|Coffea arabica - a work in progress|
A few more holes filled in... and now I am wondering if I'd like to leave one of the holes as it is - blank. I am looking at the piece and I rather like having a leaf missing. It's the next step after my Monstera problema piece. No longer do I want to portray naturally occurring holes to satisfy my interest in the imperfect and punctured/incomplete. I now want the holes to be man-made and deliberate. I like them. I am fascinated by the way the mind works when confronted with this senario. It sees a hole and wants to fill it in and make is whole. Well my mind does anyway and I wonder why that is. My brain wants to know what happened to the missing leaf - where did it go and why isn't it there? What's it being used for, if anything? I like that questioning very much. It's thrilling. I am going to carry on with this thought process as I am extremely excited by it.
