O mundo de Shilo

Me impressionei com o incrivel trabalho desta artista plastica indiana. Além das belissimas gravuras, ela consegue expressar toda a beleza de seus trabalhos em palavras. O poema e as ilustrações foram tirados do blog pessoal dela. Vale apena dar uma visitada! :.)

..."and there's so much love to give. there's so much love to give.
Here we are. Poets.painters.philosophers.politicians. desperately trying to grasp what we're born into. All the immensity. trying to imitate. trying to emulate.
'but art can never imitate. It can only inspire.'
We cannot play god. through bombs. through paint.
The approach should then not be to imitate. To have 'creation' at your fingertips.
but to thank.
I could spend years painting a mountain. It will never be the mountain itself.
trapped on paper. not so vivid.
in technicolour.
(It will never be the mountain.)
It only expresses love for that mountain.
It is not to make it mine. But to make it me.

Love is:
Anterior to life.
Posterior to death
Initial to creation
the exponent of breath."
