Today I have almost finished the triptych, I still need to work on the center part. I think the circle is too big and irregular in a not satisfying way. I had this idea to add a heart and an octopus as collage and see if it would finish the piece.Now I see the work almost as a flag, which country would this work for, an island nation maybe. Its such a strange process working on a drawing , each one is so totally unique in its requirements. I have learned to listen to the heart of the work and proceed sometime with caution, sometime with wild abandon .I found this quote recently
For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. Its shell cracks, its insides come out everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction. __Cynthia Occelli
As I have done some work with seeds in fact I have a whole series, it seemed very appropriate to really understand what a seed goes through to achieve its goal of becoming a plant or an idea that ends up as a stage show or a drawing. Everything starts as a seed.
