AIC215 “A Breakdown of Communications.” Final Thoughts and Reflections.

“Sometimes what we call tragedy, at least in the theatre, are really case histories. They’re based on the central figure, and things happen to that person, and they’re called tragedy because they’re extremely sad. But tragedy always has a glorious thing happen at the end of it. That’s what the catharsis is.”

Derek Walcott

This piece has been a real labour of catharsis for me.  It has dealt with a period of time that was beyond stressful.  I think allowing myself the time to work through this in a different way to therapy and medication has been a positive one. 

I am incredibly sorry that I did not get the opportunity (due to the Covid 19 lockdown) to show this work in the space it was designated for, in our final show. Maybe, like the situation it defines; it is left unfulfilled.

It is of some compensation that I was able to use a spare workspace to place all my final pieces to give a flavour of how it would have looked. Sadly, the space was not large enough for how I envisioned the final placement, but at least I saw them all together.

A Breakdown of Communication – initial set up

I have included a selection of close-up shots of the table top, simply because I love them.

I have blogged about the construction of the paintings here , the sculptural elements here and the sketchbook here.

Thank you to all the people who have read and commented on my blogs this year. Hope to “see” you all next year.

Living in Newcastle I have access to great landscape; sea, urban, country and city which I am continually inspired by. Starting my artistic qualification in my 50's allows me the benefit of long years admiring others art and a burning need to create my own.
