Collage - Angel


I have been troubled by various life events lately, work, friendships, people and being unsure of whether i have the strength to cope with myself. I think my grandmother is dying and feeling my dad's sadness reminds me of how one day, i too would be faced with this situation all over again. They say that the ultimate fear is of death but if you knew you were going to die, would you be afraid? And if you were not afraid, would you then have the courage to face life forever?

it makes me sad to think that a part of me is dying in my grandmother but someone said, if we never died, we'ld be stuck here forever. And in a strange way, it made me look forward to that day when i leave this world. it would be ironic to be reincarnated again but i hope if i did get reincarnated again, that i would find art and love.

This collage.. "let me love, that I myself may be healed of all sorrow". It's about how i feel seeing people who are unhappy and wanting so much to love their sorrow away, because they are just a part of me as i am, to myself. The wings are made from ephemera but white doesn't scan well and so the subtle print from the ephemera isn't showing through the scan.

Sulea
Your art reaches out to me and touches my heart.
This is a beautiful, beautiful piece. Made even more beautiful by the feelings behind it.

I know what you mean about looking forward to the day you pass over. I think there would be a big celebration for you on the other side. But also know you have a lot more to do here before that happens.

Thanks for sharing your heart and art with us.

Much love

Dotee xoxo
