Please don’t let me go. I desperately need you.

GAZING AT THE MOON

We are studying visual artist Rogelio Polesello in class.
Such research has caused me to currently be amused by the shape of a circle.
The eternity of the line itself that makes the circle,
And the depth of endless possibilities inside this eternal shape.
All of this in parallel with the ability an artist has to create a moment.
Sometimes a moment that although not “eternal”,
Comes as close as we can get to being able to “create” something eternal,
Taking my time to think about all of this is important to my visual brain,
Because it at least makes me think that I might grasp a bit better the idea of eternity.
Specially when I think of clothing, or recipes, or music;
Things that were already there. Created by God. Discovered by someone.
Most importantly, things that now are an important part of life.
All of them appearing as if they have existed forever
Specially to people like me. Born in an era where there was already a norm.
And yes…I know this might be a vain way to attempt to understand eternity.
But to me, it helps as a reminder that God is the beginning and the end.
If I get overwhelmed by the idea of an item having existed for so long in history.
then I have nothing left but to be in awe at the fact that God has always been.
God is everywhere. We don’t create anything.
May I always give the Glory to Him.

Inspiration:

The words “Eternity” and “Continuity”

The quote “It’s not how you leave, it’s how you land”   – Gary Go.

And… water…

Fame.

Not something to copycat, but in fact a gift. For what good is it to have the chance to speak to millions, when what those millions know and look up to is somebody else’s creation, and not someone’s true persona.

From that phrase we can instantly jump to the idea of influence. Where is the line between being open to influence and also to be grounded to one’s truth?

I, as many others, appreciate the legacy many artists have left from the past. I don’t think I will ever be able to say that my art and m work will never be influence by other people and their work.

So If my art is influenced by artists and their work, by people and their personalities; and if I choose to believe with all my heart that God Almighty is the creator of everything in the world, then, All I have left to do with the gifts he has given me is to honor what inspires me.

Therefore what inspires me is His creations. For he is the one responsible I have ever admired, currently admire and will one day admire.

And as a human and a self-called child of God, I know I am responsible for what I choose to say through my homage of God’s creation… Which is also God himself.

He is everything.
