Felt pen, ink and collage.
This work is the result of a study on text and silence for my Fine Arts study. I have used words associated with suicide and text to tone the grieving figure and a combination of collage for the remaining sections.
My exploration is on the association of silence with grief and suicide has come from personal experience. I have now experienced 5 male suicides by people close to me. In all cases they have been silent about their feelings and left behind people bereft and grieving with un answered questions.
