The Abstract & Surreal Artwork of Colleen D. Gjefle

Struggling to Emerge

2003 – Acrylic on Canvas – 8″ x 10″

There’s still a lot of darkness in this image, with lots of blood still present. But even with all the pain I was experiencing, I caught a glimpse of myself eventually emerging from the darkness that was overwhelming my Soul. Like the symbolic butterfly, I knew I would be a different, transformed woman once I was able to pull myself up from the psychological and emotional quagmire I found myself in. This was the first glimmer of hope and eventual freedom that I had felt in a few years.
