My Vision of Peace
This piece is an attempt to express juxtaposed feelings of drifting, dissolving into nothingness - not connected to anything and no clear boudaries, as well as being interwoven.

Simultaneously, it is the earth personified, a recognizable human face, combined with structures that resemble satellite photographs of the planet from outer space.

I believe that realising we are all a part of the same bigger picture goes a long way toward compassion, understanding, mutual respect for fellow humans, other life forms and the living planet as a whole. Inner and outer peace, and love, is only possible through acceptance - the conviction that everyone and everything plays an equally important part in the greater scheme of things.


Medium
This piece was created tradigitally, a combination of traditional and digital processes. The face is pastel pencil on paper, the background/textures were created with coffee, also on paper. Both were scanned and then overlayed digitally to create the final image.
