood. immediate after my visit, I did some sketches in watercolor on paper.
