Kiepersol


The voluptuous leaves of this cabbage tree growing next to our verandah struck a chord in us and served as reference (or inspiration, as some would have it) for quite a few artworks...

a print...

the texture on a frame...

... enamelled pendants

silver pendants...

and as 'conversations'...

  1. ah.. tracing this day -
    a trail of kiepersol leaves
    takes my breath away

    "When we happen to see a beautiful sunset or lovely flower we are often so delighted that we merely stand still. This state of mind might be called "ah-ness" as we, the beholder can only give a one-breath-long exclamation of delight: " Ah!" The object has seized us, we are being held, and we are aware only of the shapes, the colors, the shadows, and the blendings. In a brief moment we see a pattern, a significance we had not seen before. To render such a moment is the intent of all haiku, and the discipline of the form. Haiku poetry is a rendering of an experience, not a comment upon it. " from Haiku. The Poetry of Zen.Manuela Mascetti (ed)
