This was by far one of the coolest projects I’ve gotten to collaborate on! A friend and colleague asked me to explore an idea with her. As a massage therapist, Geraldine found herself asking, “How does one translate touch?” Immediately my mind was swimming with images: swirls of energy changing colors together, our skin smiling via pores opening as it calms, then the color and unevenness of watercolor and texture of acrylic paint chunks invaded my mind…. And with each of these images I was associating an experience. Some brought surrounding warm air, others brought curiosity to push the idea further… after all ‘touch’ encompasses so much for each of us individually.
We decided to do an experiment together. These visual thoughts were captured before and after a massage – How can visuals help us understand an experience such as a massage? Thanks to Geraldine of Primitive Healing for collaborating!
Perhaps next time there will be drawing ‘during’ too!
