A New Life – mixed media collage – …. which started over 2 years ago ……

GONE is now A New Life DOWNSIZED

A New Life – Ein Neues Leben … – some of you know about this … and some not. i was going to spend a holiday with my children in my homecountry – i lived abroad at the time – and went for a routine control and suddenly was confronted with the diagnosis.. breastcancer.. triple-negative, stage 3 ……. acting fast was top priority .. and my world turned upside down – that was in mid 2016.
the treatment is over… successfully so, i went for 3 monthly checkups until january this year.. from now on it is 6 months.
during this time.. art was (and still is of course) my constant companion.. i thank God that i can do art, express myself in this way .. it is a great help.. because my life has changed completely and radically .. no details now tho.
i realize that my art has changed over the years. it is becoming more and more direct, straight to the point.. no fuss.. no roundabouts .. i enjoy painting on cardboard.. recycling in my own way.. i love cardboard.. it has gone through many hands.. has collected energy, it has “power” .. it was used to protect things.. to transport things .. and that makes it special.

in this case… it is a mixed media collage… the woman is painted/drawn on cardboard, using wax crayons, acrylics and acrylic ink .. this is glued on to a newspaper which i have been using for the past 1.5 years to protect my working table, well worn and used in itself.. this, in turn, is glued onto watercolour paper; the “frame” is in acrylics.. the writing in acrylic ink. the size is 14.8 x 21 centimeters.

i would like to thank my wonderful children, & some great friends for their wonderful, continued support.. and a special thank you goes to the Swiss Cancer League (Krebsliga Schweiz) for all their support, care and help !
much love and light to all fellow warrior sisters and brothers out there !!! ♥♥♥
