2006 Heart in Art Project, was the

Brits-Hartbeespoort Hospice 

December 2006 Dear Family, Friends and Art Lovers, I am delighted to announce that we will be having a big Re-Opening Exhibition on the 17th of December, the 3rd Advent. As many of you already know, my fotostudio is called Atelier Ariel, like the Angel... It was my childhood dream to restart my greatgrand-father's Film Production Company ARIEL FILMS. My artist's soul and that of my great grandfather's have something in common - the conviction that Art must function for mankind, t o help them and create something pure and righteous... I have had the idea of "Heart in Art" for many years and now,  after a sad but strengthening tragedy, am conviced that the time has come to create a new beginning. The beginning I envisioned was the KUNST IM TREPPENHAUS Exhibition as the official start for "Heart in Art"... "The Heart" on this occasion, was aimed at the HOSPICE in Hartebeespoort, Brits. This branch of HOSPICE would have nursed my dying father, had he had a fair chance against Pancreatic Cancer. Half of the income was donated to this little HOSPICE branch that struggles to create miracles... My grandfather, Friedrich Harry Piel, loved Albert Schweitzer. They were very similar in many vital aspects: they both had a tremendous respect f or LIFE, faught for their ideals and for the "Menschheit". Yesterday I came across an expression from Albert Schweitzer: "Viel Kälte ist unter den Menschen, weil wir nicht wagen, uns so herzlich zu geben, wie wir sind." In essence, to me, this means that there is much coldness, awkwardness, life unlived amongst human beings, because they do not dare to live out their hearts, or the warmth that lives within them... I love the expression,  because it reminds me of my childhood in Africa, and the magnificent African Souls I met who lived life like Schweitzer believed, and I am convinced  that ONLY AFRICA could have inspired him to think like that! The human beings I met gave me enough warmth to open my heart, and showed me how to " live it open... " They were like Angels without wings, because they were messengers of love. They helped me become the Mensch I am today, and I am very grateful of having the priviledge of their guidance. Fortunately, Africa was not the only place where I found Angels... I found some in Australia, and I found many more in Europe who have influenced me positively and accompanied me on my journey. With my "Heart in Art" Exhibition, I wish to return and share something to and with the Menschheit... I am excited about the experience I am able to share with you, this tremendous step in my life. I am also pleased to be able to introduce so many special people to one another... Hope to see you all on our event... Sincerely Eureka

2006 Heart in Art Project, war die

Brits-Hartbeespoort Hospice 

Dezember 2006 Liebe Familie, Freunde, Kunst- und Lebensliebhaber! ENDLICH ist es so weit! Am 3. Advent, werden wir eine GROSSE WIEDERERÖFFNUNGS-AUSSTELLUNG in unserem Hause feiern! Wie Ihr hoffentlich schon wisst, heisst mein Atelier, Atelier-Ariel, wie der Engel... So hieß bereits die Filmproduktionsfirma meines Urgroßvaters und seit meiner Kindheit war es mein Traum, diesen Namen für mein Lebenswerk einzusetzen. Meine Künstlerseele und die meines Urgroßvaters haben auch etwas anderes gemeinsam: den Glauben, dass Kunst für die Menschen "schaffen", Ihnen helfen und etwas Gutes bewirken muss. Seit Jahren wollte ich "Heart in Art" anfangen und nun habe ich diesen großen Schritt gewagt! Kunst im TREPPENHAUS wird meine erste offiziele AUSSTELLUNG für "Heart in Art" sein. Es ist einer Herzensangelegenheit für mich, denn die Hälfte der Einnahmen dieses Tages werden an HOSPICE in Südafrika gespendet! Mein Großvater, Friedrich Harry Piel, hat Albert Schweitzer geliebt. Sie waren sich sehr ähnlich: lebensachtend, kämpften für Íhre Ideale und die Menschheit. Gestern abend begegnte mir Albert Schweitzers Spruch: "Viel Kälte ist unter den Menschen, weil wir nicht wagen, uns so herzlich zu geben, wie wir sind." Der Spruch trifft für mich und den Anlass sehr zu, denn in meiner Kindheit in Südafrika sind mir viele Menschen begegnet, die lebten was Albert Schweitzer beherzigte. Sie strahlten Wärme aus und öffneten mir ihr Herz... Und zeigten mir, wie ich meines öffnen kann. Diese warmen Seelen waren für mich wie Engel OHNE Flügel. Sie machten mich zu dem Menschen, der ich heute bin. Und dafür bin ich sehr dankbar! Aber nicht nur in Südafrika habe ich Engel kennen gelernt. Auch hier sind mir Menschen begegnet, die meinem Weg entscheidend begleitet und positiv beeinflußt haben. Mit der bevorstehenden "Heart in Art" AUSSTELLUNG,  zu der ich Euch herzlich einlade, will ich etwas an die Menschheit züruckgeben und Euch daran ebenso teilhaben lassen! Ich freue mich auf das Erlebnis, mit Euch diese bewegenden Schritt in meinem Leben zu gehen und hier und da Euch einander vorstellen zu dürfen. herzliche Grüße Eure Eureka
This exhibition was dedicated to my father who passed away on the 1st of August 2006, as well as the Angels of HOSPICE in South Africa.  The amazing Human Being & nurse - Lynette would have nursed my father,  had he had a chance against the pancreatic cancer.
Diese Ausstellung war meinem Vater gewidmet, der am 1. August 2006, an Bauchspeicheldrüsen- krebs gestorben ist. Aber sie war auch den „Engeln“ von HOSPICE in Südafrika gewidmet, die jeden Tag dem Tod begegneten. Sie setzen sich weiterhin dafür ein, dass schwerst-kranke und sterbende Menschen aktive Lebenshilfe erhalten und Menschen mit Krebs oder AIDS eine würdigen Tod erfahren.
