  •        Title : The Sandman

           Artist : Rendalf Ferlaendr      Technique : Digital Painting

    Description : 
    My artwork is dedicated to the illustration of the image of fear in the immortal novel of Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann's "The Sandman". In my usual manner and method of abstract-sacred improvisation I tried to reproduce the spirit of the story... an expression of overwhelming fear...
    “…He is a wicked man, who comes to children when they won’t go to bed, and throws a handful of sand into their eyes, so that they start out bleeding from their heads. He puts their eyes in a bag and carries them to the crescent moon to feed his own children, who sit in the nest up there. They have crooked beaks like owls so that they can pick up the eyes of naughty human children…”
    “He looked like Coppelius, whom I saw brandishing red-hot tongs, which he used to take glowing masses out of the thick smoke; which objects he afterwards hammered. I seemed to catch a glimpse of human faces lying around without any eyes - but with deep holes instead.                                                                                                                         
     'Eyes here' eyes!' roared Coppelius tonelessly. Overcome by the wildest terror, I shrieked out and fell from my hiding place upon the floor. 
    Coppelius seized me and,  baring his teeth, bleated out, 'Ah - little wretch - little wretch!' Then he dragged me up and flung me on the hearth, where the fire began to singe my hair. 'Now we have eyes enough - a pretty pair of child's eyes,' he whispered, and, taking some red-hot grains out of the flames with his bare hands, he was about to sprinkle them in my eyes. My father upon this raised his hands in supplication, crying: Master, master, leave my Nathaniel his eyes!' Whereupon Coppelius answered with a shrill laugh:
     'Well, let the lad have his eyes and do his share of the world's crying, but we will examine the mechanism of his hands and feet…”
     (E.T.A. Hoffmann, "The Sandman")

  •                   Title : My fear

                      Artist : Mariola Beneyto      Technique : Bleach and Poscas on Paper

                     Description : 
                     While I hear the voices of my mind, I loose the colours of my dreams.
                     I´m afraid to hear the screams of my mind and that they paralyse my dreams.
                     I´m afraid that the voices increase and not to realize the dreams of the kid who                    I once was.

    Comfortably Numb
    Pink Floyd
    Hello?
    Is there anybody in there?
    Just nod if you can hear me.
    Is there anyone at home?
    Come on, now,
    I hear you're feeling down.
    Well I can ease your pain
    Get you on your feet again.
    Relax.
    I'll need some information first.
    Just the basic facts.
    Can you show me where it hurts?

    There is no pain you are receding
    A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
    When I was a child I had a fever
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I've got that feeling once again
    I can't explain you would not understand
    This is not how I am.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    O.K.
    Just a little pinprick.
    There'll be no more aaaaaaaaah!
    But you may feel a little sick.
    Can you stand up?
    I do believe it's working, good.
    That'll keep you going through the show
    Come on it's time to go.

    There is no pain you are receding
    A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
    When I was a child 
    I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown, 
    The dream is gone.

    I have become comfortably numb.

  •  Title : Facing Fear

    Artist : Purple Snow      Technique : Acrylic Painting On Canvas                                      

    Finish : Permanent, professional grade, non-yellowing satin varnish.

    Dimensions : 20 x 20 cm

    Description : Fear. Sometimes it’s a very helpful thing that keeps us from harm. But many
    times it’s an inner voice and barrier that keeps us stuck. That keeps us from getting what we want and becoming who we honestly deep down want to be. Fear is not real. It is the product of thoughts we create. Danger is real, but fear is a choice. The fears we don't face...become our limits...to be present is to exist in reality, not in mind, which frees you from fear. Fear is temporary.
    Don't miss out on something great because you are scared. Everybody fears the fear, right. What matters is what you do with it. How about you making a difference by embracing it, by facing it, by conquering it! I still love the quote: '' My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear ''.
    Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the World.“ Jack Layton

  • Team Project Poem :
  • Renegade Fear

    The ladder rattles against the
    boat's board and is lifted by the
    seizure of churning sea claws.

    Lucid rungs are hurled off
    the boat with a briny fury —

    Like a renegade time machine, 
    steps swirl beyond a benign cut
    and dry vision as it hurls beyond
    the zones immortalized as children.

    Sunlight, twilight, midnight, abyss;
    enduring fall toward the trenches.

    Fears look into the glossy blacks of a
    midnight zone and fold into self —

    Tumbling until the steps hit solidity

    Fine sands, heretofore untouched, dance
    with the construct of a toppled collective.  

    It cowers and jerks in absolution as a
    springboard appears in the bottom of the
    basin's belly and is catapulted upward.

    The warm kiss from our lazy sun softens
    jagged contours as the ladder is reattached.

    - Magdalena Munro
