Behind Closed Eyes

Behind Closed Eyes

2020  •  19.5×26.5 in. Graphite & Charcoal

I woke up one morning in a sleep paralysis dream where my bed turned into the ocean. While floating amidst the open waters, my body was inept but my mind was wide awake. The waves washing over me left me gasping for air while a spirit prayed beside me in a language I couldn’t understand. It was a chilling yet serene experience.

I'll be your mirror, reflect what you are

Reflect What You Are

2010  •  24×18 in. Charcoal

This piece is inspired by the Velvet Underground song I’ll Be Your Mirror. It depicts a female figure channeling a spirit that’s guiding her through the mirror so she can see the true reflection of who she is inside. This out-of-body experience allows her to release the thoughts, represented by locusts, which plague her mind while her protector waits on the other side where the door to her mind is open. Additional references can be found in the lyrics of the song (read lyrics).
