I am so in love with Margriet Smulders‘ work. I want to live in one of her photographs….
A quote from the artist- My life and work are full of contradictions between the mind and the body, between science and intuítion, between dark and light, nirwana and samsara, modesty and voluptousness maybe all brought together by the heart.
You can see a whole world in my flowers. Lush and strangely erotic tableaux entice you into another dimension.
If Shakespeare had a camera instead of quill….Three additional photographs inspired by the bard.
And the sonnet for your enjoyment.
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
