The Phisical Inevitability of Death in the Mind of the Living
Marker pen (Copic marker), felt tip pen, gel pen
In my work I have sought to depict the differences between the effect of an individual’s death upon the people who were close to them, and the effect that it has on a wider scale. Paradoxically, while an individual’s death intensely affects those directly connected, on a larger scale it is rendered inconsequential by the passage of time. This means that, ultimately, they have not had a lasting effect on the world, and are forgotten.
