Dorothy ~ Dark Pain, Childlike Womb…

November 2005 • Digital Giclee´ Print • 28”h x 112”w

“An incident occurred that involved my grandchildren and included my daughter making the statement ‘this is my house, if you don’t like what’s going on, you can leave.’…Dealing with homelessness and multiple health problems was a hard struggle. If not for the Grace of God and Dr. Olivia Washington, I would not be here.” ~ Dorothy


[It] began with a raw breaking apart… gradually transition through an exchange from the rawness …the ragged edges of Dorothy’s earlier life…through a mirror framed in butterflies … a symbol of her attempted metamorphosis, until the artwork changed to the soft and fuzzy roundness of the piles of Tweety Birds on the bed, which wrapped us protectively. ~ Mara Jevera Fulmer
