But Is It Art?
Perhaps the eternally unanswerable question. But definitely something to chew on... When I first saw it, I was instantly captivated.
At first thought, what a brilliant example of modern pointillism! Has some unknown artist taken up the long abandoned banner of Georges Seurat and presented us with a new manifesto championing art as points of light illuminating our waking dreams?!

OK, I see now it’s not a painting at all, so my pointillism exuberance is dashed. It’s more likely one of those photo collages with thousands of small imag
I am not defined by pink!Do we define sex by colour? Does a pink define us as a woman and blue as a boy? Pablo Picasso once said: "Every child is an artist; the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" How do they keep their imagination, please give children more than one colour! Thing is kids dont prefer the specific colour once a child is born but society imposes those colours on them. We see girls in pink and boys in blue. We see girls as teachers and nurses and boys as engineers and astronauts. Should we limit our children to only one colour and force them to paint their lives as pink or blue or let them dream limitless dreams? Should I tell my daughter no you should not be an astronaut that is boys job, or no you cant wear pants they are for boys only or no you have to wear only pink. When I go to the shops I am faced with walls of pink vomit on clothes that are for girls and mountains of blue for boys. Girls stuff only has unicorns, fairies, princesses boys stuff haI am not defined by pink! by SandraPelly

I was inspired to create this series by naikki while looking through her gallery of diverse artwork and reading through her journals which are focused on her favorite inspiring writers and thinkers. I felt certain there must be beautiful artwork in the form of portraits and tributes to these writers and their stories. I found most of naikki's choices of quotes to be inclusionary, redeeming and welcoming to any artist on their own path. Instead of just crediting naikki with the inspiration for this new series on depthRADIUS, I also invited her to provide a quote about Herman Hesse of her own to kick off this series.
Contemplations of the sharp-eyed mystic: when words become the palette to paint the journey

“Shadow passes, light remains.”
My art is a world of allegories, metaphors and multifaceted associations. This world is sometimes absurd and paradoxical, sometimes strange and surreal, but this world is a reflection of my true feelings. The dialogue is the language of intuition and metaphors. In this world, different emotions coexist side by side: irony, fear, joy, pain, sometimes even madness & despair.
Different viewers, according to their own perception of the world will often have their own interpretations of my work & this is exactly what I am after. I don't like to impose my point of view on the spectator; I only slightly open a door to a Wonderland or a Wasteland, determined by individual perception & unique personal experience.
Here... inside my head are tons of silly & arcane thoughts rallying to discuss,
loads of questions that have no permission to come out,
& a bunch of comedies I'm trying to restrict from popping up.
You have some more time to spare? Let's sit together & have some buttered toast.
You could tell me or ask me anything through..I keep many secrets...
