Mere Mortal

Mere Mortal

A lot of people close to me are sick or have loved ones that are sick right now and I feel a sense of helplessness because I obviously cant save them or cure their illnesses. This piece was in response to this helplessness and is about being bound by this internal struggle and the fear of others' (and my own) mortality. I wanted it to show the external manifestation of the internal anxiety and a sense of tending to this pain as a means to process, appreciate and ultimately accept it. I want to explore further the simultaneous weight and value of it and I want to add more handwork to push the idea of the mending and "nesting" or living with these feelings.
