Artist's Statement
On the edge….Honey Mahogany
To quote Luis Bunuel “But that the white eye-lid of the screen reflect its proper light, the Universe would go up in flames.” That white eye-lid has held me in its grasp for 35 years as I tried to capture it, it’s shadows, silhouettes and celebrities in my on-going photographic project, Portrait of a Film Festival : San Francisco International. Honey Mahogany is one of two portraits from this project on display in the de Young Open. Carl Jung states “To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light”. Black, femme, queer, non-binary, activist, politician, drag performer, and singer Honey Mahogany exudes her own light and embodies the de Young Open’s overall theme found in a traditional Ohlone song: “I am dancing. On the edge of the world I am dancing.”
