Some Candy Talking

2017, 8 x 8 inches, Collage on Paper

“A taste of something warm and sweet
That shivers your bones and rises to your heat”
Art inspired by the lovely song of The Jesus and Mary Chain.

"These collages are a record of a very tortuous, lonely, and funny journey through the land of recovery in 2017 where I was in a constant state of mixed feelings about life: between Bob Marley’s “Life is good” and Aldous Huxley “Maybe this world is another planet's hell.” It is often at the most unexpected times that we turn to art to soul-search, to make a higher connection and commune with something intangibly bigger than ourselves. Sometimes this may involve disturbing expressions of darkness as well as light." Carol Santos
