“For he comes, the human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand
From a world more full of weeping
than he can understand."
I found the ispiration for this painting in one of the songs by Loreena McKennitt: The Stolen Child, homage to my favourite Irish poet. For me, being “taken by the fairies” can also be seen as a methaphore for the capturing power of music. The singer, as a bard, becomes a channel that opens the path to a world that lies beyond the ordinary.
