Originally, this piece was a passionate love story. “Finding your way back to each other” and igniting the light in the dark.
My friend had been seeing the piece evolve and without context I asked her to interpret what she saw.
She told me she saw passion but the difference in her story was that one hand was holding on tightly and the other one was letting go.
From her expression I felt as though she saw the piece a lot clearer than I did. From then on I could never unsee the new story it had taken on.
It was a funny yet strange feeling — the thought that my art work had already witnessed and maybe lived many lives without me noticing.
