Free Flow – The freedom to flow 2006-2009

My own search for quiet was a journey of experiences, experiments, memories and peeling away of layers of questions, conflicts, inhibitions and thoughts at varying depths bound by complex ties, in an attempt to understanding the meaning of our existential foundation as human beings – connecting for the sake of separation, and separating for the sake of connection. Where does the life of the individual begin?

Water and their wonderful cleansing and purifying properties are a key motif related to the value of life and purification in many religions and cultures, from Judaism to Hinduism. Our first habitat in our maternal womb, many years ago, largely contains water and other fluids. Immersion in water is a universal experience that some of us remember as a positive experience, while for others is a traumatic, negative experience. Still others have no memory of the experience at all. Still, our own bodies, largely made of water, remember and retain these memories.

Based on my therapeutic work with water, I tried to illustrate the images, the internal processes that the body and the soul experience: the decomposition, re-composition, the tempest and the imbalance – and the serenity; the water’s wondrous ability to arouse and assist the individual to regain equilibrium in the body, through a journey of memories, thoughts, experiences of the mind and body, which ultimately lead to a sense of something new, something that has not familiar pattern; something than is transmutable and can be “aware presence” at a given moment without a body, something that is part of something else, something that dissolves and merges as part of existence and allows the individual to live a life of choice which is essentially the freedom to flow….
