To mark a new beginning after my mum's passing I made this work.
I have been and am still recovering from the loss, and it left me powerless.
I started with this image to show the transformation from body to soul, to feel the embrace of eternity to be merged again with light. I felt this is how souls move on.
But then, after talking to my daughter, who saw a grand sorceress in it, even without the staff, the feeling of the image changed for me and I felt the urge to express, to release the immense energy that is inside me so I proceeded with this feeling.
This work gives me power, power to overcome even the most difficult and testing experience like death, to still see how much there is to live for. To divert my energy towards life, to face any storm that might come my way head on and based on my will to survive I embrace the light, embrace this life energy without fear and move on.
