Mia's eyes are of such beautiful and rare green. But it looks like the deep serenity that we used to find in them is gone.
Did she cry? Is she upset?
Almost surely. Because this wound, oh my, it must hurt badly. And it doesn't look like it is going to heal any time soon.
We can try to stitch as best as we can, we can try to stop the hemorrhage, but we know, the earth is already tainted, earth and blood are already mixed.
There's a Tear in the Walls of the World, and as the envelope says, this is so true in Japan. A lot of bad cracks in the Wall, and a lot of tears. Think of all the thread we will need to mend THAT wound, not to mention all the others.
I don't even need to mention that this piece is a fab, you already know. The colors are a-mazing and the brush strokes are blending into each other so perfectly.
The format is A4, and thanks to a couple of cuts the small panels can be folded into various combinations. Paint and printed words, the building blocks of a Wounded Wall.
Like in a lot of Cheryl's work some parts are deliberately left in the mist of one's imagination, the link to a different piece.
"Nothing will remain of it"? That's up to us.
Cheryl, thank you for sending such mind-blowing pieces. I always fell like they are made especially for the sweet pea. She couldn't be more chuffed.
