It is a continuing tragedy that manifests itself at all levels of society in all parts of the world, and is without borders. Wars, diseases, afflictions, all take their toll of young and old, and in many cases can be avoided with preventive measures, good will amongst all men, and research into finding a cure for near fatal and fatal diseases. The passing over of the young and defenceless is particularly poignant, and doubly distressing, since we as adults feel that guilt, and question, could we have done more with the means at our disposal to have prevented this tragic, global and continuing state of affairs?
Michelle Hold,german artist living in Italy www.michellehold.com contributes with 2 pieces: “Dancing in the light ” and ” Show me the way”, both caring hope for a better future. Michelle’s research continues to go into colour and light, as they shape our world in profound and sometimes subtle ways.
