This piece is for me a sort of breakthrough. For the first time I think I was able to reach something closer to my own self, like a window to the pure honesty of my world. I've been for years painting and drawing visions that were in my imagination but that did not exactly tell my stories in their crude form. It has been a laborious process to get rid of preconceived ideas about what my art should be and just embrace my own symbols. Maybe with "Rites" I am finally being able to map this territory that is far from strange but ironically wrapped in silence.
