Conceptually, I have been pondering the notion of a soul. The concept of an empty soul versus a full soul formed. When something is full, it is vibrant, abundant and alive. When something is empty, it is bare, vacant and unoccupied. It is stripped of all character and lacks energy. It is ready to be filled up. I chose to concentrate on these two words, empty and full, and then the metaphor for the soul appeared, a tear. Tears cause bending, breaking, molding and bring restoration. Tears empty, cleanse, heal and return hope. Tears are of the soul.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
- Pablo Picasso
