Paintings from 2017-2018
As we go on our journeys into self exploration, we need others, guides, to support and listen to our experiences. The process of sharing our stories is necessary step to help us transform ourselves, to own our felt experience and to embody it. It allows us to be witnessed by another, gain new perspectives, and heal.
This series arose from the awareness of how we use the faces of others, particularly those we are close to, to ground ourselves. The appearance of a smile softens us, allows us to open, to relax in the company of a friendly other.
