The sudden death of my mum, to whom I was very close, left a deep grief in me and just a bunch of memories to hold onto.
Years later, in the hope of making some sense of my mother’s death, I brought back to life some of those memories and gave them a new form and meaning.
7 days, 7 memories, 7 paintings.
(here I’m showing only the ones that still resonate)
During the week the project lasted, I would start each day by meditating about which memory I would have taken back to life.
Once that was clear, still in a meditative state, I would explore the memory from many different perspectives, until I was ready to paint.
Then, I would just allow the colour to fill the canvas spontaneously, knowing the connection to the memory would have done the job.
