24" x 18"  - Acrylic on Canvas


The shapes in this piece are gathered as a headdress or diadem, signifying self-sovereignty. The white circle at the top of the picture represents the moon and its detachment from the theatrics of earth, floating in the vastness of space—a reminder to widen your perspective and keep your inner eye on the fact that we come from the same force that made the cosmos. In the 1990 documentary, “The Other Side of the Moon,” many of the Apollo astronauts interviewed shared a belief in a “divine order” after experiencing the sight of earth from outer space. Other ideas around this piece are self-determination, personal freedom, non-attachment, and liberation.
