OUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON YOU!
Shijo Alan Burner
Though recent events have been unnerving, to say the least, I have the sense that earth will be healing itself to a new and exciting future. Certainly, we are very sensitive about this confinement and the effects of it, yet for me, it has brought about feelings that there will be a new and exciting time birthed at the end of it. Just as the violin played a major role when Baroque music entered the world with its dynamic emotion, it feels as though there is a certain excitement ahead for our world.
The global issues we have on our good planet we face together, the harmony and peace we express are hopeful, as we have turned this crisis into a time to further create an oneness.
We must have the anticipation for the soon coming future when we all understand how much we need to appreciate what we do have. The artwork that I have created is with that understanding, with some degree of peace and joy knit through the work itself. Please enjoy the anticipated liberation and emotion woven into my new work. It was created with a need to express my emotions as an artist, first with a certain fear, but then soon after followed by a thankful heart, and peace of mind knowing that we will all have a new and exciting world soon.
