Pieces No. 3, paper collage, 2022

where do you go when you discover yourself?

where the night comes in
where silence engulfs our bodies like a hammer

i close my eyes and i am unborn
i lie down with the bell of the oyster

i am the voice of a poet 
who wanted to but couldn’t

i raise my hips in an explosion of moths

the unspeakable paradox
of this white dress

I am in the process of putting all of the “Pieces” collages in my Etsy shop. In the meantime, if you’re interested in purchasing prints for any of the artwork above, please contact me or drop a note in the Comments.

Also, I have given “Pieces” their own page, as I plan on adding at least a few more to this mini-collection. You can find it under Collage in the main menu above.

  1. “the unspeakable paradox of this white dress”..I love this closing line. This life, so often, an unspeakable paradox that keeps us searching, pursuing, loving, discovering…endlessly.
    And I love what you’re doing with the Pieces Collection. As you know, I love the female nude and I love your creativity..the soft, grainy focus of the photos contrasted with the sharp, bold additions you have made to the female form. My favorites are No. 1, 5, and 7 🙂 Well done!

    • So true. And very often looking outside when we should be looking within. I like the female nude as a kind of metaphor, or vehicle, for exploring these ideas because I think that search is–for women, anyway–intimately tied to our sexuality, the ways in which we experience ourselves as women. I am happy you like these. I was in the mood to try something different. Have a great weekend, my friend! 🙂
