There is a gap in my blog as you can see. 2 long months. I have spent those last 2 months traveling around I have been filling my head with new ideas and my travel sketchbook with colour and line. I will share those soon with.
Meanwhile, there is a new project I started working on. And here is what it is about:
I have been tempted for a long while to create a collection about something that is close to my heart. Up until now I have been looking at women as isolated beings: focusing on their existence, their perception of themselves and their ambitions. But none among us is standing alone; we are all products of the way in which we were raised by the family around us. As women it is our mothers, sisters, grandmothers and daughters who influence our lives like the sun and moon influence the tides. Their relationships, both with us and with each other, inform our personalities to make up who we are. In Constellations, I explore these relationships between the women of a family, capturing them with symbolic patterns, colours and dimensions to produce a window on how a family sees itself.
This piece is based on relations between women in my family. Technique: Oil on canvas, size: 120 x 80 cm
