After reading the Elegies for many years, the artist meditated on one a month. Ten Reflections emerged from a visualization of the poet’s words, which are interwoven throughout. Rilke’s expressions of despair, love, fear, and solitude begins, “Who, if I cried out would hear me then…”" (from the artist). Fine. Item #8913 Tight, bright, and unmarred.
