Mater Dolorosa by Simon Marimion
My friend and fellow Nes Artist, Marlaina Read, is working on an interesting project called "Art and Crying." She is collecting stories from artists that describe emotional reactions when experiencing different forms of art. I participated in the project while I was at Nes and my statement is now on her website along with many others. I find them fascinating to read. My contribution includes two stories, one surrounding my first time with the jewelry collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum, while the other happened in Bruges, Belgium at the Groeninge Museum.
