I’ve just been emailing my inspiratrice explaining the importance of my ‘bloody textiles’ series. And in the mail I made a comment along the lines that this is all coming to the surface as I evidently can’t stomach it anymore!!
I’m so slow!
No wonder that’s where it’s felt right to place the wound. Because I can’t stomach it any more. I cannot tolerate it being inside anymore – it makes me sick to the stomach. No wonder it felt instinctively right. When you get a feeling ‘in the pit of your stomach’ its the location of a visceral response – in other words a deep inward feeling rather than related to the intellect.
Clever, clever subconscious!
