Mistress of Tears
Nicole A. Romine
"In our desperate need, we consume the world around us,
till at last we consume ourselves …
drowning in our own emptiness.
The Mistress of Tears embodies blind greed; seductive yet shabby. She drinks the tears of others because she cannot shed her own. She longs to feel something other than the vast emptiness that lives within her. She is drawn to light desperately needing respite from her dark world. The moonlight sates her momentarily but the hunger returns as it must.
Mistress of Tears reflects the human relationship to the world around them. The tear bottles represent the contents of human addiction and the endless cycle of needing more. "
