Artist’s Statement

Her hair was gold, touching feelings, but she had to lose her soul to be seen, the way he is. She doesn’t think; her lips are a sweet surprise, her cold hands decidedly decaying. She only had to do it, old news. The results are always perfect, but the whole expanse cannot be seen. She will lay him on a throne, invented at his birth and sprinkled with reluctance. He formulated her infinity and whittled her title down to, “a woman.”
