Bloom, shades

Wind blowing through,

snow falling, covering white.

What you see if you enter the garden
Are imprints of how you experience the world

you are within, reflecting and creating.

An image as energy is being drawn,

being densified until you let it fall,

see it being devoured by darkness

to eventually grow again.

This series of paintimgs were made in the Upper Engadine in February 2022. The sky seemed very close, sunshine and snowstorms were ever present. Through my lungs, skin, eyes and ears, I was in exchange with the colors, sounds and winds that passed over the valley. The drawings are based on movement, rhythm and the return of regenerative powers. They were published by Hans Verlag in 2022.
