My thoughts in approaching this collaged/torn painting was to connect the story of Christmas with the reality of today.
‘Who is journeying, homeless today?’ The figure on the left, facing and reflected in distant light speaks of hope and a future – gifted to some of us. The figure on the right, trapped in darkness/poverty/homelessness or isolation appears excluded and disconnected. I have used torn edges and boxed shapes to talk of this.
