These weird characters … where do they come from ? I encountered them on my latest journey... i had so many positive and wonderful encounters and experiences on this journey.. but of course, there is always a not so nice side to everything, and slowly this side is also showing itself, emerging from deep within my soul. which is good.. a relief.. part of the process of acceptance and integration. Why Cardboard? it has been used.. there is energy in it.. it is not pristine like watercolour paper that hasn’t been used before.. is clean and proper, almost virginal .. but this material has been in different hands, used, with a purpose, like a skin it is protecting the “insides” .. the goods.. the wares.. that is why i feel i can paint on this material.. it feels liberating, encouraging me to just “let go”.
to protect the work both sides of the cardboard are gessoed several times.
