The pencil drawings I created are my interpretation and representation of the many emotional components of the bereavement journey set to music by the Band Disturbed:
n this workshop participants will be asked asked to write a sentence, paragraph or page on what each drawing represents to them on their journey. You may even have your own concept of what each drawing should be called or you have not experienced a particular grief component that is listed. Respond to what reflects your journey.
The renditions are not listed in any particular order. Everyone's journey is different, their is no one way to grieve, only your way.
Some bereaved experience anger, some do not, some feel guilt, some do not, some fortunates find peace, but yet for so many it still seems so far from their reach.
This is art from the heart and what I have perceived working with the bereaved. I have limited the drawings to 20 portraits, there may be more but these I feel represent the major emotional componants in grief.
I encourage web viewers to write down what your gut reaction is to each drawing and verbalize what the drawings bring to mind for you.
