Artist's description:

This work is concerned with the idea of healing after psychological or physical trauma. It began as a concept to illustrate the healing within myself and initially was explored as a motif through digital tablet... that wasn't enough...didn't quite say it right.... I started work on a sound piece and decided to do a physical work on the same day... they developed in tandem, but both discretely went their own ways...
The work on sale is a 1m x 1m painting and mixed media construction. Featuring a cross motif but as a plaster, a dressing, a patch me up.
It is an attempt to show that covering the wounds is sometimes enough. That what we come out with is what we have to build on, work with, heal and adapt with; that what ever happened in the past made us who we are and gave a strength and resilience that is beyond the material we started with. It is a work about personal triumph, however that takes shape.

The accompanying sound piece is available for listening at:
