Sunflowers by Jina Wallwork (Jina’s version of Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh.)
I listen to your words as I explore every drop of paint. I hear your expression through the visuals that you left behind. I see your voice as it twists into shapes that can express any subject matter in a distinct way. Your voice is true to you, unique and filled with color. I can feel your intensity scream beyond a lifetime and I know that you struggled to contain it. You have my empathy wrapped around the fragility of your light. I speak to you in our language. We are artists and therefore we are connected through a sacred tongue. Ours is a visual language filled with symbolism and complexity. I hear your words and I respond with my own voice. We are forever connected.
