“Happy are those who sing with all their heart, from the bottoms of their hearts.To find joy in the sky, the trees, the flowers. There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
French painter and artist Henri Matisse wrote these lines in his 1947 book “Jazz”, which feature a collection of his recent work and thoughts. After a surgery left him bed bound and unable to paint and sculpt, he looked for new ways to create art. Not being discouraged, he used coloured paper to create large collages that are know as cut-outs. His encouraging words reflect this process of not giving up and instead pursuing new paths.
