About This Exhibit

“Miss Havisham (from Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations) has a broken heart, because she has been left at the altar. She spends the rest of her aggrieved life plotting retribution, and eventually repels everyone she loves. I’m a bibliophile who works autonomously. I find inspiration in books or poems, before I begin constructing. Once a piece is completed, I read into it to discover the narrative. To me, this work is a cautionary yarn about holding onto resentment and pain. It is the ghost of a once lovely and idealistic woman–now a dusty shell of tangled resentment.”
