Imaginative Art – The Fullness of Joy
This imaginative art piece is inspired by Franz Kline’s abstract expressionistic style, as well as Rorschach’s inkblots. While hiking in the wildfire devastated Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, a tree burnt to black ash caught my eye. And that is when the inspiration for this newest art piece was born.
I named this one-off print ‘The Fulness of Joy’ because nature undergoes a regenerative process to recover from a devastating fire, like some tree species require fire for their seeds to germinate. So too, we can emerge from devastation, like a phoenix rising from the ashes.
To recover from loss, we must weave joy into our tapestry of life because the good and the bad work together in the grander scheme of things. This is based on the premise that morbidity creates misery and its counterbalance is joy.
