I Think About Your Hands (Ebook – PDF)




I think about your hands


This chapbook is inspired by hands and, in particular, by hands on the works of Leonardo Da Vinci. The hands are the theme that Leonardo deals with on the level of sensory impulses, thus opening a space not only for analyses but also for a poetic insight. When we think of da Vinci’s paintings we always think of the compelling presence of hands. Think of the calm of Mona Lisa’s hands, The Last Supper, Lady With An Ermine…

Hands do communicate the inner rhythms and truths we can’t quite put into words or we hide behind the words, and in the context of ‘trying to understand someone’ they more straightforwardly confirm the identity of the speaker, and, by extension, his/her emotional pattern.
