Artist's description:

This artwork was inspired by the following poem by Rilke.

Sonnets to Orpheus II, 29
Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke
Translation by Joanna Macy and Anita Barrows

Quiet friend who has come so far,
feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
Let this darkness be a bell tower
and you the bell. As you ring,

what batters you becomes your strength.
Move back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.

In this uncontainable night,
be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,
the meaning discovered there.

And if the world has ceased to hear you,
say to the silent earth: I flow.
To the rushing water, speak: I am.

The pink areas are pastel, crushed and then applied using the fingers. The black mountain is ink.

This piece has been framed to a high standard at Detail Framing Studio in Edinburgh.
