“...Inner meeting”. Featuring Kim Windvogel, @blazingnonbinary
I am fascinated by those who embark on a journey, both consciously and unconsciously- of meeting their true selves. When I look at Kim, the posts, videos and what Kim proclaims to be and not be- I feel like it is a gathering of emotions and a meeting of Kim’s most intimate and glorious parts. It’s like seeing a movie, a deliberate choosing and letting go of and allowing. Such beautiful freedom.
Seeing that I have been embarking on creating work around my own experiences within this skin and beyond it: finding , making and allowing freedom, I was inspired to create this digital portrait of Kim.
Thank you Kim for giving me permission to use your image- and one print, will definitely be sent your way!
The oil painting series currently in the Group show entitled “Margins” at @eclecticacontemporary forms part of my own inner exploring and acceptance of the self. And accepting that the journey is just that, a journey. If there’s no destination, there’s less pressure to do or fix anything, because you can’t get lost- just journey. Eyes on the road.
I see the work I made using Kim’s images as a celebration of this experience - what can be created and experienced within this body.
The 3 oil paintings form part of a group show at Eclectica Contemporary Gallery in Cape Town, South Africa for Womxns Month in August 2020.
