Visions From The Inside: Tesfaye

Visions From The Inside (2015)

Artist statement: “In the letter, the girl wrote a lot about a higher force, about God, telling her to pray, to maintain strength, and telling her that “God will make it up to you”. I found that really powerful and, unknowing of what their specific religious views are, I found it important to include something in the sketch representative of faith, hope, beauty, strength and a higher divine purpose throughout the ordeals of the struggles of life. The girls tears lead into a flower, and from the petals of the flower there are words from the letter, reaching into the direction of the girls hair, to a hand behind bars.” -Gabrielle Tesfaye
