Acrylic, conte and pencil on birch.

14x14x2"

This work is part of my Colder series. It is an exploration of detachment. This passage by Jane Hirshfield inspired this work and this series: "You must try, the voice said, to become colder. I understood at once. It's like the bodies of gods: Cast in bronze, braced in stone. Only something heartless could bear the full weight."

Inspired by spring 2021 and the thought that the Covid lockdown might be behind us. Funny, how wisely plants mix saturated and unsaturated colours in their floral offerings.
