"Vulnerability is a universal experience that touches on our most intimate moments. These three works expertly use visual cues to openly examine private moments that investigate the acceptance of identity and the subconscious. I selected these works because they depict scenes that diverge from the public personas we present, whether it is our honest psycho-emotional condition or it delves into a surrealist dreamscape. "
