Chelsie Luck: The girl who knew all the feelings but never the words - Art Collector

Chelsie LUCK / Bhutan book 2015 / ink on paper / 18 x 25 cm / Reproduced by kind permission

"In August 2015 my father handed me an empty book of handmade paper from his recent trip to Bhutan. He told me to do a drawing on every single page.

It was a gift and instructions from a kind and loving father who knew his daughter was experiencing a tumultuous time. I was experiencing a difficult chapter in my life and took to drawing in the book as a form of therapy. A drawing took place in every page and soon a narrative was revealed; the documentation of an ended relationship and new beginnings."
