“You had me caged like a bird, in midsummer”

This piece is about seeing your own cages and choosing hope and possibility whenever possible. It is ultimately about finding peace and not living your reality as a prisoner but rather, by choice. The title is from Lana Del Rey lyrics and they’re perfect for the time as they were when I originally painted it - feeling trapped while you look at a blooming world around you. The meaning of an art piece can transform over time. The material used in this include old photographs of a family on vacation, the members in cages, posed as well as pages of old books on soul mates, quotes and Emily Dickinson poems.
