“A Name for My Artwork”
I have been looking for a word to use for all my pictorial endeavors: painting, photography, and the placing – or throwing – of objects to then be photographed.
I cannot find one in English. So I am led to the Chinese shih hua.
Shih means creative activity
and hua pictures.
So shih hua does seem to describe what I do.
And then to add that it is always with the intention, the hope, that it be healing. This I believe is the basic reason for us having the gift of creativity.
Fu Yuan – healing
So: Shi Hua Fu Yuan.
