"Abyss: 221-00"(2017) by Nina Q. Allen

Digital Collage, 12' X 12'


ABYSS221 is a crystal series inspired my recent battle with endometriosis. ABYSS equals a deep void, while 221 signifies a bright future. Connections between gender, health, and spirituality are displayed. Art is a therapeutic space to dive into higher consciousness. The journey hasn't been easy, but I am stronger because of it. I'm on a path of holistic healing, education, and inner peace. To young girls and women who are on the verge of giving up, life is a gem. Time will present truth and positivity. Dedicated to my amazing team of female-driven doctors.

"Even in the midst of a “bad day” as I called these moments, I was ready to push through. A part of me, the part that is socialized by our “suck it up” and “don’t be a baby” society, said I was just being weak...stop being so dramatic. No one believes you, anyway…"
