Escape route
I am a success story. 100 years ago, my great grandparents fled from the horrors of colonization and the occupation of their native lands and came to the new world. A world of promise, freedom and opportunities. Little did they know that in a cruel twist of fate, they would become the settlers, the occupiers...the colonizers. They did what they were told to do in order to be successful in the new world. They worked and fought hard so that future generations could reap the rewards of their labour and sacrifices. And I do. I am a colonizers success story. I lead a life full of freedom, opportunities and privileges. It's a wonderful Canadian life. But…...I cannot, in good conscience enjoy it when I know that my freedom came and continues to come at the expense of the indigenous peoples of this “FREE” land I call home. While I enjoy my freedom, The native peoples of this land endure….poverty, incarceration, rape, violence, addiction, abuse, suicide, murder, kidnapping, homelessness, a twenty year water crisis, a polluted environment, land theft, cultural genocide, displacement, trauma and systemic racism. My freedom has a human cost. Now that I know that, I cannot ignore it. Can you? The first step in reconciliation is awareness. Information is power.

I feel i needed 2 refresh my thoughts on the corruption of the terminology of concepts and their meanings. Communication is the bridge to lööööv, empathy and intimacy, art and honesty with ourselves and others (thru understanding and respect). The good stuff. If our terminology of concepts and their meanings are being corrupted then authenticity is not an option. And neither is love. Neither is progress. Happiness: nope. So: integrity Y'all! 🍃💚🍃💚 let's go #art #integrity #mfa #finearts #fineart #mixedmedia #arte #artist #painter #creative #quoteoftheday #illustration #drawing #newart #painting #sketch #quotesaboutlife #streetartist #urbanartist #modernart #rawart #aquarelle #artdiary #photoart #abstractart #croquis #me #collageart #contemporaryartist

Bur’s practice challenges us to make sense of a world we are increasingly unable, or maybe through exhaustion, unwilling, to interpret. In contrast to the attention grabbing tactics of click-bait news, or the bottomless downwards scroll of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, the visual pane of a painting resists distraction or escape.. - Helen Bur @abcdefghelens "Liminal" Solo Exhibition 8th March 4 Garden Walk EC2A 3EQ 6pm - #helenbur #artist #femaleartist #exhibition #artshows #artexhibition #collectionlondon #londoncurator #gallery1963 #gallery #londonarts #londoncurator #londongallery #itinerantgallery #movinggallery #urbanartist #muralist #muralism #britishartist #eastlondon #londonarts #artsy #painter #painting #paintings #figurativeart #arts #portrait #social #girl #face
