Malea Birke • Art

Creative arts serve to understand the senses. It sharpens the awareness what serves the message you want to convey and what does not. Then asthetic becomes a point of reference in life from where you decide.

Imagine you paint something and how deeply you must be looking to re-create the object infront of your eyes? Imagine how deeply rhythm and sound could be understood by singing a piece of music? Imagine to retell a myth about failure and success? All this leads to a deepened understanding about music, painting and myths. Interestingly each exploration becomes the consequence of the previous and the purpose for the next understanding.
