Destruction makes way for creation


Creation and destruction are cycles of life, the universe relies upon both and it happens all around us as the seasons pass. As people with illness or disability, we often see this daily as we struggle with pain, mobility and even operations. I have been working on a series of artworks where I “destroy” existing paintings of mine to create new work. Here, I am sanding back the layers of paint on a painting that a collector kindly (and bravely) returned to me for this purpose. Let’s hope they like what they get back?
