Inside the Art: 1nce 2he Saw't
Published Artwork Description: Into the river of time she gazed, her soul dripping through the sacred mirror inside, every second coming into herself, never to be alone again.
Deeper Meanings: I do not usually describe my artwork to viewers because I believe in the power of our innate subjective reactions. Each of us is different, and the archetypal symbolic nature of my art tells a different story to each of us depending on where we are in life when we look into it. That being said, so many people ask me what it means that I thought I would give a look into the types of meaning I embed into my artwork for this one!
Before we begin with the art itself, I will describe the title: “1nce 2he Saw’t”. This is spoken as “Once she sought” and is a shortening of “What once she sought, now is found”. To enrich this with the symbolic meaning of the artwork, the 1 and 2 were used to reference that what once was a woman who felt alone in the world, now exists as two women via introspection, with one being the soul. The shortening of “Sought” to “Saw’t” refers to this seeing, as a contraction of “Saw it” holding now the double meaning of seeing and searching, and moreover to have found what she was looking for.
