Tete-a-Tete by Sybille Sterk

Canvas Prints

Small (8.0" x 11.8")

Available to buy on…

The second painting in the series.

The series was inspired by T.S. Eliot’s poem Hollow Men, especially by the following lines:

“Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow”

I recently found this poem by Mary Inside vs. Outside and it fits the ideas and thoughts I had whilst painting perfectly. Check it out here: click here

There are four images in the series:

The first in the series is Panier-Avec-L’Oiseau.

The third in the series is Métamorphose

The fourth in the series is Fin

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
