Is the Passing of Time an Emotion?

MixedEmotion of Change, 2022

The drawing is to question time and emotion. During the current pandemic many of us have had the opportunity to reflect and explore what is important, to question our actions, to consider the impact of change. Perhaps leading us to consider experiences of our fore bearers and whether or not our current lived experiences are different from the Spanish flu of 1918, the 2 world wars, the atrocities of the holocaust. The gentleman in my mixed media portrait is that of a former resident of St Kilda, who may well have had to make the painful decision to evacuate his lifetime home in 1934 when living conditions and life on the island became untenable.
