Windows to an Inner World by ritakomi Windows to an Inner World by ritakomi
The eyes are often said to present a window to the soul.

In that sense, all these windows become somewhat of a passage towards our inner world. Everybody is looking through them to analyze personalities and locate psychological patterns.  There is always a way in. Or out.

As only an exception to the rule, there might be more than one windows leading to the depths of one’s mind. In few cases among them, those windows also lack deep perspective by presenting a two-dimensioned image, evidently forged by the outburst of emotions.

Even if it makes total sense to admit people statistically show different aspects of their souls under differentiated circumstances, it is but oxymoron when these variations obtain a significant role of their own, regardless of outer stimulations.

This is a fetching piece.  Catches the attention and is more interesting once you read through your thought process in the description. I like all the little details and variations in the windows.

I've been looking through the entries to the contest. As a multiple and an artist I'm interested to see how people depict us. I was not surprised by all of the horror movie stuff with gore/violence/demons etc.

THIS one is not only really, really well done, but original and creative. It really stands out from the rest of the entries. I love how you made all of the windows different, with their own character and story. Some of the imagery is a bit dark and sad, but still feels very human.

I don't know if you intended to portray multiplicity explicitly, but I identify with this. It's very humanizing and refreshing after staring at all of the horror. Thank you for this!

I am honored to receive your comment.

It’s rather difficult for someone who doesn’t have a personal experience, to understand and depict a certain mental state. I have watched the film, heard what the Director had to say and read as much as I could, before forming my own opinion. I have hoped that all these would give me just a clue, nothing more nothing less.

Thank you once more for your kind words which mean a lot to me.

If you ever want to learn more, I'd be happy to point you toward resources. I'd recommend you forget the film completely, though. It doesn't have much to do with actual multiplicity- it's a bit like learning about hockey by watching Friday the 13th.

One could only fall in love with this piece of yours, as well as the spot-on description of it.

As I kept looking at it, I noticed the cracked concrete wall that for me represents the person and the inner struggle of it, as it desperately tries to maintain a balance between all those different thoughts and emotions…and how only but a few still sane parts remain intact when one is roughly patched in what seems as a last attempt to seal his darkest thoughts away.

For once again you amaze me with your raw talent and heart-wrenching emotions each and every one of your pieces make me feel.  
Good luck on the contest! Heart Heart

Rita that is quite an interesting version of your artistic attitude and you still never cease to amaze us. The outcome is exquisitive but somehow requires the viewer's full attention. 
For example, I was trying to find out why you have selected just a few windows to appear in color and I think I may have found it. The choise of color itself is the answer to that, right? 
The symbolism is strong all over your artwork and I believe this whole concept is even better appreciated after having seen the Split movie. 
(23 Windows and one more hardly secured hole upon the front wall, hmmm... )
Good luck with the Contest!
