 When I created this piece I had recently discovered that the color blue as its own separate color was a fairly new concept.  It had been thought of as a shade of white, or even red in some instances, and the first culture to recognize blue as its own color was the Egyptians about 2000 years ago.  It got me thinking about the way that humans don’t fully acknowledge that which we do not define, and how we used to think that blood runs blue in our veins until exposed to air, when it becomes red.  This idea is false, but the idea that blue was the color for the subconscious, for things not yet acknowledged or defined, really stuck with me. This pieces is for the things that have shaped us that we cannot define, that are imprinted like tattoos throughout our bodies and subconscious minds.  For the transformation those things may or may not bring as we deliver them into light. 

Watercolor and acrylic on watercolor paper. This piece is larger, so I will invoice you separately for the shipping. If you would like a shipping quote beforehand, please contact me at emerald.barkley@gmail.com.
