“Requiem (For the Damaged)”
22” x 30”
Acrylic on wood.
I wanted to capture the melancholy of a goddess who is destined to create for eternity, while the world responds with death, darkness, and destruction all around her.
As a creator, I relate to her, as it is sometimes difficult to create when life is sapping my energy.
The red stream of fabric in her hands represents life blood- she holds it to her chest with her right hand, as it slips through the fingers of her left.
Magic and rebirth springs from darkness.
If I can look at darkness straight in the face and find some beauty in it, then I feel it makes me stronger, little by little.
