Circle of Life – Teardrops… How it came to be

August 10, 2013
Circle of Life - Teardrops

Teardrops was accepted into the Artists' Guild of Spartanburg 40th Annual Juried Show It will be on display at the Spartanburg Art Museum, from September 3 to October 13.

Last spring we went to see the Frida & Diego exhibit at the High Museum in Atlanta. Even though the whole exhibit was impressive, it was the pain in her paintings which impacted me most. Her suffering was almost palpable. The physical pain caused by the many injuries she suffered in an accident, and the emotional pain because of her inability to have children as a result of it.

Before leaving the museum we went to see one of our favorite’s permanent pieces, the Anish Kappor fragmented mirror and, of course, I took some pictures of its many reflections and changing colors.

Once home, all those emotions took shape. I created the teardrops using pieces of the mirror’s photos and used another one for the background. The resulting image conveys not just pain but also hope.
