the power of our existence picture poem, 36x36" each, oil on canvas,
a diptych of two 36x36" paintings of a writing by Rainer Rilke. The first, an interpretation in oil on canvas, and the second a literal inscription of a writing in acrylic, graphite, oil and litho crayon. Framed in maple floater frames. Note, if desired, these can be connected and framed as one 36" x 72" piece--will require a 3 week leadtime. I will not break up the set. Please inquire for a commission if you are interested in only one or the other.
words: The person who has not, in a moment of firm resolve, accepted—yes, even rejoiced in—what has struck him with terror—he has never taken possession of the full, ineffable power of our existence. He withdraws to the edge; when things play out, he will be neither alive nor dead.
