THE EXCHANGE ON SUNDAY ! ARTIST PROFILE P. 2 • TED GLOBAL P.4 A TONIC OF TRAILS P.8 • POETRY P.10 • RECIPE P.11
Throughout history we have looked to art as a means of expression, a source of inspiration, and a place where we might find solace. Stirring us deep within, or motivating to action, we engage with it on so many levels. A musical interlude, disturbing drama, a movement, classic film moment, or a piece of poetry read on the bus… Is it the humanity within it, the uniqueness in each one of us, that allows our relationship with each piece of art that touches us to become so impossibly personal? How would one begin to describe looking into their mother’s eyes for the first time? Could we even recall that moment? Perhaps not, but where there is feeling, a bond is made which lasts, evolves, transforms and makes us who we are. Through art, in its many guises, we connect with these moments, we create and recreate them. We also, at times must reject them. I, then, venture that art is love, and that our relationship with it can be as blissful, passionate or stormy as the word suggests. In my humble opinion, from cradle to grave, it is love that we seek, and that this search will never and should never end. I invite you to share with us the chance to connect - Here every day, and here on Sunday! Sooree Pillay
