Carmen Leiss - MA Show 2018
MelancholiaMelancholia combines the pleasure of reflection and stillness, with the mourning of loss or the yearning for something. Being reflective, alone, withdrawn and thoughtful doesn’t fit into today’s society. We only wait for the future, expecting happiness by tomorrow whilst trying to suppress our yesterdays. This work is a collection of imagery, poetry and text in response to the subject of melancholia, and differentiates the mood from sadness and depression, revealing the bitter sweetness, beauty, and potential it brings. The book includes handmade paper with flower petals capturing the transience of beauty.
