The reason I decided to take on the challenge of the Thin-Skinned series was because I wanted to show that in the current state of affairs, the real world is blocked from sight by a thin film or layer covering it. Every day, layers cover and block things, or sometimes we intentionally apply makeup to actively hide things. Once we accept that things are covered and hidden, it becomes important to summon our courage to look directly at the real world and guess at its true nature.
Of course, if asked what the motivation for creating this series was, I would have to answer that it’s because during these times various events are recurring. One example would be the concern that I am being swept along by daily life; this piece includes a warning to myself against going with the flow.
