Half Full

Over the last few years I have made a number of daily drawings of a glass of water with a diary text that reflects my own ups-and-downs of life. The glass of water doesn’t change, I change. I’m drawing together my internal and external reality. Through making these drawings I can monitor whether I feel good, whether I am enjoying my work, whether my then-boyfriend was behaving well to me.  And the sheer repetitiveness of this very simple act becomes very reassuring – perhaps nothing was resolved, but still my thoughts are managed and acknowledged, (and images are made) so there is a sense of accomplishment.
