The flame of life: passion and devotion in the dance of love

Immerse yourself in my world, dear friend, where love, longing, and spirituality intertwine. Let your eyes linger on an image that appears as a powerful symbol for all these essences. An image where contrasts like black and white, dynamism and stillness flow into each other, accompanied by vibrant splashes of color that emerge as glowing messages from the darkness.

It shows a silhouette, perhaps a woman, perhaps all of us. She stands triumphantly or lovingly embracing, her arms raised, on a pedestal. She is ready to surrender to love and divinity in every moment, symbolized by the bird seemingly hovering in her heart. She caresses it, gently holding it with her outstretched arms, as it – a flaming arrow full of vitality and dynamism – rises towards her.

She is the heart of the image. She stands in contrast and yet in perfect harmony with the surrounding colors and shapes. And it is this black and white silhouette against the glowing red background that literally draws you into the picture, this invitation to partake in the magnificent play of life.

Then there are the black squares on the red ground, forming a checkerboard pattern. They could be walls, barriers, obstacles on our life path. Yet the color red is also the color of love, of passion. It almost seems as if the passionate energy of love is breaking through those barriers.

The image is not a representation of materiality, it is the echo of a feeling, a condenser of the invisible fluid that flows through all of us: love. Every structure, every color, every motif is a captured moment of love. I did not create it, it created itself through me. And I invite you to discover your own story within it. My dear friend, every time you look at this picture, it reminds you to live, share, and enjoy love in all its forms. Love doesn’t hide, but sometimes we have to go on a search for it. Let this picture be a companion on this journey.
