If you breathe out, you will breathe fire / people below think it’s shooting stars / it’s the time of the wild hunt / when every being that existed marches down an endless road in the sky / marching towards the small spark that we sometimes see from the corner of our eye
and hours ago I floated in a warm green sea / the huge mountain looming above / it moved differently though me / the dense quiet grow of the forest / the dark spread on the horizon line / the sea smoke bleeding to land / the shiver of grasses / a comet burning in my eye / creatures gently lifting rivers at the seams / new tendrils / a mantle of swords sometimes left behind / my rib is that dark thing / sky and skin smearing / I hope I’m never sick of it
In eating stars together at dusk Bunce-Rath investigates domestic and connections to the divine, portals of entry to other realms and how they manifest in moments in daily life. Influenced by spiritual painters like Agnes Pelton and Nicholas Roerich, as well as Rudolf Steiner’s theosophical learnings and philosophies in those areas of emotions, colour and spirituality, she finds her own visual language explored in rich colour and compositions.
