My work, The exquisite muse of sorrow, explores the beauty and danger of cancer. The aim of the work is to catch the audience’s attention, to make people wonder and take a second look at the contrasts created by painting with glitter. Cancer is a subject close to me, through the loss of family members and my own personal battle with this disease. I wanted to demonstrate the beauty within such an ugly disease through my interpretation and the twists that occur between subject matter and materials.
