The Sublime and the Abject

  • The journey continues. What makes us truly humane? What brings out the finest in us as we negotiate with others in our day to day entanglements? Is the answer found in books or temples? I sit here thinking of identity, artmaking and the choices that contribute to human flourishing. All around the world mothers and fathers make decisions so their children do well in life. This fact alone tells me the creative fire is at the core of existence. Choices, choices, creative living. We marry the abject with the Sublime in our our everyday rituals. A voice for tolerance. A life sizzling with all the senses like nature at spring time when all is awake after the silence of winter. The sublime act of painting with words is itself a resurrection. Death born. A marriage of the abject and sublime.
