Art Through Perera

Gabriola island

"I am not here to shock or to appease you, I am here to tell a story.  A story of one voice.  A story through art.  I thank you for taking the time to listen."

Maarten Perera

Ushebti 1: Deep deep inside

    

My mother is there

My father stands tall

With Amma’s embrace

I shelter my fall

Ushebti 2: Broken Hearted

 

He kept me alive

He swallowed me whole

My heart is so grave

As dark as burnt coal

24" x 30"  mixed media sold

Your joy, my sorrow

   

Sounds of the wicked

Those pleasured and pained

With anguish and heartache

Yet, bliss still retained

With rages so loud

Yet waters so still

His smile filled with joy

My heart at his will

Spank the monkey

      

I reach high into the sky

So high I feel like I could fly

Yet you leave me to my own devices

Just like the roll of vegas dices

 

So here we are just having fun

A secret act until we're done

A motel 6 sounds pretty funky

just me and you to spank the monkey!

Worship

My love for you will never waver

I reach to hold you close to me

Yet still you cannot taste my flavour

So I will now vow to worship thee
