A Statement from Kristalyn:

"This work reflects upon the joyful stillness of observing the encasing of another human being, to read one's soul as one reads the body, to make note of and to cherish each line etched into being by experience or emotion, to embrace the scars and scores found across our physical facilities as lovely.

Within creation lies the dangerous yet enthralling possibility to get a glimpse at the human mind in its raw and ravenous form as it digests our reality into personal experience and memorabilia as we cascade into the future laid before us. May we continue to use art to communicate, understand, commentate, reveal, explore, nurture, discuss, celebrate, and study the revolting yet remarkable tale of the human condition.

This work is to be part of a larger anaphora collection titled The Shape of You seeking publication!"
