Artist's description:

When I set out to do this piece, it was to be about me and my search for the one love I could spend my life with. I planned to do a woman standing, with a direct stare or looking slightly away. Her face would be beautifully painted and then erased, destroyed, or unrecognizable. As the piece progressed, it became about her search. I realized her message was more important. How many children are under pressure from both their parents and the popular culture to become something great? Never taking the time to first learn who they are, what they love, and what is already great about themselves. How many children with spirit are told they are attention deficit? And a reoccurring theme in my work; how many Americans are encouraged to alter themselves through drugs.
The halo of pills and glowsticks are unbroken and reflect the complex layers of drug abuse and altered perceptions in a continuous state. A traditional halo is crumbling and barely recognizable at this point, and a halo of diamonds crumbles behind it. These refer to hopes, dreams, a world of possibilities, and also traditional values, both lost and overstressed. The Breaking apart of the figure, refers both to love lost and a spirit which cannot be captured. The figure is turned towards something else. The eyes focused on something unknown.
