CHAOS AND SILENCE
The chaotic, wild, uncontrolled can be scary – and also very creative, inventive and lively. The silence, quietness can be challenging – and it can make me deeply happy.
In every picture there is a balance between chaos and silence. Pictures that at first glance appear chaotic, may reveal a silence at a closer look. And pictures that seem quiet, almost empty, hold chaotic liveliness, too. This balance does me good.
Sometimes I tend to avoid chaotic pictures. Even though they attract me almost magically. They beckon me surrender to the imponderability of life, to let flow instead of fighting. Whereas sometimes I don’t let the silent pictures come close to me. Yet when I do, they help me to dive, relax and just be.
