Artist Statement:

“Being away from nature – the sky, trees, mountains, other sentient beings; my dogs, nomadic freedom, my spiritual practice…it’s all separation from the Divine. That kills me inside. I feel trapped in a cage. Like I’m suffocating. Although not a physical literal death, spiritual separation and mental anguish are self-annihilating in their own way.”

I die inside. Trapped. Away from you.
