We are perpetually nurtured by pain. A spectrum of emotions reflects our natural responses to pain. As the pain grows, we grow with it — like a butterfly enveloped in a cocoon. Butterflies emerge, awakened, and you feel them in your stomach; that’s when you are alive. The collection Belly Butterflies reflects on these transformations, mindful of their cyclical nature: pain will inevitably return, but so will the butterflies.
