Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

"It Finds You" was the first artwork to greet you in my latest solo exhibition, "Optical Awakening". This exhibition was an experiment in creative polymathism. I created a crocheted fiber optic costume for my model to wear, photographed her, then created a series of drawings and mixed media artworks. I also composed a song and performed it and a number of other songs at my opening night.
Optical Awakening was my exploration of the white peacock and it's symbolism of rebirth, renewal, pride and innocence. This artwork portrays the "peacock" acknowledging the viewer.
The artwork looks best under low light. The whole exhibition was actually only illuminated with very soft lighting.
It Finds You comes mounted in a handmade box and has been fitted with D hooks and hanging wire.
I often find photographing my artwork a bit tricky. The crystals in the pastel gesso that I prime the substrate with, tend to sparkle. It does give my artwork an extra type of beauty, but is a pain to photograph!
