SPONSOR FOR PROJECT: LAUNCHING BOOK
Asyla ten Holt- a Visual Artist/Author promotes herself indoors and online. A selection of paintings can be admired and offered at her Atelier in Tera Kora area-Kaya Piedra Machu 37 in countryside of Bandabou-Curacao, inclusive on Google search-net. Her aspiration as an observer for her community lies within the distinctive outcomes and judgments that ultimately will lead to attract in Asyla’s Art. The addressing issues will gain mental transformation when drawing narrative aspects from a complex Contemporary Culture. To proceed, her driving force will enhance her value as citizen-artist in Dutch-Caribbean and she’ll carry on creating historical events to survive as single and self supported woman- Artist.
Within constant expectations for change, a first significant prose-book publishing (former rhythmic poem booklets and illustration works were presented in Solo-Art exhibitions), has laid down islands’ vulnerable confrontation in work-pieces to humorous creative writings. The moods from both lower- and upper trends of individuals and nature-preservatives are extracted in a segregated manner to question. The one aspect holds on to survive, struggle with emancipation and criticize corruptible functions, while at other end the feel for extraordinary comfort remains; Keeping a total distance from what’s daily going on socio-politically on drilling arguments. It starts with the somewhat negligence of the native tongue wanting to be on second place and the Dutch the first. Secondly as Racism is still hard to explain- the commodity in a fancy lure will justify unevenness; As usual a divisiveness exist in conservative capitalism of richness, no matter what island’s on and off fractioned colonial identity expresses in a black community. Though an intermezzo will enter concerning ‘equality’ in all ethic identities when nature belongs to everyone, thus ultimately a fondness for feeling free is a unique form of being.
Ultimatedly Asyla’s Visual Arts and Prose writings will favor being part of societies’ development and seek voluptuously offered choices– even if seems difficult in a strong ethnic mingled and diverse culture hungering for the same. When vulnerable identities are fully recognized inside potential promoting markets to uplift – most likely a distinguish extraction of flavored skills will comply with demand instead of create vulgar behaviors. Taken this in mind, trends in society can still continue focusing on maintain the European flair , than others the Latin American-, the Caribbean or mixed with USA-one, the Hip-hop and fast-food included.
With promotion of the book, Asyla wants to launch it by ways of travel (Europe-USA-Caribbean) linked with Authors’ Funark Foundation’s existence of 28 years promoting Arts/Culture. It will direct to the interest of collective traditional heritage groups in society. This titled cover ‘Enliven Emotions’ with colored images, is focused on the ‘strength of the women’, as well ‘settled heritage’ and ‘political tradition toward somewhat gained then disrupted currency on societies’ emancipation’. Finally the ‘nostalgia’s overwhelm and excite of culture and nature’, but also the traditional flair within Black community.
This new approach, with chosen language in English prose-writing came about through interest in resource-works and daily facing facts for gaining growth and awareness. It awaits discussions and arguments in course of time. The respondent huge capitalism against mayor black vulnerable community, is not a minutes’ trajectory capture film, but employs centuries of debacle’ with controversies, skeptical heroism amongst activists and groups coming down to nowadays flexible and modest attitude still battering situations across Kingdom.
