When We Are Gone

This abstract work shows unity that we are hoping to experience when we are no longer around. The colours symbolise the shape that shifts from time to time as the spiritual being. I have used intricate lines to depict a visual similarity with ‘stitchings’ which I identify as the enjoining ingredient that brings us together with those that have passed on, our ancestors: We are torn apart from them by death but joined together by it as well.
