"Sounds of silence" , by Erik Pevernagie, oil on cardboard, 66 x 88 cm

For some, silence can be hell. For others, silence can mean blessing. For those who are looking for stilled happiness and want to come into harmony with themselves, silence can be a releasing answer.

Sometimes silence may coincide with various atoms of sounds, creating a mood of soothing relief. So can the gentle roaring of the waves induce a sentient dimension to a cosmic experience.

Paul Simon & Garfunkel (Sound of Silence ) make it clear that silence is not the absence of sound, but silence is itself a kind of sound.

For John Cage " there is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear." and for William S. Burroughs "silence is only frightening to people who are compulsively verbalizing."

Phenomenon: Silence
