Life Collides With Universe
Medium: oil pastel on canvas
“Life Collides With Universe”Places of dark have encroached on the light. This piece is about the people struggling with personal tragedy in a year which just made it harder. Individuals trapped inside looking out without the support of friends and community.Surface issues can be seen and cared for but deeper problems multiply.I deliberately chose an unfamiliar and therefore personally awkward medium for this work. I had to fight the medium to get where I wanted to go and the work has that struggle embedded in it.
