INTERPRETATION OF TOMES BY BEATRICE COFIELD – ART-DIRECTOR AT JMA-YMA
A unique, sublime, moving co creation of Tomas De Bruyne and Vincent Messelier which convey to the world a vital example and message men and women through their busy lives, especially in cities need to reconnect with nature, learn how to feel « human, present » through the rhythm, beauty and harmony of all organic life.
Tomas De Bruyne‘s testimony is to inspire us all with his transcendance and passion:
« For me, working with flowers is like painting with music. The art of painting music and flower arranging expresses deepest emotions in a tangible and audio visual way. The universal language of art and very specific of flower arranging has the power to make undefinable feelings more explicit and is, therefore, also a barometer over time ».
Yes , we can recognise here a path on Leonardo de Vinci footsteps with, throughout our history, our need to let our mind be carried by the flow of a stream, be in awe with nature design, recognise its universal geometry and infinite variations, understand that trees, flowers in our forests and meadows,
all organic life, all natural elements are of our essence or original mattrix.
No, There is no art without an architecture encapsualting energy, life, an abundance of detail as symbolic codes weaved in harmony.
So indeed, these two outstanding artists build the architecture, the unity we need to align our heart and mind to, throughout the world. In nature, we find the perfect balance, which we cannot sustain in our own lives without such awareness.
So when reflecting in awe upon Tomas De Bruynes’s universal key to perception, we do find the definition of art as a dialogue with ourselves and the world:
“Harmony is a subtle co-existence of contrasts, light and shadow, continuity and discontinuity, soft and harsh.…….
The balance has to be present in all aspects varying from colour over form to proportion.
It is harmony which gives a surplus value to a final arrangement, a unique form of creativity ……
The universal language of art and very specific, the art of flower arranging, has the power to make indefinable feelings more explicit and is, therefore also, a barometer of our time.…..
I don’t believe we create from a void. As Gaudi said, the human always has to elaborate on what already is”.
Both Tomas De Bruyne and Vincent Messelier elaborate on the beautiful rhythms of nature, enhancing, sharing its sacred magic.
Every picture processed by Vincent Messelier, in response to Tomas De Bruyne’s arrangement, becomes an awesome fusion of soft, pure transparencies, an altogether subtle and powerful musical code inviting us to journey beyond time, in a cosmic dimension where flowers are a sacred,
mysterious centre, a centre of light, a sun, a vision, a birth, a beginning and big bang.
We find ourselves immersed in the purity of beauty, the delicate, soft feel of flowers, in contrast with the harshness of some powerful contrasts, definitions which cut through like thorns.
And like in a musical sentence , all emotions are orchestrated, connected in harmony so the viewer can be beyond and behind the city wall, free as the reeds, trees and flowers, in the breath of time.
A unique art form indeed to our delight.
