Can’t Fix Everything
This work was created initially on paper, using acrylics, inks, and pen. I worked on it in a fairly dark room, which I often do with my strong emotional pieces. The reason I choose to do so is that it takes away much of the thought process, and the critical eye we often use when we create. A dark room means that emotion and shape are more able to flow without constraint.
I used my hands to work on this piece as well, quite literally. It was important for me when creating this that I actually became part of the work itself. Art is such a powerful expression when sometimes we have no words.
After I took it out into the light, I photographed it then overlaid it with an “accidental” photograph I had taken – a hurried, blurred image – because it seemed fitting that the artwork reflect also the tumultuous intensity of our lives at times, where we are pulled in all directions and become simply overwhelmed.
