Artist statement


Art is a crystal medium where our souls communicate.
art reaches the deepest, widest, most infinite dimensions
and uplifts the soul from within

art is a crystalization of thoughts, reflecting our souls as in a mirror....in which we see more clearly , we awake and ascend

Resonance awakens our wings, we fly towards light... strength.......freedom.......


Aiqiu Hopen, 3/31/05


Think through
all the morning
and all the night
as a chrysalis
draws the silk of shining light

then
sculpt
and fly as butterfly
