I had so much fun working on this particular piece, because I had no idea where it was going. In a world full of regimented tasks and things beyond your control, sometimes it's nice to just let go of outcomes and let things play out on their own. The operative word being play!
Giselle was definitely my inspiration for this assemblage. Poor thing. I just didn't like the look of her all pretty and pristine. Maybe I was a little jealous? But she looked so sad, like she was hiding behind her blushing dress and those curly locks. I knew she really felt twisted inside... and wanted to show that part of her. Now she's where she belongs.
