One of the rare times when I think I don't want any misinterpretation.
This picture was taken a LONG time ago. About two years ago actually. Those that are familiar with my work will notice that it was taken at the same time as Echoes and Damned. The picture was perfectly appropriate for that situation.
I worked on and titled this image not that long ago. Probably in the beginning of the year. The titled was prompted by a situation I was in, and it was perfectly appropriate then.
I am now posting this image because it seems to be perfectly appropriate now, given the current situation.
The genesis of this image is interesting. It seems to be constantly coming back to me. It's appropriate always because it is such a blanket statement of anger and hurt aimed at either yourself, others, or both at the same time.
"You are a..."
"I am a..."
"You think I am a..."
The meaning of this has evolved so much to me. It is the pinnacle of the most recurring human emotions: anger and pain. Sometimes I need a reminder of that. Perhaps one day I'll actually be able to create something new in the moment, but right now.. I think the reminder is important enough in itself. It is recurring, so you cannot wait until it passes. It will happen again. So just fucking deal with it now.
I am emotionally and artistically blind, deaf, and dumb. And this is only part of the process to battle all of that. And into battle again we go...
