With pen and brushstrokes, Emily Wierenga gives me the gift of seeing my deepest and most personal experiences---and maybe even my unacknowledged, unspoken fears and longings---through art and beauty. Katherine Paterson said, "Art is never a quick cure, and it is not necessarily a comfort. But art is a means of seeing truth that cannot be observed directly." Some truths are so beautiful or so stark that, indeed, I can't look straight at them. So these paintings and poems are the art that allows me to see those truths with awe and honesty. And they do also comfort.
canvas child: a collection of art and poetry gives us LIFE, COLOR, FAITH, FAMILY, BEAUTY, LOVE. (The book is divided into those sections.) Some of the words that moved me most profoundly:
"you never once lifted your head / as if to reject a world that never sees you. / but i saw you."
From "give until we break":
"i want to give until i hurt / enough to produce joy."
From "inside these walls":
"for the first time in a while it felt right, me on the cold pew"
In this art and poetry collection I have found joy and life, comfort and companionship, love and hope. Thank you, emily.
