My whole life there has been a fire burning in my soul. I felt a 'pain of separation' that always seemed to move further into the distance the closer I would walk towards it... The Blue Flower ('Blaue Blume' in German), is a symbol of the romanticized longing of something elusive on the horizon. I painted Blaue Blume in May andJune 2020 after George Floyd was brutally murdered by police on an American street, triggering nationwide protests against police brutality. The following weeks brought the collective pain of racism not only in the USA yet all around the world to the surface. In seeking to understand more deeply the pain of racism I found out that in 1851 a German historian -Johann Friedrich Blumenbach - coined the names and colors of the five races now covering the face and hand of the painting's archetype. Blaue Blume is a complex painting. It is rich in symbolism and invites you to read it like a book on canvas (TM) using the reactions of your body to the many symbols as a way to decipher your own feelings about race and racism. What emotion is triggered in you? The individual paintings in this collection are drawn from Blaume Blume to honor the depth of some of the symbols and their complex meaning throughout history in different cultures with the awareness that I - the painter - are a Caucasian woman from Roman Catholic roots...
