Digital painting and collage/textures.
It seems like such a long time since I last created any personal work. My dad died quite unexpectedly 6 weeks ago, and I suppose I am still in shock. It's like trying to negotiate a new kind of normal, because nothing can return to the way it once was. It feels as though a year has gone by rather than just over one month. Apart from paid projects, I haven't been able to face the thought of working, most likely because the images have such a close connection to my emotions and dreams. It felt too close, if that makes any sense at all.
Begin-again isn't necessarily concerned with loss, though. It's more of a crossroads, a meeting of the past, present and future. A preparation for flight. Challenging fear.
