Peace has always been utopian because it is all about mutual consideration and love between every human being. Today the intention or the wish for peace stands more important than ever before.
We all need to take one step back, put our differences aside, and ask ourselves; what can I do and how can I help create and bring more peace into the world?
To achieve this utopia, we individually need to consider all people around us as our next of kin. We all live under the same sun and moon, and we all breathe the same air. The problem in todays world lies with the lack of education and how mostly all political acts and decisions are money and/or religion driven. This must come to and end in order for us as a species to survive. We should not be segregated by invisible landborders nor religion nor money or power ridden politics.
To me, as a woman, peace is birth, love, education, tolerance, and communication. As a female artist, I consider art a space in which I can enter, and the speed of life itself slows down. Through my art I can visually express my emotions. Art is peace.
