When thinking of time, my thoughts were instantly drawn to mortality, specifically the ticking of the clock that is in your head when living with a life limiting condition, that sense of time slipping away but also the need to make the time you have count. I began creating this piece with the intention of painting bodies with decay, but the work gradually formed into something far less morbid and dark as it often does with me.
I began painting blossoms alongside the cracked, breaking bodies, my thoughts travelling to growth and new life, the circle of life and time constantly evolving, bodies returning to earth, feeding the blossoms just bursting to emerge. I look at this piece and I see beauty in the sadness, something that I often feel is true when dealing with illness or disability, the knowledge of your own mortal limits but seeing the beauty of it anyway.
