Update 4/14/2016: This entry actually won. I can't believe it! I'm truly honored and more than a little surprised! There were so many absolutely amazing entries that I never imagined that I would actually place, much less place 1st! I am beyond touched!

This is my 1st entry for the Eyes Closed To... CHALLENGE hosted by :iconcastle-of-manips:. The subject's eyes are closed to the reality of her pain.

Other Entry:
Mourning Creation's Destruction by SybilThorn

This is my 4th piece in my Female Strife Series. This series is an artistic exploration of the various struggles faced by women around the world using abstract and conceptual photomanipulation to manifest the emotional and physical pain of these afflictions of the soul & incorporating nude models to express the vulnerability and simple strength of womanhood in adversity. (Note: Although these struggles are not necessarily restricted to women, this project focuses exclusively on the female experience and perspective.)

This piece was inspired by the feeling of being emotionally abused, having one's spirit figuratively flayed alive by the words and actions of others.
