acrylic and Citra solved collage on w/c paper, 10 X 11″
I am of two minds.
I am of the mind that looks into dark spaces and shines light there.
I am of the mind that rests in darkness, seeing the light outside while not feeling a part of it.
And where these two meet I am of the mind of the explorer scaling dangerous peaks to discover the region where darkness meets light and the two sides finally know each other.
Beautiful words and beautiful art.
I really respond to this piece! I think it’s the colors (I’ve been attracted to yellow all week), and the inside/outside contrast, conflict or whatever one wants to call it, has been with me since I started to collage. I love the words as well! This is the integration of dark and light, belonging and not belonging, and as Jungians would say “holding the opposites”. Thanks for sharing this!
Thanks Lisa, for adding your thoughts about this piece and the collage process. Collage is such a mysterious medium if you let it take you where “it” wants to go.
