I’ve been neglecting my tumblr a bit over the past months. I keep meaning to revamp it but things get in the way. Story of my life, anyhow this is a piece I did for the Gravity Falls show at Gallery Nucleus. This was a fun piece to execute, and by fun I mean tricky. It’s mixed media and measures about 30 cm by 30cm. It’s still up so check it out if you’re in Los Angeles. This was my favorite scene in the show so I’m happy I got to capture it for this very special show.
I need trust in a relationship. You could wait four years to tell me you love me, you could make me wait 10 to meet your mom.
But I want to be the person you tell everything to. I want my word to be above anyone else’s. I want my ears to be your diary.
I know I won’t have all of that right away, but I need trust in my relationships.
Without it? It won’t work. End of story.
I wanted you to stay . And I think you wanted to stay too. But something wasn’t right. Maybe it was the timing. Or fate just pulling us apart. Maybe it was because I didn’t trust people and you thought I’d never trust you. But you left that Sunday morning. I don’t know which felt emptier the bed without you in it or my heart.
I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do. I learned to suspect that everyone is capable of living a lie. I came to believe that other people - even when you think you know them well - are ultimately unknowable.
