Heidi Sandvoll: Ten years ago, I decided to put pen to paper and draw for as long as I could physically draw in order to get over a heart break. The body of work was called “Obsession to Meditation” a hopeful title. I pretended that it worked.
But soon enough, I ended up with another heart ache. That pattern has continued and I feel lost in it. I haven’t been able to draw or paint or create anything to get me out of lost. The words “Finding Lost” slipped into my mind one day. Since I was in Lost, I felt that I should see what Lost was about for me. I would paint without planning, more like mindless doodling.
I found boats in the doodles and trees and waves. I am sure they have some meaning that I have yet to ascertain. I draw animals simply because I like them and they bring comfort. I think if I make Lost into my home, being there won’t be so hurtful.
