Nothing to Fix is part of a series addressing love and loss. The over-arching content is the individual’s struggle to achieve an ideal state while knowing that nothing is permanent. In recent works, I have been exploring the prolonged grieving that I experience for my mother and for my deceased ex-husband. Nothing to Fix adds to this my recent separation from my husband. While my mind continues to search out a way to repair the marriage, the damage is done, and it is time for acceptance. The strange mix of landscape and interior is an environment that invites introspection and discovery, a place to grieve and a place to repair.
