I would like to describe the simplest emotion
joy or sadness
but not as others do
reaching for shafts of rain or sun
I would like to describe a light
which is being born in me
but I know it does not resemble
for it is not so bright
not so pure
and is uncertain
I would like to describe courage
without dragging behind me a dusty lion
and also anxiety
without shaking a glass full of water
to put it another way
I would give all metaphors
in return for one word
drawn out of my breast like a rib
for one word
contained within the boundaries
of my skin
but apparently this is not possible…
~ Zbigniew Herbert ~

Quick note: I am in the process of resurrecting my galleries.
Click on the “☛ Gallery!” in the menu running across the top of this page to find the new “Art Of Emotion” Gallery in the listing.
The main tab drops down to allow you to choose between seventeen live galleries:
Additional listed galleries will be added while I continue dusting each category. The next galleries will be the return of the“ Gallery.”
Art Of Emotion is a collection of mostly loose and expressive; non traditional art which evolve on paper. Similar to the Vague Portraits Gallery; minus the portraits.
Many times I remain exact and proportionally correct, yet unfinished; using ample negative space and thoughtful, deliberate swaths of color to balance the compositions. Think: imaginary, diffuse just like thoughts and impressions, gestures to achieve a likeness.
You’ll also find art here that is strange, vague and free-form; sometimes distorted abstractions. I let it happen and try not to be intellectual about it. It’s fearlessness and uninhibited. Vibrant colors burst, spirited and wild in their form and shape. Think: ideas, memories, dreams; energy and emotional depth.
