⚬ Description ⚬

This is an archival print of the original collage. Fits standard 8” x 10” frame.
The original piece was cut and pasted by hand from collection of used and vintage books.

Imagine life as juggling between work, family, health, friends, and spirit and each one is portrayed with different symbolism in this collage; with egg representing family, apple representing health, parachute representing friendship (when you are down, your friends lift you up), baby angel with the fire torch representing the inner spirit, the fire inside you, and ice cube ball representing work. I came to realization that work is just like an ice cube and in particular, an ice cube ball that also looks like a pearl here. Work can be very deceiving, you might think it is the most valuable thing in life but at the end of the day, it is just nothing. In fact, when you hold an ice cube too tight, it burns your hand, and when you hold it for too long, it melts. Eventually, it melts apart anyway and it is not within your control. “The truth of the matter is, the most important thing I want out of life is _________ .” What is the first thing that springs to your mind? To be truly happy, I hope you strive for balance in your life.
