In my life I experienced that communication is the most difficult an complex issue there is. And if you reckon that this is what we do every day of our entire life, all day long it s logical that it s not always turning out the way we ment it to do guardless of our intentions our words lead there own life. How do we avoid miscommunication, hurting others trough words or getting hurt by others. Even if the intentions are good we still hurt and insult others through communication. More than 90% of our communication is non verbal. ( 35 %intonation) So if we communicate like on Facebook or e mail we mis a inmense part of it. It s like trying to swim under water without breathing. What you ment or tried to convey turns out completely the other way. Something what was not written in words was heard buy the heart. And that is exactely why I with whole my heart really dislike a platform like Facebook. Before I started making art I didn t join it for these reasons and that felt good. These days however as an beginning artist i think it s hard not using this broad platform as a Gallery. So here I am joining an institute my heart and mind says "keep far away from"!! Posting, react and interact. People which are in fact strangers to me and I mostley not see them as my friends in the true sence of this word. That s why I call them ART connections. Taking huge risks to hurt others with my/our miscommunication as in "you can t communicate alone " it takes two.
And there is this great solution we call ART. visual language for me is farout the most clear way to communicate ,not at least on FB. So lets talk art more instead of walking around in this minefield of verbal words.
Hereby in advance I offer my apologies for all that I will say or write the wrong way on this platform. Please take the time and space to speak out to me if I did so I can explain maybe more clear what I might haven t said clear enough. ( and take a lesson outbof it). I hope you dont doubt my intentions because I can only say that I will try to communicate from integrity en sencirity. So let us TALK ART Anne-Marie van Eck
Painting/mixed media on wood. 46 X. 67 cm " Escape" " Ontvlucht" Elke dag weer de strijd, zoektocht tussen ratio en gevoel. Ego en bezieling. Wat drijft een mens om elke dag weer te doen wat hij doet, en vooral te doen wat hij niet wil. Niet weet wat hij wil. Wil ontsnappen uit de emoties die daardoor ontstaan. Keuze maken. Ga ik de confrontatie aan of kies ik voor schijnveiligheid. Ik heb een punt in mijn leven bereikt dat de keuze voor de gemakkelijke weg geen optie meer is. Ik weet het altijd. Mijn hele lijf komt in protest zegt mij:" Keer om, ga terug, gevaar..!" En dan voorzichtig zoek ik een weg terug, zorgvuldig de stappen van de heenweg vermijdend. Weliswaar minder diep dan voorheen, maar onmiskenbaar daar. De weg is breed genoeg om vele malen heen en weer te gaan. Een uitgesleten pad inmiddels, maar door een prachtige omgeving voor wie het kan en wil zien.
Painting / mixed media on wood. 46 X 67 cm "Escape" An every day battle, quest between reason and impassioned living. Ego and living from inspiration . What drives a person to do what he does every day, and especially to do what he does not want. Does not know whát he wants. Wants to escape the emotions that arise from them Making a choice. Do I Confront myself if I choose false security. I've reached a point in my life that opting for the easy way is not an option anymore. I always know. My whole body is in protest, tells me: "Turn around, go back, danger ..!" And then carefully I look back the taken path, carefully avoiding the steps I made. Although less deeply than before, but unmistakably there. The road is wide enough to go back and forth many times. A worn path in the meantime, but a beautiful setting for those who can and want to see
