I try to give that pain a shape and form a visual recognition; to communicate the personal and cultural dynamics which condition how we view ourselves and others as well as how our individual experiences condition such perception. These particular works were inspired by Charles Wright’s poem “Apologia pro Vita Sua, III” from Black Zodiac which begins “June is a migraine above the eyes…” hence the title of the series.
