“Our dreams are a second life.” ~Gerard de Nerval

Last weekend for INVINCIBLE

By Cat Boccaccio.

It’s possible to be strong and vulnerable at the same time; to suffer but to set that suffering aside; to to use unthinkable hardships as tools to help you fight for yourself and others.

That’s what my exhibit at DNA Arts & Music Fusion, called Invincible, is all about. It was a difficult collection, but women (and men) who viewed the exhibit found it to be positive and inspiring.

DNA Mar 23

From the exhibit notes:

The women you encounter in the street, the workplace and at home appear mostly healthy and undamaged. The facts say otherwise. For example, a UNICEF study concluded that “globally, women aged between fifteen and forty-four are more likely to be injured or die as a result of male violence than through cancer, traffic accidents, malaria and war combined”.

This exhibit is about women and the secrets they keep, the scars from emotional and physical abuse that are hidden from our eyes; and the way women continue, despite a truly violent onslaught, to be productive, creative, nurturing, strong, and important.

I hope you will drop by and have a look before the exhibit closes on Sunday, March 31. Many thanks to everyone in Second Life who has been so supportive of this project.

Visit Invincible at DNA Gallery.
