About the Artwork:
“Creating is a way of externalizing specific experiences or memories and pinning them in place. It’s like securing a butterfly in a bell jar. However, cognitive understanding and real comprehension of meaning take time; they arrive slowly and in many forms.
MENTALITY depicts the journey of connecting mind, memory, and heart and being on a constant carousel of self-awareness.” – Cassidy Rae Marietta
