Soft pastels on sand paper
This painting represents the death of the old self, the rebirth of a new self, and the birth of a new life. It is seeing one’s own reflection somewhere between the light and shadow of a daughter’s face looking back at you and for a second feeling the overwhelming depth and complexity of the universe. This opens up a sudden new understanding of the self within the broader passage of life and the magical complexity of natural phenomena. The painting incorporates elements associated with death, loss, growth and rebirth.
