Looking at Art
Often people will say to me,
« I know nothing about art »…
and I reply...
Leave behind the deadening world of
Use your senses fully.
Be where you are.
Just look, don’t interpret.
See what you are looking at
with an open mind.
See the light, shapes, colours, textures.
Be aware of the silent
presence of each object.
Be conscious of the space that allows it to be.
Touch, feel and acknowledge its being.
Note the rhythm of your breathing;
feel the air flowing in and out,
feel the life energy inside your body.
Allow everything to be observed as a whole
without looking at detail.
Permit its existence.
Then you will be in harmony with it and yourself...
