I always have all kinds of recycleble materials in my studio. I had already cut out some pictures from an old calendar that I wanted to use for another project, and I have stacks old boxes that I like to use as a canvas. Why not practice on cheap materials first, eh?
I started this project with no other idea than to use my new gouache paint box. As I was cutting, assembling and glueing, my thoughts wandered of. I had to think of my little boy who is so unhappy at school, and the image of a child, disconnected appeared.
"I have a body that feels, a head that thinks and hands that make, but how do I make them all work together? How do I make sense?"
