Celeste Hutchings,
In all she soars, 2022,
Acrylic and collage on canvas,
76.2 x 101.6 cm (30 x 40 in).

In all she soars

From her diamond eyes the love streams down the riverbank of her touch. The way the air feels as her form passes by and moments linger with satisfaction.

Had it taken longer for her to arrive, I would have stayed waiting with a quiet anticipation, uplifting me from all illusions of despair. 

I love being her, I love seeing her, I love speaking her.

I love the being I have welcomed myself to become.
