Artist's description:

There is a point in life where some feel the need to set out from the safety and structure of a familiar place, of a collective, or even of a well-built core of beliefs, to go out into the desert, into nothingness, silence and the unknown. Then transformation can begin…
By leaving behind society, family, habits, beliefs, distractions, we set out to meet ourselves. By letting go of the structures we rely on, we can build a much sounder structure within.

I would normally never have dreamed of putting green and purple together, yet that is exactly what happened: I had a dream of electric blue-green on iridescent purple, and I used them here. They are pearlescent so their appearance changes with the light.

"Departure" comes with a booklet detailing the story of the piece: a deeper look at its meaning, photos of the sketching and making process, and instructions for hanging and caring for it. I recommend consulting the latter before unpacking the piece.

Materials used:

Acrylic on wood.
