‘Being’

Stanley Greening – drawings and collage

My work openly explores and dismantles the boundaries between life and death, embracing an age old contemplation.

I lost my son, Louis, in June 2020 in extremely tragic circumstances. My new emotionally charged work is an honest and powerful expression of my grief, exploring spirituality and transformation as a view to immortality. Images suggest a spiritual transformation with a radiating energy. The ethereal emerges as a sign of hope and optimism beyond our physicality. They are like visions, a spiritual awakening.

‘Scatter my immortal soul amongst your eternal memories and I shall see you when the light calls.’  Stanley Greening
