When a flower is snipped from the stem it yearns to return. It leeks life blood from the wound hoping to cling back to the root that once nourished it... Made it whole. The once sharp pain of the pruning sheers deadens into a long slow throb and the stem begins to dry. The petals fall first, shriveling quickly as their delicate sensitivity fails from dehydration, the Essence of life ebbing. When they finally despair and drop the stem hangs on, retaining its moisture more efficiently without the clinging tenderness that made the flower so vulnerable. Yet it too stiffens as it drys, watching it's once beautiful, fragile individuality turn to dust. First the epidermis hardens as the precious moisture is reclaimed by the atmosphere. The hard scales of death journey inward until all that remains is the rod of shriveled cells, mummified by the isolation. The loss of the root, the soul of the flower, overcomes even the toughest of blooms, rendering it at last to the shell of its once glorious self.
So the tail of loss is told.

GriffinsJoy's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Creation: to give life to something new.
Art: defines the human experience through creation.
Independence: freedom from the influence or control of others.
Me: an independent artist who believes that life is art and art is alive.

I want to create beauty that lifts the soul. Life is Art and Art is Alive, therefore when I create I am making life. These two are inextricable.

Art is a cycle. It has no beginning or end because it is the interpretation of humanity; thought, existence and imagination. As a human expresses' the act of living by creating art, so art becomes alive itself, carrying on the life from which it came, sharing that life with each viewer. When we understand this, the potential for artistic creation becomes boundless.

My challenge is the exploration of potential. A starving artist in every sense of the word, my greatest hunger is to learn. My drive for knowledge gives me the energy to expand the boundaries of my materials, of physics, of my own physical stamina and most of all the boundaries of my mind. I have only just begun my journey into imagination and how it relates to the world around me. My work is always to find the most accurate expression of my original individual physical and spiritual perception. Space; environment is my medium. I will use any material needed to shape and control the world that I might share the unique sensory and visionary experience of life!

I am a sculpture, painting and history instructor at an Art studio in Ohio. I love creating public works!
