Oil painting on canvas. Unframed. 51x41x4 cm (20x16x1½ inches).
This abstract expressionist work is from the collection Entering the empty space.
After tragedy arrives the realisation that nothing, nothing, nothing is ever going to be the same again. There’s a period of enforced reflection. A time to consider how on earth to cope with the devastating effects of what happened?
It’s a time of great emptiness. The way forward is blocked and blurry.
Reassuringly, my future beckons from beyond the empty space – it is comforting, filled with soft Mediterranean colours and dancing shadows that attract me.
I am entering the empty space … I am moving on.
