This series was about the story of failed relationships, and the mess there is to clean up once things are officially over. The theme is pretty universal, and although we tend to play it down culturally, the scars from these experiences can last for many years.
For me, this one was a humdinger! I came away from it feeling utterly drained, confused and lost, with the distinct feeling that I had given far too much of myself and now there was very little left to rebuild with. That was 6 months ago, however, and while it still hurts a lot, I’m doing fine. I’m really happy to have taken the somewhat scary step of spilling my guts on these seven canvases. To have taken a painful situation and turned it into something pretty is my own personal form of alchemy, and I know that once the feelings of loss and grief have entirely faded, these paintings will still be a part of my body of work.
All of these images will be available as prints soon. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to talk about buying any prints or originals.
