The Weight of Memory
by Emerald Barkley
The Weight of Memory is an original watercolor skull painting by Emerald Barkley about the quiet and suffocating nature of anxiety.
I often think about my anxiety in terms of birds and feathers – quick, fluttering, quietly suffocating. A thunderous whisper in my heart and in my throat, and an overlay to any experience.
A good trick that I have learned is to ground myself in the present moment with my senses. What am I seeing, smelling, feeling, tasting, hearing?
Even as I ground, two feet firmly present in the sense of now, there is a memory of a throat full of feathers.
The Weight of Memory is 9.5″ x 12″ original watercolor and ink painting on Arches hot-pressed paper.
This piece will ship unframed.
