Trauma, Love, Fire
acrylic on canvas
101 x 152cm
When thinking of trauma I thought about the death of my mother, of which I still feel the hurt of her passing.
Centre is me, the person I am today with my hands resting below my chest, as this is something I hold close to my heart.
Seen also as a shadow or another person standing there, represents the presence of my Old People/Ancestors, while the radiating pink and red tones depict a guided healing.
The outer surrounding area shows the past and ongoing support from Family and Friends.
