Figuratively Speaking I, is an ode to the impetus of hope as it looks forward not only in the way the female figure gestures upward, reaches upward, with her physical body, but also as a tribute to the forward movement and momentum I find within myself in my own artistic practice. Hope spun from, and entangled within, as I set myself up in my first year as an art student, with a forward looking gaze at what I may be able to find within myself, and within the identity I share as an artist and art student. Hope of what I and we may garnish and gather from this artistic community we now share with others around us.
