To the Unknown Helper #19: Reflections on Mahler

Delight becomes pictorial
When viewed through pain, —
More fair, because impossible
That any gain.

The mountain at a given distance
In amber lies;
Approached, the amber flits a little, —
And that ‘s the skies!

(Emily Dickinson)

Nilges, “To the Unknown Helper: state as of 25 July”: acrylic on canvas 50×60 cm.
