Request was inspired by the prayer “Obsecro Te” that is in many Book of Hours. “Obsecro Te” is a prayer that directly addresses the Virgin and praises her sacrifices and the sorrow she felt as a mother. Carnations are used because they are a symbol of motherhood that evolved from their association with the Virgin. In Request carnations bloom then wither down to a single bud as the speaker asks to be sparred the suffering associated with maternity.

“Dispel” explores the idea of feminine and spiritual perfection, specifically within Catholicism which is the religious doctrine of my family. The imagery is evocative of the light cast from cathedral windows. Pulp painting of light and shadow is used to imply illumination or the revealing of truths and imperfections. At times the window forms seem to loom behind the figure, abstractly suggesting the all-seeing eye of God.
