LA vs NY

Laurie Freitag

This work,”Ruins” deals with my experience of taking back control. Time has started to erupt on my face and body via gravity and lines of wear leaving me feeling like a victim, powerless. By exaggerating my image with pixels and saturation, I claim ownership of how I want to be seen. I take my power back from Time. In addition, I imagine on a cellular level, that the pain and disappointments of life would appear on my face as depicted. I believe, each hurt, from our childhood on up, burrows into our perfect selves, and takes it’s toll over a lifetime. When I look in the mirror as I’m aging, the cellular pains seem to be coming to the surface more now than ever.
