I’m not sure why I made this, probably trying to think about people who talk about having lost themselves (and thus, go on a journey of finding themselves). I don’t think I ever “lost myself”, although on some occasions have wondered where I’ve been. How about you? Are you lost or found?

What if I really want to give you an emotional experience with this drawing, and yet you rationalise? Or what if I was rationalising in this drawing and what you see is an emotional experience? Can you do both?

When I made this, all I wanted to do was count to 10 so I don’t cut someone’s face. Now, in the artist’s sense, this was an exercise in seeing how the shapes could fit together and how the colours distinguish the shapes without overlapping. Have you ever thought that making a drawing could save a person’s life?
