Title: The Things That Hold Us Back, The Thing That Keeps Us Together
Medium: Mixed media (polymer clay, wood, yarn and others)
My artwork represents my relationship with art making. While I enjoy drawing, I often struggle to find time to be able to do it continuously over extended periods of time.
The pencils symbolise my desire to draw and the strings represent the daily tasks that keep me from drawing. Yet at the same time, these daily tasks are necessities for me to sustain myself in order to make art.
