littlemissnoface asked: Hey, I've been wondering for a while now about your 'relationship map' piece. What does the soft sand represent? - Why will it wash away? Why is one string blue? Why is the paradise walled? Why is the girl on the right awake and asleep? Thank you <3 I really love this piece btw! I love it when art can keep you curious :D
Thank you for loving it! the soft sand- initially it was going to represent ‘firm sand’ as the foundations, the family that will never cease to be your family/support you in some way, but then as the imagery and words fell into place it was more soft sand that will wash away- family and friends that I’ll cease to be connected with, older family members who will die and friends who feel transitory.
The blue string had no other intent/meaning than to not be the same colour as the red(eg blood ties), and to fit with the piece. what does blue say to you though? that would interest me!
The paradise is walled as it feels very insular and safe. Yet the wall also indicates a boundary between the paradise and all the other people in the piece.
The girl- again this has less intent. The piece evolved very organically, at the beginning it was just a small portrait from some photographs, but then it became something else. I liked these special photographs, and the way they felt warm, and filled with love and it all just fell into place.
hope that explains it to you, thanks for asking!!
Trapped in my room while I pray the drunk people don’t pee on my site model which I stupidly left in the kitchen for a minute!
Now I wait for them to pass out so I can grab my model :/
They laugh menacingly… There is a bang… :’(
Oh the drunk people…
hey! so, I suck, and as you might’ve guessed I’m not updating this blog right now. i know, right? and I’m really sorry.
anyway, I’m gonna leave this tumblr online because I know new people who end up here still find it find it useful… but real talk - I might not be back for ages. slash ever :(
also, I just wanna thank everyone for all the love and support, and the follows and likes and reblogs and *especially* all the wonderful messages! this was just a very tiny fun idea, and I’m really happy that anyone at all liked it.
ok, love, kisses, licks, be wonderful and feel sexy and have all the fun! it’s been real.
