2019 Finalists

Ruth MADDISON

Artist statement: Last year my 47-year relationship ended.

It had been on shaky ground for some time.

It finally broke with an eruption.

Ages ago I read somewhere:

‘… conspiracy of things not said so love can survive.’

But that doesn’t work. 

I had sleep-depriving conversations in my head for quite a while, but one day … one night, they were gone. No need.

Off I go.
