The foundation level of this piece has the scattered pages from the book of Exodus. Then wrapped with paper and painted on. The hamsa portrait visually explores what it means to “emotionally flooded” in other-words unlike the physical departure in Exodus this piece reflects on the internal battles and conversations in our own heads. Unlike it’s brother “Fleeing” this peace focuses more on the feelings of where one can be emotional flooded. The flowers and soothing color palette suggest the harmony in “letting go” rather then suffering in silence.
