I am Always with You by Ann Wood

Listening and seeing has always been at the center of my artwork. I really mean listening to intuition, the voice which tells you what to do next. Cats are keen listeners; you can see it in the eyes.
In this piece the cat is bottle-like in form. He is here to receive her message that people that have cared for you and loved you are always with you even when they are physically not around.
The background is made of dyed bark paper pieced and cut like an old quilt covering the conversation between these two with comfort. This is a delicate balance where glass containers surround her feet. One interuption and the fragile balance could be disrupted.
