Freedom is a form of energy

Aktualisiert: 31. Juli 2019

What could the freedom of an artist be? Maybe that she doesn't search for freedom, and instead devotes her energy to arts...

At the city gate and by your fireside I have seen you prostrate yourself and worship your own freedom,
Even as slaves humble themselves before a tyrant and praise him though he slays them.
Ay, in the grove of the temple and in the shadow of the citadel I have seen the freest among you wear their freedom as a yoke and a handcuff.
(Khalil Gibran, On Freedom, from The Prophet)

Work in progress by Maria

Meeting Maria was a delight, and some sparkles from her eyes hit all of us when talking and listening to her. Feel her energy and free spirit in this short video:

The completed work:

We will keep you in our minds and hearts, Maria! And if we need a little sparkle, we'll go and visit your painting in Mainz-Kastel.

And my heart bled within me; for you can only be free when even the desire of seeking freedom becomes a harness to you, and when you cease to speak of freedom as a goal and a fulfillment.
You shall be free indeed when your days are not without a care nor your nights without a want and a grief,
But rather when these things girdle your life and yet you rise above them naked and unbound.
(Khalil Gibran, On Freedom, from The Prophet)
