Gilda ~ Flee or Fight

January 2006 • Digital Giclee´ Print • 28”h x 112”w

 

 

“...we literally went “from house to house” staying with friends....My darkest moments were when I became homeless again. My brightest hope is that with all of my supports in place, maybe, just maybe, I will have a chance to do it over and get it right this time.” ~ Gilda

 

 

Gilda spent her days “phantom shopping” ... while her daughter was at school. She did not want to go back to the shelter... Then, after her cart was full, she would repeat the process in reverse, slowly putting the items back on the shelf... This shopping cart is more dreamlike. What would I buy if money were no object? at the Farmer Jack?
