A collaboration. Words by palliative care nurse Jocelyn Brown, who holds space for death every day and has learned that love is the only way through. Art by Ramune Luminaire. The artwork starts with extracts from Brown’s journals, notes made on her phone and other scribblings, detailing her experiences over sixteen years of working with people who face the reality of death every day, living with terminal cancer. Their stories express despair, hopelessness, anger, worry for the people left behind and surprising currents of joy and peace. The drawings, prints, painting and photo transfers are Luminaire’s response to Brown’s writing, sometimes illustrative, sometimes purely intuitive.
