Archival Fine Art Pigment Print

DESCRIPTION

An ephemeral mandala of Succulents and Jasmine, built and photographed in the natural Spring light.

Created in the Spring of 2015, this Mandala of succulents from around my home, collected on a sunny afternoon, is inspired by a breathtaking quote by Rainer Maria Rilke:

'I beg you... to be patient towards all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then you will gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer'".
