The Cry

The Cry, 2011, mixed media, 60″ x 40″

It’s a build-up of explosive energy that gets released when you contract your muscles during the physical act of crying. Emotional tears, mucus and sound stream from every window in your face. Cold air burns at the top of the mountain as you buckle and realize you have been torn open. There is nothing left to do but to record exactly what happened, exactly as you remember it in order to secure this explosion on the outside of your body. This is true catharsis.
