Water represents the depth of knowledge, the fertility, it is a symbol of the uterus.
Fish represents abundance.
Woman as the drop represents the beginning, the fertih.ty, the abundance. She gives to the current world her way of understanding and solving.
A drop is a visual expression of water. A drop in the ocean is an expression of the infinite, a drop sweat shows our need to work. A tear allows us to see pain as a part of the human condition, a fertile drop that springs from love and gives life
Rain water that irrigates, feeds us, cleans us creates reservoirs and quenches our thirst many drops created the ocean, whose depths are lit by light fish ,thanks to them it has been discovered, that the combination of nano marine particles in union with chlorophyll make trees shine. Will it be the light bulbs of the future? Forest and jungle plants of energy? If this were the case, the wealth of nations could change.
Fish also represents wisdom, the creation. Today, we know that they have emotional answers.Discoveries that allow us to advance in the knowledge of intelligence.
The earth is our bed and garden. It is wise and harmonious in its plants and animals. Its harmony makes us accomplices of the future. Its wisdom teaches and advices us.
If the earth is sick we will become sick with it, we should take care of it so as not to perish. Man advance in technology, science...but poverty is there. The earth has resources for all but we don't know how to administer them. All mankind need each other, we learn in diversity. The women have the same, feelings, pain, and challenging needs in the different countries around the world. The cultures are a formal and diverse expression of a universal identity, that is, that of being a woman, at home, at work and community before all difficulties.
The mother shares the resources with equity~ or gives advantage to the weakest, if she doesn't have them she is audacious and creates them.
The woman gives to the current world her way of understanding and solving.
The exhibition was a bold and honest manifestation of the artist’s understanding and experience of what it is to be a woman. Using painting, sculpture and poetry, Lund explored both the natural attributes and the socially assigned roles of women...
