Layers

5 Comments

There are many layers to being human. Anger is one of those layers and to deny that anger exists is to deny a feeling. There is in fact plenty of anger in this world, it is all over, I have felt my share and I witness it on a daily basis. Anger is gasoline to an engine, when ignited it can drive pain and suffering all over this planet, and this is what we call aggression or violence in society. This isn’t to say that anger itself is not warranted, or that it does not have a place in the emotional complexity of being human. Anger is a feeling, and feelings change, to judge anger as being ‘bad’ or as something to be ashamed of is denying a feeling, and in our society where keeping face seems more the norm, the anger builds and without proper outlets and guidance can erupt in very disruptive ways. Deflecting anger only prolongs the inevitable; to be aware of and to embrace anger through love and compassion can redirect the energy into useful and even productive channels, art being one of those channels.
fotoMahaloness – within my paintings are many layers, all colors of the spectrum, art of the underground, driven by dynamic socio political climatic conditions and an unwavering curiosity.
