The last few years have seen me working within the constraints of the house and as a consequence of this I have been tied within this 'loop' of emotionally squeezed space. Whilst this has had a positive impact on my work, it has been very difficult to keep reminding myself that a world exists outside of this space. My work, up till now, has demonstrated this interiority but has also, underneath, hinted at potentials elsewhere. The 'marker' that I placed in the image on my previous post became the catalyst for those potentials.
It is wonderful how sometimes the everyday gives us time to think and dream in a way that informs the mind so as to make changes in the work. What I had lost sight of over recent times is the fact of the openness of the mind to take me out of this space whilst remaining in it, to use my dreams, memories, knowledge as well as the home to open up the space in my work.
