Description This is a personal image, representing my lack of a relationship with my mother.
MORE ABOUT THIS IMAGE: This image is rich with symbolism, layers of meaning emerging from the details. The woman in the center is my mother, she is trapped in time, frozen in her past. I could never touch my mother, nor reach her emotionally. She was a physically beautiful, classy and elegant woman. So i used a hybrid of model Clarissa, Adrianna and a mannequin; to give her that almost but not quite human aesthetic. My mother couldnt see me, she was blinded by her own issues, hence the blacked out sunglasses.
The women to the left and right of this image are me. If you look closely you will see i have broken, mechanical hands. This represents my inability to reach my mother and how that affected my ability to reach within myself and in turn, others. I often feel like an alien masquerading as a human in this earthly existence.
In this image i wanted to be covered in layers, upon layers of clothing with a costume type feel, because when i was around my mother i had to cover my emotions, hide my true self and adopt a persona.
About Me: I am a self-taught photographic artist. My art explores my internal landscapes, like... survivor issues, spirituality and sensuality. Much of my work is comprised of self-portraits. My intent with my creations is to be one of the connecting threads in the universal fabric we share. A detailed biography and resume can be viewed here: https://www.behance.net/jaedadewalt/resume
