The Age Of The Exile
The Sounds of Silence are deafening
"We live in the age of the refugee, the age of the exile" Ariel Dorfman
'Modern art to me is nothing more than the expression of contemporary aims of the age we live in' Jackson Pollock
Inspired by my outrage at the inhumanity, the greed, the cynicism of this Age of the refugee, the Age of the Exile, the age we live in. I simply don't get it; how can we not see that humanity, despite its wonderful and terrifying diversity, is you, me; one family
We are living Orwell's "1984"predictions - Big Brother, Perpetual War and displacement, Fake News, and control of the masses by 'bread and circuses' and the sounds of silence are soul destroying, deafening.
The theme of 'exile' is personally relevant, as much a part of me and my story, as is my experience and love of fantasy and nature, flowers.
