Artist Statement: This piece signifies the truth that we have no influence on when change comes, we only have the ability to control how we react. We can either crumble under the pressure of change or we can grow stronger from it. If we grow stronger through change, we can come out with more knowledge and resilience that will help us become better people who can help others continue to grow.
