My abstract works typically have both layers of construction and layers of meaning, often not telling me what they are "about" until well into the creative process. This piece turned out to be about growing up "different", something to which many creative people can relate. It also tells of the interaction between our child selves and our adult selves, and how the two are inextricably linked. We have to learn to work with that, rather than deny or suppress it.
