I've been given a huge Insight into my Mixed Media Assemblage artwork, straight from the Universe herself. I used to think that my mixed media artwork was completely and totally about Creation about formation and birth and it is of course, but it is also very much about destruction too.
When I find something that wants to be something else,or something more there is always and I mean always a deconstruction phase. Whether it's paint that has to be removed or a shadowbox frame that needs to be taken apart completely or a wine glass stem that needs to be cut off.
It's the complete picture of both birth and death, construction and deconstruction, chaos and order that is the actual Total Creation process, it's not "one sided"! I see the Goddess in her own being, both as the creatrix and destructor! Life is the total process, the light and dark.
Thank you Universe, I am deeply grateful that you speak to me and through me.
This is the the Aztec Goddess Coatlicue. She represents the devouring mother, in whom both the womb and the grave exist.
