These works are a way of repairing, an offering and a form of prayer 

They are a way of making sense of my life my loves and beliefs

They are about questioning and the acceptance of not knowing

They reflect my inner and outer life 

 

They teach me and I follow

 

I cut up of old paintings, 

the macro has become micro and

and past and present have merged

 

The familial and collective transitioning of the world 

Piecing together a loved one’s psyche

 

Think of them as a cat. I cannot know their mind

I can offer saucers of milk

 

The work is complete when it has transcended the materials and a new presence is born

They are alive and ever changing

-BL, 2021
