Art: Gagged and Bound  by Artist Jenga
When I created this piece I had in mind the idea that there are two parts to one whole. As individuals all of us deal with what we typically refer to as our dark and light sides. One side ever leaning towards evil or just plain bad inclinations while the other part of us, the light side, tends towards good deeds and pleasant thoughts. Each side is struggling to gain control by repressing the other. For the most part they balance each other out., leaving the majority of us to reside somewhere in the middle. This balance is precious and essential to our completion as a whole being. I depicted the two sides as angels, one fallen, and one still in grace. I wanted to depict the contrasting nature of the two beings without the use of wings, halos, and horns. I felt this piece depicted envy nicely and actually represents so much more than envy alone, I entered it with these few words She envies her.... As only the fallen can Her innocence, her purity, chaste as a newborn day The epitome of righteous perfection...all she can never be... She longs to consume it, the grace the beauty So she smothers her and revels in all that she is and all she can never be.
