Colors other than red began to bleed into the design of these three pieces, "Both Ends She Burns," "In the Name of the Father, in the Name of the Daughter," and "...And Loves Women." This is part of the series "Self Portraits in Reds," exploring the relationship of personal existence to the color red and explores the various meanings attached to the color red in our culture. Red is often interpreted as a color of anger and violence. This is a re-interpretation of meaning: Red as passion, as spirituality, as love, as personal power, as blood, and as a life-giving-force.
