Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. It’s just beautiful. I see so many things in it - fish, butterflies, trees. I have it hanging in the loungeroom of my home because it brings me great happiness. I love it.
— Patricia Amato

 

Resilience is a word that springs to mind when I think about Patricia. Her wild humour, her laugh, her tenacious spirit.

During her Session, some of her children and grandchildren were present in the room. I extended some of the imagination exercises to include their responses. Her grandchildren’s eyes lit upon with excitement with being able to share their responses to questions like “If you were a sound, what sound would you be?” or “If you were a body of water, what would you be?”

The resulting Ink-Pressing is complex and filled with colour, a direct visual representation of the Session experience.

The sound recording features the voices of the family and the special ways they connected via love and creativity on that day.
