Within You, Without You: Self Portrait at 24
this a very personal piece for me
i finally had an artistic vision to express how i feel at the peak of being high
the horn turning into a snake comes from something i actually witnessed:
one week i'm at a party, outside and sitting by a bonfire (and quite rightly stoned, so i'm going into this primal goddess energetic, hence the buffalo woman)
i look across the fire and see a girl twisting a ram's horn over and over in her hands, as i watch her i notice the horn is changing shape, after a while i realize it wasn't a horn at all but a snake . . . i'd be lying if i said it didn't twist my mind.
