Review? Feedback? No. Just my feelings about a booklet of a truly inspired artist Paula Kuitenbrouwer: ‘Birds, Butterflies, Fish & Botany; the Beautiful Natural World’.
We don’t buy a piece of paper with artistically combined lines into a beautiful image on it. We buy emotions, feelings, hours of doubts, mistakes, learning, experience, philosophy, etc.. To me it seems a privilege to sneak into an artist’s laboratory and participate in creating process at least by watching it. It’s something that I was always doing at my dad’s photo laboratory— watching photos being born. It’s a huge mystery that takes you away and transfers into its magic world.
This feeling I got while reading Paula’s book. Every single explanation: a concept of composition, colours, shapes, personal stories that served as canvases for the future paintings; deep philosophy behind each element; and kindness, overwhelming inner balance and piece of the author that I felt while reading had simply gave me a therapeutic effect. To add up: short, clear, nothing to add, nothing to take away, just “THE BEAUTIFUL NATURAL WORLD”.
Thank you Liliya!
