Between darkness and light, between one color and another, between one tone and the next, there is movement. In a conversation with Jesuit priest Friedhelm Mennekes, Joseph Beuys said, “Christ is in the movement”. Can we experience this? We can perceive here if we quiet our inner chatter and observe. In art we are working with something quite different from everyday concerns. We are learning to observe reality, see what is needed, and then to act. What is freedom? What is responsibility?
