FISH  EYES

  FOR PEARLS

 

 

AN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT AND SINGULARLY INDESCRIBABLE BOOK, ONE OF THE BRAVEST,  MOST UNIQUE AND COMPELLING SELF-EXAMINATIONS I HAVE EVER READ -

I WAS BLOWN AWAY!
                               -HENRY JAGLOM

A Magical Realism Memoir

Some moments I am drawn into another realm, where past memories of love and sorrow, lessons and yearnings, with golden dust-like strands, forge the place where this book lives and is being written.

Perhaps, it’s the same place where the phrase ‘fisheyes and pearls’ is coined, in an ancient book of internal alchemy. It prompts me to ask, in this world veiled in illusion, how do we discern the precious from the common or worthless? And, then, how might we transform the ordinary into something extraordinary?

Lead on a mission to liberate ghosts, the artist - using canvas, camera lens, and words - navigates the thorny and humbling landscape of relationships, society, and the unseen realms.

 

Fish Eyes for Pearls jumps lyrically between cities, lovers, and creative modalities, weaving tales of death, porn, PTSD, dyslexia, loss and love, amidst the art she creates, turning life into art, and art into a life.
