My big idea

My big idea is to give enough information for my viewer to enter their own re-discovered inner world, but not too much.
Not too much information. The viewer needs to discover it.
I also want to remind the viewer that life is short, art is long.
A wabi sabi kind of thing. I want the work to hold its own destruction,
but the holding, the touching,
the idea of nurturance and
reparation
will also be present.
It's almost a spiritual thing. A belief.
A faith.
That we will go on.
Not knowing what lies ahead, we do go on.

This one has me in tears--not weeping--the quivering edge of feeling both joy and sadness simultaneously--leaves one balancing on the eternal precipice of being terribly alive in the here and now. What a big, powerful post from your powerhouse big artists heart.

This reminds me of some of my most favorite antique quilts - the ones that are covered with leaves and clearly the maker used real leaves she picked up, or the ones with all the little household items - captured arrays of life.
