At the Still Point of the Turning World
This week’s painting is entitled “At the Still Point of the Turning World”, which is a line from the T.S. Eliot poem “Burnt Norton”, the first of his Four Quartets. I was not looking for ways to directly reference any parts of the poem in this painting. Instead, I started to see that in this fairly active arrangement, there were a number of points that just seemed calmer, stiller… and that called to mind the line from Eliot.
Just like life – in the noise and chaos, we find our moments of clarity and calm.
If you’d like to hear a recording of T.S. Eliot reading this poem, you can find it here.
