Thanks For Being There To Hold My Ears As They Burn

Completed: 2021

“The piece centres on love, support and holding space for another. In the immediate physical surroundings, a new park is being made, along with a stage, playground…etc. The middle mural calls for patience and understanding for all people. For instance, the red sweater character is not having a good day, holding his knees, the second character is there to hold space for them in support, noticed by the body positioning. Let the space be a place for connecting and a core driver of compassionate exchanges.”
