This piece was inspired by the Taylor Swift lyrics, “Maybe we got lost in translation. Maybe I asked for too much.”…I made it shortly after a potential relationship fell apart because I had asked for more commitment, which the other person wasn’t willing to give. I felt so lost and confused and unworthy and wanted to try and communicate that with this piece. The majority of the painting is made of book pages and map pieces. Books are used to communicate knowledge or stories. Maps are used to travel and figure out where we are going. In this piece, I have taken both of those and torn them up, marked over them, and covered them with paint to represent the loss of communication and loss of certainty of where a relationship was heading.
The original mixed media piece (India ink, map pieces, and tissue paper) is 11 x 14 inches. I created this piece on Rives BFK paper and mounted it on MDF board. There are two pieces of hanging hardware on the back of the MDF board. The piece is signed and dated on the back. Price includes shipping within the U.S. Images 1-3 in gallery.
