This is a print I completed after a painful separation from my lover of seven years, which took place in late December 2006. The piece depicts the two sides of my person, one side being the self-centered, neurotic, workaholic artist. During an artist residency in Provincetown, Massachusetts, I was able to develop alot of preliminary concepts about my own experiences. I completed about seven concepts and this was one of them. I revisited this piece in December 2006, as I was undergoing the physical and emotional separation. In those conditions, one finds it hard to imagine another possibility for love, the hours pass very slowly.... at that time my motivation to create work was extremely low, however, I managed to create this piece, which became an outlet for me.
