Cathartic collage. Self portraits about chronic painsoula2021-10-09T20:57:23+11:00
Collage has been a little more therapeutic for me than my usual art forms. I think it must have been finding a technique that I could manage and one that didn’t add to the fatigue and pain.
Cutting small pieces of paper and glueing, drawing, attaching was just so light and easy.
The painting of small pieces of paper and the careful ripping and tearing was like rocking. So gentle, so calming and at the same time feeling like I was handling my pain, expressing it and getting it out of my body and onto the art piece.
