These paintings are from a project entitled, Love Letters From The Labyrinth. I laid a rope labyrinth in my back garden in September 2019 which I then covered with leaves from the surrounding trees as they fell during autumn. I walked this labyrinth often and wrote about it afterwards recording the thoughts and feelings I gathered from each experience. Each walk gave me different things to think about and often delivered wisdom I very much needed as I negotiated a new path for myself following the death of my mum the year before. The title comes from the fact I felt each walk resulted in a love letter from the wisdom-filled part of myself. I was teaching myself how to work through the grief I carried with compassion and understanding.
More paintings will be added each week in the run up to my NEOS 2021 exhibition with Val Thomson in Aberdeen city from 11th – 19th September.
30 x 30 cm on cradled panel.
