Still Point In A Sea Change
Drawing - Pigment Ink On Paper
This drawing is more figurative than I usually go. After I started on the lines in the middle, they suggested the girl and the tree. Then when I tried shading in the girl (a little off register) the picture began to suggest a story about ideals and idealization as masks that we wear, sometimes by choice. Specifically the myths of women as the initiators of human awareness - of our very humanity - and how this world comes at the cost of our innocence. So here she is. The mythical woman pondering whether to take those steps into a wide and terrible world; the real woman pondering her identity and independence behind the weight of all that myth. Stay in the land of magic and beauty - always just out of reach and amorphous? Or move into the world of reality and at the same time help that world come into being?
