work entitled purple
Purple head (falling star) Purple is one of my favourite colours. The purple head is the star that was my mother, which fell from the sky and was only appreciated at the end of its journey. My mother was 48 when she died of frustration and heart ache.
I have a lot of regret about my relationship with her and this head is there to remind me of my love for her and to say sorry. The fur collar was her mother’s and later hers and I used to wear it a lot when I was younger.
