These pieces speak to how getting old is impacting me...the physical, the mortality of it. As challenging as those two aspects are, Ive also found this aging experience quite liberating, challenging and motivating me in my art to go beyond my usual comfort zone.
The recent deaths of my sister and two very close, childhood friends hit me hard, making me take stock of my life journey thus far and where Im heading. Covid-19 has surely added another dimension to all of it.
That ticking clock people talk about? I hear it. But Ive decided not to hear it as tolling, but as my new theme song.
