Quiescence  2004 by Petrus H. Boots


     Quiescence was the initial logo idea during preliminary development of the design concept for our studio and gallery Art Unseen.  The symbolism was obvious, closed eyes, unseen, maybe too obvious.  At any rate, it fell to the wayside for this purpose when work began on Justice.  And yet it remained a work unto itself that I liked.  All it lacked was a decent title.

     Eyes or Eyes Closed as titles seemed kind of lame considering I hold titles for my work in high regard.  At times it seems a drawing or painting is simply that, a word defined through visual imagery.  Somewhere through my searching I came upon the word Quiescence (being at rest; absence of motion) and associated with its definition were quotes from T. S. Eliot ~ "lucid stillness" and Wordsworth ~ "wise passiveness".  I liked the word, it not only added description to the piece itself but it also had a balancing effect to the drawing Justice.  When fighting injustice locally or globally the eternal quiet within us is not a bad place to start and continue to draw from.  Going off have cocked and reactionary only tends to perpetuate the the very thing one wishes to change.  If one needs proof to this effect you need only judge the actions of the so called "leader of the free-world" (George W.)and see what they have wrought.
