"This hybrid work is fashioned from ink on hydrocal plaster, so it has both an object quality and a delicate surface due to the interaction of the materials. It comes from a body of work she showed in 2015 at Room East gallery in New York titled “Say it with a Black Rose” and was accompanied by the following poem:

slavish me

slavishly, she surrendered
to what felt like imminent doom,
imminent death

she waited once
for it to change
for it to pass

but it seems that that which is imminent
will always occur, and slavish me
how I envy her"
