The third and last print from 'the love triad' series - a series that goes through the phases of love: from falling in love, to being in love, to the end of love. All prints are a mix of illustrations and words from some of my favourite writers, because although a picture paints a thousand words, a few carefully handpicked words can paint the only picture you may need. This series is about celebrating love in all shapes and forms and is dedicated to all romantics who will always keep trying and keep doing it all over again.
Heartbreak is quite honestly the worst. It overtakes your entire being, all your thoughts, all your decisions and judgment. It’s painful and not fun at all. This is the time when you get cynical and your self-esteem is probs at its lowest. And this is also the time when you need a lot of tenderness and gentleness and a soft touch. Alice Walker’s poem is exactly that tender embrace you need. She talks about how to cope with disappointment in any shape it may come in your life. ‘Expect nothing’, she encourages, ‘live frugally on surprise’ and ‘make of it a parka for your soul.’ This idea of having a protective shield around your heart, a parka or jacket to keep your soul warm and safe through these hard times is what heartbreak means to me. It’s a reminder to be easy on yourself and protect that little heart of yours because it’s all you’ve got.
