"Motifs Bleus" 9"x12" Bristol. Mixed-media. February 2013.
"I'm increasingly cynical and increasingly hopeful. I just pray I'm one or the other when I die."
Where to begin with this piece? To be honest, I'm not even sure it's done... but nothing ever is. This piece is one of the few just-to-make-art-because-I-want-to pieces I've made in awhile. It was really healthy for me to do. It arose out of a singular frustration but became a manifestation of everything in my life that isn't exactly quite the way I'd like it... which is an incredibly selfish thing to say. This piece was fueled by relationship frustrations, the uncertainty of my future profession, the undeniable brokenness of my spirituality and the fact that I just wanted to make some art that I didn't have to make for anyone else but myself.
