11x14" ink on paper
What was just undefined swirls and blobs in earlier compositions is finally something defined, something I can articulate and use as a great tool.
These hyenas, mushrooms, vultures, beetles, ants, worms, millipedes, and snails all turn the dead and decomposing facets of myself into energy,
into the soil I can grow from.
The point of the examining and scanning isn't just to identify and suppress;
but to identify,
and be educated.
They're about being able to activate these aspects of my personal ecosystem to help me grow through and with hard times
instead of simply trying to pile on more experiences atop the "bad" or "yucky" ones.
