Mixed media and acrylic on card 40 x 50cm
"Recently I have learnt that it is ok to be submerged into darkness. Night is inevitable, as is the day. I’ve felt loneliness that can feel thick and murky and I’ve found that it’s about opening up to the dark which will lead to light. With Ships in the night, I wanted to capture the contrast between beauty and isolation that comes from living in a secluded rural area, where the dark seems darker, and to visualise the sense of longing for something unknown."
