Denial (02 of 10)
Acrylic / 12" x 36"
“There had come a point... when it had occurred to me that I was supposed to give John’s clothes away... It was part of what people did after a death, part of the ritual, some kind of duty.
I stopped at the door to the room.
I could not give away the rest of his shoes.
I stood there for a moment, then realized why: he would need shoes if he was to return.”
- The Year of Magical Thinking, Joan Didion
