twas a moment
Photography & Verse
9 inches x 4.33 inches


Twas a moment when I felt I couldn't let go. I was lingering in the lines of a space that ceased to exist, thinking that the next move would lead me even further astray. Subconsciously, I imagined love in a big room of familiar who eventually took a cab leaving me with photos of their smiles engraved in my dreams. The food that nourished me continued to be spilled onto the floor and I cried as I tried to replace it with the scars remaining. Twas a moment that gave me life and washed away the energy that had surrounded me. I was lifted into a trance of joy that rebirth of my conscious mind informing my subconscious to be steady and serene. I felt calm, enamored with existence as if honey was my skin. The sun beamed upon me and I nurtured the land. I was free. I could breathe. I basked in the meadow as the ocean sounds travelled thru me. I fell into deep meditation and lifted into the sky. A smile consumed my whole existence. Twas a moment in forever that moved me forward. 

twas a moment is based on one of my dreams, and was chosen as my work for the Rambling Exhibition. The photograph is an abstract work created while visiting Ohio in late 2020. The printed photo was made specifically to fit into a 9x12 inch – 10x14 inch mailing envelope. For the audio, I created a QR code and adhered it to the back of the photograph, for viewers to scan and listen.

Amanda Benefiel, Los Angeles artist, Curator, and owner of The Floating Gallery, proposed a method to creating an exhibition during the COVID-19 pandemic, since we could not exhibit work in-person, indoors. Amanda called me to discuss the idea, and we co-organized what became the Rambling Exhibition. From one artist to the next, the exhibition travels. When it reaches the eighth artist, it is returned to the initiating artist, then the cycle restarts. The first cycle took 3 years to get back to Amanda.
