stories of eves II

Every woman is a world of stories. This installation, titled Stories of Eves, is a collection of eighty-two paintings of ‘fictional’ women displayed in a pitch-black room. Visitors were invited to use their cell phone flashlights to control the lighting, once they experience the initial sense of anxiety that comes from total darkness. Over social media I asked women to send me their stories, to use as a backdrop for the paintings, to create a correlation between the women in my portraits and the voices overhead.
