I made four, one to represent each of my four children.
My Personal Statement:
My work is about security and protection, in particular with regard to my children. It is about the journey from the safe cocooned environment experienced as babies to breaking free as adults. Self contained cells, start joined together but slowly start to break away. It is about the painful process of letting go.
I'm sure those of you sending your babies off to school for the first time this week will know a little of what I mean.
It has been quite a relief to get everything sent off. The new module starts on Monday which is the start of my second level. I'm now a third of the way through my course and it all feels as though it is about to move up a notch. The new module is Visual Studies which is a visual and practical study of the human figure and is one I've been looking forward to. I've signed up for life drawing classes which should be interesting.
