I've been absorbed in this intricate doodle for nearly a week. I found the repetitive marks extremely relaxing, allowing me space to think and process my thoughts, especially after a busy day.
The dove, symbolic of peace was also representative of the art work I was making and the space I was allowing myself. I wanted the bird to be hidden amidst the chaos of the other marks, taking the viewer a little time to find its outline and consider the other shapes in the composition. The image is a metaphor of our busy lives and trying to find some peace and sense in the middle of the chaos. I believe that you can have a real sense of 'inner' peace even when everything around you is going wrong.
