I really put my heart and soul into this. It was more or less symbolic of what was me as a child emerging from pain. The feeling of breaking free from being a prisoner. From my own insecurities and self consciousness. Working hard to get to where i stand now. Yet still vulnerable.
Running from an abusive home that i can’t bring myself to describe without feeling numb and bewildered to this day.
I made this…. doll thing, it’s parts glued together with barbed wire i made, on a painted canvas. I wove little led lights around and through it. It lights up with a flick of a switch in the back of the canvas.
Original artwork still in my possession.
