The piece is called RAGE: Rape, Antagonism, Gnawing, Eviscerate. 2005 June. Mixed media: acrylic paint, paper, ink, pen, marker. Razor blades, pins, nail, leather, velcro, and found objects.
I think it accurately mirrors the way I felt at the time I created the piece; beyond pissed or angry, I was enraged. I believe it was after a huge fight I had with one of my ex's, but it drew out more than just the rage of the moment, kept me awake throughout the night, and for a few nights, therefore 'insomnia'. The first piece that came to mind when I heard of the exhibit.
Have you ever experienced emotions so strong that it kept you awake throughout the night and/or completely preoccupied (even during the day) until it was resolved?
