INTRODUCTION FROM BOOK
I created this art series inspired by women, women in my life, to all women who are living, women who are no longer here, women who I have never met, and women who I've seen in my dreams.
This ART SERIES: The Essence of Women, is about celebrating all women. This art aims to focus on us, as women, and on what we do in those silent and in between moments of our lives. Those moments when we are arriving, departing, just waiting, just being, just starting, just finishing...
These moments are what I would analogize in the written word as the spaces in between words. I recognize that just because those spaces are silent, that does not mean they don't exist. The spaces are still there and matter to the absolute harmony of the writing itself. Just like us, as women matter, by merely just being there, wherever we are.
The art in this art series aims to exemplify the idea that we as women exist and matter regardless of what we do. We are important merely because of our presence. We matter and contribute JUST BY BEING!
I think I love women so much because of my mother. I lost my mother at an early age when my father kidnapped me. As a result, I lost touch with my mother for a number of years. Until finally, I reconnected with her for a brief moment when I was thirteen. Sadly, she disappeared in a flood shortly after and I never saw her again. This art series is my gift to her, and to all women and mothers in the world. With this art, I would like to express my belief that women matter simply because of who we are. I believe that love is the key to saving us all from grief.
My friends, lets cherish those people we love! Lets love and appreciate our mothers, and not only the mothers of our species, but all mothers, including the earth, even as a metaphor for all motherhood. For after all, if we are it is through the MOTHER, that we find the gift of life.
