Pain thrives in solitude, secrets and shadows…
ABOUT THIS IMAGE:
The image goes with a poem i wrote about what denial of abuse does to a family, keeping the sickness alive and well…
My innocence lost in these dirty sheets
My childhood buried in the stains of my mattress
Mother puts fresh sheets on the bed
Tossing the soiled sheets in the wash
Throwing a little DENIAL in with the fabric softener
Evidence erased, as the sheets tumble dry
Mother puts her blinders on
Though she sees his advances
She looks the other way
Allowing another layer of innocence
To be stripped...
CONNECT WITH ME:
I am a self-taught photographic artist, writer and poet. My primary goal as an independent artist is to translate experiences from my life into an art form, making the personal... universal. This approach allows me to create a connecting thread in the universal fabric we share, creating a gateway to emotions deep.
It is also important for me to use my art as an awareness heightening medium that addressees social issues, including; sexual abuse, domestic violence and mental illness/health.
