What happens to us when it seems as though the world we know and the one we wanted has left us behind?
We cope or suffer or both and either
live or die from it.
And there is no testament to strength to either
simply example as to how and why
the rest we can choose to keep private or share.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yIDt97zQgY
By right Zephreil is the Angel of the self struggle and self delusion. It is the essence behind the private detective in us that puts pieces together about things we believe in whether or not they are in fact true - our greatness vs weakness, or our generosity vs selfishness - the reality of who we actually are vs what the world sees us as or want from us.
The fiery sharp points of color used in baking soda and vinegar with wild grape against a deepening blue set the eye into a flash point, a skeeter-ed glimpse of a bucking horse in honey and henna as is in the foreground but there are literally over 43 separate images in the piece.
