DRAWING BY JEANA SOHN

angel of progress

I love this drawing by JEANA SOHN.  It reminds me of Walter Benjamin’s Angel of Progress. “A Klee painting named ‘Angelus Novus’ shows an angel looking as though he is about to move away from something he is fixedly contemplating. His eyes are staring, his mouth is open, his wings are spread. This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past. Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe which keeps piling wreckage and hurls it in front of his feet. The angel would like to stay, awaken the dead, and make whole what has been smashed. But a storm is blowing in from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings with such a violence that the angel can no longer close them. The storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned, while the pile of debris before him grows skyward. This storm is what we call progress.”

I had got a desire to begin my organization, but I did not have enough of money to do this. Thank heaven my close dude advised to take the mortgage loans. Thence I took the short term loan and made real my dream.

Consequently, college students ask questions such as: "In what way could I create my paper?", "Who is able to help me finish my essay?", "Could I say anyone to accomplish my essay?" or "Will it be reasonable to buy customs essays?". Therefore, I can state that seems to be worth to seek for help at writing services!
