A direct gaze distorts the truth as if it’s made of sand. To see differently expectations, photographs, mirrors, assumptions, categories, must be set aside. She emerged blind-sideways from the experiment and unwrapped a thousand other possible “me”s. Unpolished, but a strong catalyst and inspiration guiding me towards new artistic adventure and identity.

The first painting I proudly framed and hung on my living room wall, after I put the paint from photographs away.
