Original Art – New Love
This original art – New Love was inspired by Franz Kline’s abstract expressionist style as well as Rorschach’s inkblots.
The abstract art piece was born on a weekend away to a little place called Baardskeerdersbos, direct translation meaning beard shearer’s bush. Bordering the campsite was a plethora of fynbos, and while the sun was setting on the day, a sun’s ray touched one of the flowers, and I just had to capture that moment.
I named this one-off print ‘New Love’ because it is indicative of two parts of a whole person being held together by love while they discover their value, worth, and unique beauty. The transformation is complete when a magnificent butterfly emerges triumphantly from the ashes.
When you fall in love with yourself, you gain a deep appreciation of your worth and capabilities. Here is a great quote from Oscar Wilde on the subject of self-love; “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
