Lemuria, No. 2, 2018
Acrylic and pastel on canvas, 152H x 96W cm
Lemuria, No. 2 several months to complete. It was an ambitious start, and then it came to a point where I was struggling to find its way. Nothing was coming out the way I wanted it to, even when I consciously ‘let it go’. And so it sat there on the side. I didn’t even want to look at it. Then one day, I pulled myself together and began to begin fresh, but without white-washing half or all of what I had completed earlier. I recreated a composition and overlaid the existing flesh. It took several more weeks to complete this, always somewhat hesitant of the outcome, and as if by some force, the painting was telling me how to proceed, whereas before, I was leading and forcing it into something that wasn’t meant to be. It has become a new soul, enriched with colors and complexity, chaos and order that is of its own voice. I had to really let go of my inclination to dictate it’s path.
