Ode to Anxiety – Personal Work
A couple of months ago, my baby was quite ill. My anxiety was all over the place, couldn’t sleep really. Every night I went to my desk and hand cut it a little bit of this piece. It’s completely handmade. Took me 3 months to complete, doing and hour now and then when everyone else was sleeping in the house. Papercutting helps me to focus and relax when I need it the most.
I called it “Ode to Anxiety” because that’s how I felt it. Something growing and growing like a plant coming from the stomach, taking over everything that was around. I’m very fond of this piece, it’s very different of what I normally do. Finished it when Felix was better and cured.
