“He was a diamond of a soul.”

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” ~ Martha Graham **

“Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.

~ Robert Hughes ****





*       Sally was speaking about Paul Newman (actors).

**     Martha Graham, a famous dancer! 


Martha Graham (May 11, 1894 – April 1, 1991) was an American modern dancer and choreographer whose influence on dance has been compared with the influence Picasso had on the modern visual arts,[1][2] Stravinsky had on music, or Frank Lloyd Wright had on architecture.[3]

***    Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet 

****  Robert Hughes, art critic. His words, although not directed at Ellen E Brock or her sculptures, do apply to the nature of soul in her graduation artworks of May 1990 (Alberta College of Art and Design’s (ACAD); Ellen’s sculptures were selected on graduation night by curators who later placed them into a two-person sculpture gallery show (August 1990), at “Truck: An Artist-run Centre. Her pieces were made of  RUSTED METAL & LACE and were a commentary on what (who) is actually strong, and what (who) is actually vulnerable (and destructible); appearances vs reality: metal or lace. She titles her sculptures still today as some derivative of STRENGTH vs VULNERABILITY ~ Ellen E Brock © 1990 Truck Artist-run Centre Exhibition (a.k.a Kathy; Calgary Herald, Canada).
