Satin Darts and Spills

For men, power is the ability to build and direct the outside world.  For women, power is the ability to articulate and protect the emotional inner world.   This is not a petty job. 

The desire to connect to other people gives us joy, but also creates pain, insecurity, jealousy and anger.  I use the drapery of feminine evening gowns as a metaphorical map revealing the hidden internal turbulence social interaction causes.
