10.15 on a Saturday Night, diptych, oil on board, each piece 16″ x 12″.
Inspired by The Cure’s song of the same name these pieces were created to celebrate my love of a band whose music has been integral to my wellbeing throughout my life. I am big on lyrics linking them to episodes and feelings I have experienced. When you have bi-polar, relationships and navigating life can be hard and non-sensical. Actions can make sense to one person but not the other. Fairly natural feelings can be escalated and it is hard to ‘belong’. Sometimes music just makes so much sense, songs become written about you, for you, by people you will never meet but somehow they get you…..and that feels good.
