shoot the moon


This is a new piece for the show called "don't panic" . It is about the worries related to being a female, and specifically toxic shock syndrome, a terribly scary name for an equally scary disease. It is a contemplation of the moon, of death and of the fear about the horrible things that can happen to our bodies. The personal element is that my mother (among her many unreasonable fears) opposed the use of tampons, which can cause tss, and instilled a fear of them in me.

just so you know this makes me feel so sad and in termoil, I guess I can't really decide how I feel about the painting but it's beautiful and a great addition to the other piece for the show
