"Each story of the painting can stand on its own, but when you put them all together you can tell that they belong to that one theme I initially created. It's like putting all the pieces of the puzzle together to complete this one, whole image." - Jon Jaylo.

"Hiraeth is a Gaelic word, meaning to miss/long for a place that you can never visit again. It perfectly captures the emotions felt by Buer for her beloved Packard Plant in Detroit, Michigan. Once a sprawling, lawless urban metropolis that was the epicenter of a decaying Detroit, as the city pulls itself up by the boot straps, the Packard Plant has slowly begun to be torn down and is no longer the playground for urban explorers it once was."

“Wednesday is not only death but also a rebirth. She is the fallen angel banished from heaven and the goddess of victory in Samothrace. I thought she would be the most difficult one to design. How could I find inspiration from a style that no longer belonged to me? At first, only her name “Wednesday” was confirmed, the specific image was a blank in my mind. I tried to start with the “white wings” of Lotus “Rebirth” and did some complicated feather designs. But when I tried to make some shapes out of paper, it all came together spontaneously. She became the quickest one to finish in the series.”
@ddanne1984 takes us on her journey in the book ‘A song to myself’. The doll artist won this year’s Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize in the category @yashayoungprojects Sculpture award. DD-Anne shares about this experience: “When I received the internal notification email of the winner at the end of August, I stared at it and read several times to make sure I had understood it correctly. Lol! That afternoon, I was so thrilled that I was dancing for joy at home alone.
To me, it means a lot to compete beyond the confine of dolls, with artists using other forms of expression and win. It gave me more confidence that "I can do it".”
