der reisende im herzen

im herzen sind / bäume der gärten / singende vögel /
im höchsten masse wunderbar /

ein streichelnder regen / ein tropfen im haar / und tausend worte wahr /

dort auch der teppich von / lieder der liebe: /
vom enttäuschten glück /
von verlorenen jahren /

in seinem gehölz / klage und zorn / angst in den augen / und die sonne ertrinkt / im ozean /

über’s meer / die wärme / mit leuchtenden lichtern / in gefalteten händen /

ich hör – / im herzen sind / bäume der gärten / singende vögel aus silber und gold /
im höchsten masse wunderbar /

very often i’ve been asked, „what does your name mean?“ “where does it come from?”.

sirpa(le) = a shard, a piece of broken something = luck

when i was a small girl in finland, my mom used to call me “sirpale”. i was not just an ordinary shard of some broken plate to her – eventhough smashed plates have brought luck to many of us: certainly they brought good fortune to julian schnabel! – no, she saw me as a translucent piece of a broken glass, that would bring fortune for me and the others. she gave me the feeling being something special… time has passed, but the thought being a piece of something has escorted me until today. i still see myself as a fragment. in comparison to the past, it’s no more so important to be someone special. what really matters today, is rather the feel to be a part of the whole. that is a really liberating feel!

immatured ideas

it is the time for new ideas!

i’m about to complete a painting that i simply call „the leaves“. very often it happens to me that in the last meters before finishing a work, my emotions start to fly through the space of my soul, finding a fresh inspiration, yet immatured. i find this older painting above describes these momentarily green feelings pretty well.

rootless

after a profound solitariness this sea of blossom can put down new roots, now! on the quiet these flowers were looking for a place to continue their impact… and who seeks will find.
