wrestle by annamora

small format work again A4 size paper with rice paper texture and layers of acrylic paint and inks

… back to my favourite theme take on the ‘Jacob and the Angel’ story …. about the need to wrestle all night long for the blessing we want to have … I think it is very valid especially for art ;) …..
I have used this idea which actually comes from my very favourite Gauguin’s painting before here

I believe arts making creates connection between our inner and outer worlds.
I love the depth, the lightness, the playfulness, the seriousness and the inexpressibly sincere nature of relationships which tend to ‘just happen’ while sharing interests, passions and frustrations about art :)

    I did not write down that it is taken (very freely) from my very favourite Gauguin’s painting .. I used it before in this as well

    I tend to wrestle with things just like you Anna!I really like the texture of the rice paper and layers of acrylic and ink. It also reminds me of something but I can’t remember the author….For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places…. Thinking of you and sending you a big healing hug….Sx

    Just knew this was yours! Can’t say enough : the texture, subtle colors like dirt puffs from the scuffle, gorgeous blue, the movement in simple strokes… there is much for us to wrestle now; maybe we are all feeling this tension.

  • …… you know … I just do not know what to reply now …. because … i kind of do not want to ‘spoil’ what you’ve said ….. in any of my silly ways … thank you thank you ..yes .. wrestle we must
    love and light
