The power of the school bully, homosexuality, teen pranksterism, sadism, masochism, humiliation, watersports—it's certainly all here in one terrific image.

You're welcome. I would love a print if it's not too expense!

This is based on a book cover, isn't it? I feel certain I've seen a children's book with a more mundane version of this same scene on the cover.

No. I would never base a piece of mine on a book cover, or on anyone else's work, for that matter.

After more than 6 years of following your work this is still one of my favourite pieces. I love the symbolism and power dynamics! I just wish it was in better quality for a print :)

Of course I love the slightly messy hair of the younger girl.

I study your work and will one day fully identify your symbolism and love that much more.

It seem like a poetic retelling of a basic truth. Girls (and boys as well) will do anything to fit in, but they don't realise that they are better han anything anyone could try to make them into. She will do something that ridiculous just to fit in and lower herself in such a way. She puts too much value in her classmate's opinions and easily succumbs to peer pressure. The difference between the rich girl and the one in the red dress is lying on the floor between them. Eventually she will realise that one she looks up to is nothing but a highschool whore and surpass her in every respect. I probably judge her but, it is looking to turn out that way.

Is that supposed to be fecal matter in the urinal? Is it reflecting on the age old assumption that when a girl see's a urinal she thinks it's either a drinking fountain or a wall toilet? Ahahaha!

The three shiny metal discs are like blobs of mercury, so of course I have to see their combined shape as a transformed caduceus.

Please excuse me, I need to visit the athanor. :D
