Gaze

“It has shown me that everything is illuminated in the light of the past. It is always along the side of us…on the inside, looking out.” 
??? Jonathan Safran Foer

This piece is deeply personal to me, and signals a change in my artistic direction. I’ve been thinking that lately, that empathy is a powerful thing, but it often makes it hard to tease yourself apart from the blame of others. The face you bring to the world is simply who you want others to be. The gaze, expectations, and memories you bring onto others, applies to back to you, and to all. 

My thoughts on this piece, and on things in general: https://cindyshih.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/3-26-12-the-lonely-work-17/
