My personal project titled The Art of Grieving is a visual series that explores grief following the sudden death of my Dad on the 3rd of April 2022
Grief is unexplainable painful, so suffocating and traumatising. It changes one in so many ways! You wake up everyday and have to actively deal with grief
For me, Grief is not one emotion! Grief is pain, sorrow, sadness, tough, ugly, trauma, confusion, numbness, shock. You are carrying an absence, an emptiness that is now part of your life. Watching my Dad pass away in front of me is something I will never get over. I can’t get the images of my Dad dying out of my head! I watched him take his last breaths . . .
The project takes the form of a series of photographs, paintings, writings, fragments of texts and moving images. I am documenting this project as a way to process my grief and also serve as a form of art therapy
This ongoing project aims to encourage openness and conversation about loss, bereavement and death
