If you are wanting to be creative and to express your thoughts or feelings through visual images you can use anything at hand fig: 1 and 2, I used broken shards of crockery, bread dough and plastic; fig 3, I used a squashed soda can and paper collage; fig 4, 5 and 6, I carved images from blocks of soap; fig 7, is balloons and paper mache; fig 8, is a leaf and a twig spray-painted gold and fig 9, is wire and paper. You too can look around your home or surroundings for everyday objects to use in creating something that represents something else which you want to portray or express.
Maybe you would like to try it out; let me know how it goes. It doesn’t have to be about your body it could be how you feel about Covid 19 or any other thing that comes to mind.
Take care – Life is a gift !
