pseudo [ˈsjuːdəʊ] adj
Informal not genuine; pretended
Pseudo making is about someone who appears on the outside to be OK , strong
and happy but on the inside they are otherwise…
I decided to stitch “words” into the cloth because you see a smile
to the left indicating that a person is smiling on the outside but, on
the inside they are sad, unhappy, etc. Words come from a mouth….
Some words hold great meaning and then other words are just “talk”
which have no action or substance behind them.
Talk can be “cheap”.
the steel beads stitched on the left of the heart represent “steel intent” or “strong
intention. The turquoise “x” represents the sadness, and the “fires” of life, and
disappointments one has experienced along the way. The “x” also represents the “scares” scars
(sometimes I am still half asleep when I post these things)
or memories left behind….
So, that was my thinking behind this piece…
