The “Reflections” project is in it’s last week. The space is being redecorated and a “closing down sale” will be held on the last day of the exhibit, 30th March, when t-shirts reserved by those who attended the preview evening will be available for collection.

“Reflections” has turned out to be more than I anticipated. It has been an art therapy project and a project that has affected me in a way which I hadn’t expected.

Reflecting on the theme of Milkwood’s current exhibition “Make Room,” it seems that having the mental space to create, as well as the physical space and financial resources, is absolutely essential. This can be difficult to achieve when attitudes seem oppressive, conditions are detrimental and systems are obstructive.

Having the physical space and financial resources and creating a piece about my anxieties about who I am as a person may seem like a wasted opportunity. “Reflections” is really about wanting to break free from perceptions that have hindered my ability to be a creative person.
