‘The creative process is all about experimenting, letting go of the logical information that our brains have processed during our lifetimes, and embracing the concept of seeing our world in a much broader sense’. From my book – The Apple Exercise.
This image is from my ‘interconnections’ series which I started in 1982 and am still working on. It was inspired by a photograph I came across in a magazine of a Mother and Child who had been caught up in a Mexican drug war.
Although Mother and child were dead – the last action taken by the Mother was to try and protect and hold her child in her arms.
I was so moved by the image, that I had to honour the lives of these two human beings. The swans symbolise fluidity, intuition and emotions: – the hummingbird unseen magic, and the rocks and water the natural elements that we come from and will return to.
