I’ve been discovering the power art has to help process change. This project was about people with whom I went through a lot, and didn’t come out the other side, but who are still in my heart. I wanted to be able to let the heaviness of those past relationships go, and refocus my memories on when we were at our happiest.

Light and Shadow
This one was new for me, for a number of reasons. One being the treatment of positive and negative space: instead of Person being positive and everything else being negative, this was light and shadow. It meant dealing more with features and details than I’m used to, and I ended up with two complete images, which furthers the whole positive/negative space thing.
Also, I have got to resist the urge to work so small!! These images are ~4×6, which meant that some of the pieces were the size of dust (literally: at one point I thought a piece of dust was one of my pieces) – ridiculous.
