“The Consonant of the breathing H.” The poet and the classical philologist Jesper Svenbro spoke about this in a radio program I heard many years ago. I do not remember in what context it was mentioned, but thought it sounded beautiful, and I saw in front of me the H-shape like the frame of a building.
It is often the case when my images are created that fragments and impulses from different directions are transformed and put together into something new.
In this graphic sheet, the drawing of the H-shape has also been composed together with a kind of rudder, the ability to navigate, the single line (the safe course), and the ellipse or almond shape (Vesica Piscis lat.)
The blue ellipse is a symbol of life itself, calm breathing (oxygen), and the rudder that can steer us towards what we want and can imagine.
Annie Lennox’s beautiful song “Universal Child” put the different pieces together for me to shape the picture.
I want to end with the last lines of the song
”I can feel you, you´re everywhere Shining like the sun. And I wished to God that kids like you Could be like everyone.”
