City of Love
CITY OF LOVE
all those eyes looking, I am looking for the eyes of the artist. I hope to see in them, somewhat almond-shaped, what I see in his work.
“…images that look like symbols and that could represent sacred aspects of a religion. They could also be a group of fusiform cells inmersed in a liquid womb…an eye, from the center, guards the water. It knows the lack of water threatens life in the Planet, it is the eye of God…” says the soul searcher to Rudolph Kohn, who answers: “The eyes represent the presence of an absence.” I think about what I can’t grasp, that what I can’t explain but I know and feel inside. Rudolf Khon takes me out of my self absortion, he continues: even if we are alone there is a presence, a presence of something, someone in us, inside us. I multiply these feeling intertwined with the affirmation of being, I develop these cities where all you can see is the gathering of people, of thoughts, living as one in an ideal society.
How to represent feelings, ideas, and thoughts…in a canvas?
What is the process?
For how long should you ponder on an idea before you start developing it? Or do you simply act...?
It is true that we are all the same, in the end we are humans. What makes a difference in our way to create are our experiences. The essence is the creative act, therefore individual, although sometimes we react collectively to an event.
The question we have asked ourselves sometime is: what is the reason for being, why be? Where is the energy moving to? Is our planet the only one with human life as we know it?
In the series titled “City of Love” we see the connection, the similarities, and also the differences and dissimilar forms: none similar to the other, like a fingerprint. It is life, beginning and end, to be born and create again. Time doesn’t stop, and we don’t know if we will ever reach the turning point in which time stops. Maybe it is in the canvas where we will find eternity or speed time…”
The eyes are Rudolf Kohn’s symbolic language. Since he was very young he has seen in them a representation of the unity of human beings, because you can sense in them the feelings and physical, mental and material aspects of the human beings of our planet.
I stop looking into his eyes to inmerse myself in the womb of City of Love and I swim in the liquid of life, in the living water of its creation.
