The act of burial is an infamous and archaic ritual widly recognised for its spiritual symbolism of growth, decay and rest. To perform a burial - that is, by burying a 'thing', you are giving over the 'thing' to change, both physically and spiritually.
In Feeding, spitting and feeding again I am allowing the material to rest and grow, with time and on its own terms, away from artist intervention. The resulting work is not only delicate, but grotesque as reflected in the language both in the title, and the marks 'created by the act' on the paper. Letting go the autonomical process of creation, allowing the materials to decide the outcome, not soley artists intervention allows for creative freedom, appreciation and inspiration.
