second in my cardboardart series.. NIGHTNURSE

downsized

NIGHTNURSE

so here is the second contribution to my cardboardart, titled NIGHTNURSE … two more backgrounds are in the works. These weird characters … where do they come from ? I encountered them on my latest journey and will talk more about them later. i had so many positive and wonderful encounters and experiences on this journey.. but of course, there is always a not so nice side to everything, and slowly this side is also showing itself, emerging from deep within my soul. which is good.. a relief.. part of the process of acceptance and integration. so it is important to me to be able to put these characters down on paper.. or rather, on cardboard. however, so far i noticed something: yes, the characters are weird.. perhaps a bit scary at first.. but actually.. they are not. nightnurse is watchful, alert, vigilant, hearing everything and seeing everything. she protects and comforts… so is she really nightmarish? no.. she isn’t… she is just different…

Why Cardboard? the sizes of the paintings will vary.. as i use used cardboard.. the edges might be slightly off.. frayed.. the sides might be a bit crooked because they are cut-outs.. they can be tiny and they can be large. the main thing is.. they are used.. there is energy in them.. they are not pristine like watercolour paper that hasn’t been used before.. is clean and proper, almost virginal ..  this material has been in different hands, used, with a purpose, like a skin it is protecting the “insides” .. the goods.. the wares.. that is why i feel i can paint on this material.. it feels liberating, encouraging me to just “let go”.

This is probably a start into a new series within my cardboardart, which in itself is a new series.  … a set of weird characters … this is the first one, titled Brain Surgeon … two more backgrounds are in the works.
