Title: tictoc 2010
Materials: mixed media on khadi paper
'tictoc' originated from a quick angry emotional sketch I made while being 6 months pregnant. I then forgot about it until I started a new sketchbook and I scribbled it on to the pages. It wasn't until I was 5 days overdue I decided to create something using the sketch as the foundation and attempt to reconcile with the feelings I felt at that time in February and mix it with the emotions that were running through me while being overdue. Unfortunately I didn't get to finish it before my baby girl arrived but carried on afterwards still tuning into the feelings and emotions I felt before. The anticipation, the lack of control, the unknown, strange and weird.
