A portrait inspired by a youth photograph of my mother. To illustrate the suffocating milieu in which she grew up, I have used symbolism in several ways: a "frame" around the figure (half in gold and half in black and white); "arrows" pointing at her; Japanese style hair needles; "wires" penetrating her face, skull, hair, breast, and hands; a golden mask covering her right eye. Finally, her left hand reaching out, trying to escape the frame set around her, almost bleeding.
