Life is Eternal, Love is Immortal, Death is a Horizon
Three Paintings by Mary Chimarusti
Artist's Statement: These paintings were inspired by the song “Life Is Eternal” by Carly Simon, where she sings “Life is eternal. Love is immortal, Death is a horizon.” What this song says to me is that there is a cycle to our lives, and that I need to embrace it as fully as I can in all its wonder, even death. When I have faced my mortality (3 times) or my loved one’s near death (Marci) it was scary but I did not fear it. Truly knowing fully that our spirit within can live freely after death in many forms gives me freedom to live fully, to live in the moment, to be free in my heart.
