"The problem is that we don’t directly associate change with what progress is. We only want more of the same, then with more on top of it. But newness can’t be compartmentalized. When it arrives, it shakes hands with every part of your identity and visits every room in the house.
So, with every improvement that we seek to make, we must first ask ourselves if we are also okay with meeting a new version of each sacred thing in our lives. You can’t both run from one and toward the other."
The original photo in this piece was taken on Green Island in Taiwan. In Chinese culture, the monstera plant (whose outline I have used in this artwork) symbolizes long-standing tradition and values. Asian foliage to me, however, symbolizes the overhaul I'd been wanting in my life for so long, which I've also symbolized as that day's sunrise. This creative revival of moving to Taiwan brought to light a lot of principals I hadn't realized I was operating on. Some were holding me back and didn't need to stay. Others, I was able to focus on with more intent.
What started around March 2019 has become a year-long spring cleaning of sorts and now here I am a year later, going full-time freelancer with all of that space I spent 2019 making.
