“Hold it Together”

“I feel the pressure to hold it together. Hold everything together. To nurture. Hold space for the pain, the ash, of others. I feel the pressure to be the ashtray. I also know that the world would be dirtier if there was no ashtray. I should be grateful for purpose, no?

Hold your pose, dear girl. Hold the space for those who still need to rise.” by Yvette Hess

Description

With my previous artworks, you would have come to realize that poetry- or the pouring of words, often accompany my paintings. This painting, an upcoming theme of surrealist painting and artworks, is no exception.

“Hold it Together”

“I feel the pressure to hold it together. Hold everything together. To nurture. Hold space for the pain, the ash, of others. Maybe it’s the pressure to be the ashtray. I also know that the world would be dirtier if there was no ashtray. I should be grateful for a purpose, no?

Hold your pose, dear girl. Hold the space for those who still need to rise.” 

Exploring the idea of  surrealist painting

Frida Khalo and  Leonora Carrington are two of my favourites. I think Frida is a bit more famous- but Leonora was of the last survivors of the surrealist movements. Frida rejected the label as a surrealist. Maybe I just love them because of the Mexican flavour!
