Stories I Tell Myself About Reality
8 x 8
Acrylic and collage on box panel
After a long absence, I am returning to my blog and weekly Illustration Friday submissions. The last year and a half has been (and continues to be) a long and arduous voyage, full of loss, fear, disappointment, guilt, and unexpected moments of hope and courage. We experience life as an ongoing narrative that we tell ourselves to explain how events fit into our personal story. I like the metaphorical strength of collage as a narrative device and hope to produce an ongoing series of collage works based on the theme "Stories I Tell Myself."
I feel like Odysseus.....
