A new era of love
“When the day comes, we step out of the shade aflame and unafraid. The new dawn blooms as we free it.
For there is always light.
If only we are brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it”
Amanda Gorman; Inaugural Poet
We are in the beginning of a new era. A time when we register that our world needs more love, light and understanding. A time when empathy and consideration is at the forefront.
These ethereal ways of being may be effervescent and full of hope but it starts in our daily life. It begins with honouring the love we have for each other, our neighbours, friends, colleagues. For the past year, we have all shared in the loss of so much. The collective experience of this loss has made us realize the essential. The need to be grounded in love, care and empathy.
Art, Love and new beginnings
How does art play a role in this? How does art play a role in the new beginning of an era? As demonstrated at the Inaugural address by the young poet laureate Amanda Gorman, love is the core piece of our legacy. Although she spoke to democracy and the core elements of building a society of equity and respect; these are the pieces that must begin in your living room. It can begin with the consumption and promotion of art, words, imagery and thoughts that inspire you and empower to be in the light.
The light of love and consciousness.
As an artist, my creativity is all about distilling the outer world. The painting highlighted titled “Flying Free” speaks to the celebration and connection that this couple has on the bike. Moments that are shared that are not about parenting or working; rather it is about the sensation of experiencing life together. Being in life and love in a moment of time that builds for the future.
Celebrating the fact that “Love becomes our Legacy” as Amanda Gorman would say.
