Sonder

(n.) the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk. (Koenig, 2012)

This painting is one of the most delicate pieces in the TIERRA collection, as a reminder to be kind to yourself and others; we are all battling our own internal struggles.

Sonder has a deep pearl base with multiple layers of delicates inks and golds. A heavy textured gold mimicking mountain ranges hug the entire painting. This painting is heavy, as it was created partly with concrete. The gold reflects differently depending on the light of its habitat. It is the perfect union between vulnerable and tenacious, which is at the centre of the TIERRA collection.
