Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

This piece of work and the accompanying poetry below were both created by me, inspired by the hurt of being on the sidelines of another’s life looking in. Unable to ever be anything more than that. Still I carry pride for them, and for what they have achieved.

Drenched
voids
provide gaping wound,
in which
emptiness flows.

Peering out
through painted layers
my once thought
irrepressible,
pain shifts.

Immersed
in solace
with welcomed
pride
for another.

Mixed Media:

Textured and layered piece using:

Acrylic painted abstracts, Photographs plus an acrylic painted mounted composition of plasterboard tape.

There is power in being able to express something emotive through art and let it go, I find it’s this that keeps me engaged in using art to grow and heal…

    Isn’t it amazing how good art evokes different feelings…… My first thought on viewing this? “The chameleon always fits in ’cos of fear of being gobbled up” For all its solace this stands out…. Hmm a subtle piece

  • I LOVE THIS COMMENT!! :) … “The chameleon always fits in ’cos of fear of being gobbled up” For all its solace this stands out…. Hmm a subtle piece"

    See get out of my head!!… It is subtle because I don’t want to be gobbled up… GREAT words as always :)
