Description This is a depiction of the possibilites that lay dormant within you.Amaterasu retreated to her cavern when the winds were rude to her gardens and while she was gone the world suffered because her light withdrew with her. Sadness and depression was quickly transformed when her peers lured out of her cavern with music and sensuous dance. Sometimes when the world mistreats you, there is someplace within you and preferably outside of you too, where you may retreat to until the people surrounding you shift into a space that may best accommodate your light.Never believe for an instant that your imagination has nothing more to offer than mere flighty frivolity or fantasy. With it we create, maintain and true beauty; visually and in every sense of the word.Nor allow petty sophistry or unenlightened aesthetic propaganda fool you into believing there is anything about you less beautiful than any other being. So true your beauty and aesthetic sense with imagination far beyond what TV or any media can mention. Afterall we made this place and everything in it based on what the Creator teaches us so let's represent ourselves and Creator with our best.Bless.
Tufani Mayfield, Rochester Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement I work best alone, without distractions and without interruptions.
I will not perform or seek prominence. My lifestyle is quiet and private. I do not seek the input or opinions of critics; hecklers are not welcome.
I am protective of my family and my rights. I maintain healthy boundaries and will moderate the balance between my individual needs and my duties to society. No regime will thwart my right to be who and how I am whether that regime be communist, feminist, white supremacist, black supremacist, urban, rural, laborer, white collar, familist, political or religious.
My adult life has been a painful process of recovering from abuse and attacks from the corruptions which have arisen in American society. I have endured many insults and disrespectful opinions from people and organizations that they either consciously or unconsciously represent.
My adversaries have alienated, slandered and committed libel against me for any number of "reasons" without accountability and with impunity. Meanwhile my integrity was attacked, career was terminated, my self esteem diminished, privacy squelched and my freedom stymied.
43 years old now, I seek justice and find it by doing as much as I can myself and leaving the rest up to the trustworthy and to God.
With the money I insist on earning I intend to become debt free, and make up for lost time.
Our right to adequate shelter and adequate standard of living must be enforced and I have yet to find a resource which will represent us. So this is my solution.
