I process the world around me through my art practice, letting memory and intuition fuse through the materials in my studio. Using found papers, photographs, water based paint, ink and drawing materials, this piece was created by layering, peeling off, adding, and painting over. I fully employ the quality of chance throughout my process. My method resembles a slowing pendulum; wildly swinging at the start and eventually falling into balance. This mixed media collage grew out of a longing for a place that no longer exists. I willingly uprooted from city life and while I had made promises to come back and visit, the world changed and I never looked back. My memories of this chapter are now fading but still very much intertwined with my current frame of mind. I am in limbo; in the act of leaving, or having just recently left, yet fully disconnected from the city grind, the heartbeat I once knew so closely.
