The Power of Life’s Forces

British painter Jenny Saville’s comment about the search for the power of life’s forces is profound:

When I paint, I don’t search for beauty, but for the power of life’s force: when you fall in love with someone, it’s life’s force. When you see amazing food or you listen to music that goes right inside your body, that’s life’s force. That moment is not an intellectual space, it’s something beyond – you can’t articulate it. It’s about the moments that help you breathe deeper.”

Certainly something to aspire to but much harder to achieve.
