Gardens bring a multitude of emotions to many.
Be it a place of work, of solace, reflection or relaxation a garden is always changing through the ebb and flow of the seasons.
My mosaic depicts the beauty and flow of life as a garden with death a part of this cycle.
The subject looks beyond her current life towards the stars pondering the journey ahead and reflecting on her life left behind.
The garden she has nurtured throughout her life spills around her as a spreading blanket of love that will support and nurture those who have cared for her.
The girl stares at the night sky, reaching out for the stars, and the amorphous universe, remembering her connection with the cosmos while her soul leaves her mortal body and floats in the galaxy. It is her journey from finite to infinity and beyond where the existence of the five elements of her body are shown by the use of colours, like mustard and blue for earth and water, movements for wind and celestial objects to denote fire. Her journey beyond horizon is for her to feel infinite freedom and eternal love.
Sweet Rose Lorraine
By Veta Holmes
This is lithograph print of sketches I made of my beautiful mum Rose Lorraine who suffers from dementia. She has been in care for over 3 years. It has been heartbreaking to watch each progressive stage of this cruel disease take more of her away from us. Every moment with her is precious. You take the good days with the bad. We drink tea and reminisce about the past. We sing songs and look through photo albums. She is less mobile and sleeps more. As some abilities are being lost her sense of humour is still there.
'Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched in some way so that your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there' My sister pregnant at the time gave me this quote months before she was diagnosed with cancer. She gave birth to a beautiful daughter but sadly lost her battle five months later.
