Those Damaged Goods

WHAT LIES BENEATH THE SURFACE? A world that is more beautiful, more poetic, more real.

"I damage secondhand old plates. I remove the decorative patterns that camouflage our everyday lies and in its place I leave words that prick our conscience and create portraits of hidden domestics left open for others to interpret."

Oh thanks :-) When I was little I thought my name was odd for being an actual word or title.
