Om kunstverket

Morgan Angela Thiesson Stavøstrand (f. 01.06.1982 i Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada--) er en kanadisk hobby kunstner og jobber som Kunstkonsulent i Kinn kommune. Hun bor i Florø med sine to barn og mann Leif Arne Stavøstrand, grunder av Evoy.no. Morgan liker å ta naturbilder, særlig på Svanøya, Sunnfjords perle og tar også gjerne portretter og bilder av familien sin. Hun finner inspiration i små detalljer, det man vanligvis går fort forbi.

'Beauty is alll around if we but look closely enough.'

Bildet av kløver fra en tursti på Svanøy tar navnet fra låten 'Anthem' av Leonard Cohen fra albumet 'The Future' fra 1992. Låten handler om håp i mørke steder, tror jeg. Her er teksten til låten:

The birds they sang
At the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don't dwell on what
Has passed away
Or what is yet to be
Yeah the wars they will
Be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
Bought and sold
And bought again
The dove is never free
Ring the bells (ring the bells) that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That's how the light gets in
We asked for signs
The signs were sent
The birth betrayed
The marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
Of every government
Signs for all to see
I can't run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud
But they've summoned, they've summoned up
A thundercloud
And they're going to hear from me
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That's how the light gets in
You can add up the parts
You won't have the sum
You can strike up the march
There is no drum
Every heart, every heart to love will come
But like a refugee
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That's how the light gets in
Ring the bells that still can ring (ring the bells that still can ring)
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That's how the light gets in
That's how the light gets in
That's how the light gets in
