Artist Leanne Kelly has fond memories of making “pysanky” wax-resist dyed eggs with her family. Each egg takes patience, time and a steady hand. After hours of working layers of wax and dye, inevitably someone would drop their raw egg. Tears and laughter would follow. These broken eggshells are a reminder of how delicate our brains can be.
This brain is dedicated to Kelly’s family, and their struggle through Alzheimer’s, brain injury and a brain tumour.
