-the supposed alchemical process of changing base metals into gold.
-the action of changing or the state of being changed into another form.
-the conversion or transformation of one species into another.
Over the past few years, I have constantly asked myself, how I can maintain balance when everything around me is out of control.
We are living through one crisis after another. Coming at us from all directions, huge global problems, affecting us all. Climate change, the pandemic, war, famine, earthquakes etc.
The impact is devastating and constant, with no time to catch our breath or recover before the next wave hits.
Personally, I’ve been feeling shock, overwhelming anger, anxiety, frustration and sadness.
This body of work is my antidote to a world gone crazy.
Transforming myself into a lioness, a cat, a rabbit, a reindeer, an eagle or a bear.
Calling on the attributes of each animal to give me strength, balance, calm, wisdom or endurance.
