With Bated Breath

Once when I was swimming in the ocean, every little part of my skin being touched by water, lots of small fish came swimming around me and started nibbling on my skin. An experience I translated into this wall piece. The title is referring to a few things; holding one’s breath when under water, the 2 years working on an epic piece like this gives a sense of holding one’s breath until it is finished and there will be space to start on something new & the feeling something good is going to come and you’re holding your breath for a moment out of excitement.
