Work • Fragility of Happiness
Medium • Eggs and Paint
Artwork Description: This "happy face" was created using painted eggs to describe the delicate balance of happiness fragile or fertile, strong, resilient and soft and precious at the same time. It has been suggested that the space in between the eggs symbolizes the space required to let the happiness in, which I think is lovely. We need to make sure we create space to allow the beauty in.
