Is it only once we feel warmth and security as a stout and hearty beat that we can relax in our bodies? In our lives? It seems it is only then that a body feels poised to withstand, heartily, the buffeting winds and assaults of systemic coldness, with an inner warmth.
When a body's security [blanket] is in place, even for the tiniest of moments, a body can feel safe and warm; able to radiate strength and love. But until then...The coldness of this world can consume fully.
This series seeks to show the struggle toward finding feelings of security, with oneself and world. This work seeks to depict a metaphor of the wretchedness any one may go through to struggle to find warmth and security. For, the psyche may need layers of comfort within to feel comfortable with the outer and inner worlds, as there are layers of feelings, habits, and attitudes we learn toward ourselves and towards the world. The psyche in all of us needs our security [blankets].
