The Kiss of the Butterfly, 2022 

Collage on Digital Photograph, Animated

The butterfly has emerged from the chrysalis, 

and the kiss of the butterfly awakens the reborn Venus floating among the waves.

Text and the figure are inextricably entwined. 

There are so many words that can harm one’s experience of being in their own body, 

sometimes lasting for a lifetime. 

Loving words are a balm to the soul, like the kiss of a butterfly.
