I Could Have Loved You
There is something extremely raw and perfect in a love that could have been but never was. Too many times have I imagined a life with someone that, on the outside, seems flawless. It’s within the idea of that someone where I feel that I could be a perfect person as well; and I think that’s what makes the fantasy so golden.
For this piece, I wanted to exaggerate a dynamic in the hair – hence why it’s falling across her face and the cluster of stars. I thought that by showing only one eye, it would enforce the idea that love is somewhat blind – or better yet – we often only see what we want to see.
In any perfect world, you and I could have loved.
