Yesterday whilst on the process of setting up my website again, I revisited my artist statement under my bio. I used to have a paragraph explaining my trajectory, and it is still there but I realised it does not explain where I am now. It explained where I was before, but I am years away from that. I barely remember my time when I was a therapist. I don’t dream with my client’s horrors anymore.
So I added a short line that explained where I am now. It said ” Somewhere along this path I became a mother and my two boys took everything over. Currently I am in the process of finding how to integrate the artist I want to be with the mother that I am.” I kept it short even though it is already year 5 or 6 of this quest, but I don’t know what else could I say about it other than whenever I get a peek, even if it is just for a split second, of how they work together, it is beautiful.
Farewell 03 (2015)
I went to Czech Republic on july 2015 as a lecturer to supervise and assist photographers during the 4 days KontAKTphoto workshop organizedyearly by Gallery4 Cheb. I went with my youngest boy. He was 1.5 years old.
During the workshop I shot 5 different images for that work that I called Farewell.
Some students gave me afterwards some really magnificent backstage pictures.
So back then I found a way, and here we are still, finding our way.
