Poet Muriel Rukeyser wrote of the German artist Kathe Kollwitz ….”What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open”.
"My paintings are my truth. They are self-portraits of my insides; what I think about, the things that concern me, or how I perceive something at a given moment. Images culled from poetry, headlines or startling statistics reflecting the reality of marginalized existence. The truth is both terrifying and beautiful. I want to create from this axiom." -Rebekah Tarin

A statement from the Artist:
I, chimera-a sum of parts: both/and
fighter/friend-in all configurations and amounts
from the intersection of these places:
flow the multiplicity of agency
the shifting veils of self;
flayed and transformed
integrating and liberating
the feminine dimensions of power and divinity.
