[...] Whether we present fantastic rich worlds which we escape in, or a pragmatic and simplified representation of a considered reality we live in, or the weirdest and most vulnerable parts of ourselves, we stand naked in front of you, the public, the viewer, our naked thoughts …naked to be laughed at or praised, naked to be hated or admired, naked to be despised or cherished, to be understood or not, to be criticized or applauded.
I harbour no such illusion that an artwork can be universally liked yet if one single man can make sense of the letters, if one person was helped not feel as alone, if one individual is supported in understanding how much larger a role he has to play still, the artwork has reached its purpose.
[...] Originally, as if frozen in a world that was not ours, as painted in a painting we were not part of, we couldn't do anything. We have however agreed, as I wrote to her, that “I shall search for her on all the planets and in all the lives I shall ever have” and we allowed ourselves to write to each other.
These are our love letters rewritten on our costumes since we were two faceless souls communicating with each other. These are our words, our feelings, our embraces, our buckets of tears of sorrow and joy, of desire, of love, of … hope!
About Love, Life, and Art
[...] The artistic impulses are the very expression of our individuality, not only as human personalities but part of the individuality of the source we are coming from. They hold great authenticity and those around an artwork may perceive this unperceivable energy that they carry.
We cannot separate therefore and break into different concepts and speak separately about love, life, and art. Life is love, love is life, and art is an expression of the love for life that one holds in his being.
[...] In each end every one of us lies the power to fully blend the masculine and the feminine energies, to consciously choose the blending of the polarity of positive and negative energy, to fully blend the harmony and love, the happiness that is ours, that is our birth right and is fully enclosed within us and in the marriage of the relationship of the female and the male, there is not the loss of the individuality, but rather the celebration and rejoicing of oneness.
[...] Expressing ourselves in this world encompasses our interaction with the world. Every single concept, every single object, every relationship, every single situation, in one word every interaction is the same one thing but an encounter with ourselves manifested from all the different points of view that oneness can manifest and what the interaction brings up is what we need to look at at the particular moment of interaction.
We are all teachers and learners, we are all equal sharers, each of us has something to reflect to the other, we are all mirrors.
[...] The creative power to shape our own experience is within us now, as it has always been since the day we were born. We might have chosen a particular idea for this reality, a certain framework of conditions, but within these we have the autonomy to test, to research, to create, and alter conditions and events we have the liberty to recreate our reality should we so desire. Each person chooses for himself the individual patterns within which he will create his personal reality.
[...] Throughout our linear reality, we always see ourselves in the present moment, we recall an approximate past (not necessarily known or remembered in every detail) and look into the future, where even if we have a sense of what is to come we are wondering many times what it will bring.
[...] Acceptance is still and quietly does nothing. It offends no aspect of reality, nor seeks to twist it to an appearance that one may like. It merely looks and contemplates and most important does not judge.
Basically, detaching the notion that a viewpoint, a truth is the only way, and replacing it with the notion that a truth is only one way, can increase the acceptance of others and can lead to much better communication between people regardless of whether or not they can see eye to eye on a particular idea. I am sure I am far from alone in believing that increasing the acceptance of others and a better communication leads undoubtedly to a greater unity since there is strength and unity in diversity.
