Recently I went through a difficult time. Emotions were high. Disappointments were discovered. Expectations not met. Caring tried to stay present through it all, but pain was felt. After a bit I found myself in the studio and was able through art to let the emotions and situation find its own expression and felt some transformation. The inner space is still tender but now I feel some spaciousness to continuing examining things.
In this piece, nails, broken mirror, rocks and chains and a discombobulated doll come together in a 5"x3"x2" stained and painted box to express pain and vulnerability and the frustration of feeling unable to effect the situation.
