To begin to know another person, you must go beyond what you see on the surface.
We all carry many layers of experiences within. "Under My Skin" represents a selection of a few of mine. Some of these are easy to reveal; others are not.
This is an interactive artwork. If you are willing to take the time, I invite you to (literally) take my hands in yours and gently pull them down, as I open my heart to you. Each of the underlying layers will take time to peel away.
How well you get to know me depends on how much time you are willing to give.
Whatever that is, please be gentle with these layers and respectfully put them back the way you found them when you are done.
"Under My Skin" is an almost life-size interactive artwork. Because the viewer's
physical interaction is a key element to this
artwork, only a few layers have been
shown with no close-up views. The artwork
is available during public exhibitions
or by private appointment only.
A few comments in response to the artwork:
"You have touched us, so soulfully that
it hurts. And even the hurting is beautiful.
- S.T. Arizona
"Very potent. Quite a gift for a passing
visitor. My gratitude..." - G.F. New Mexico
"Rarely am I affected this way by others'
artwork. Thank you." - X.L. Arizona
"It's like looking into someone's soul.
You can't help but be affected by it.
Like peeling back an onion, layer by layer...
Very powerful piece. Very brave." - L.H. Canada
