“Diamonds & Rust”, 2016

“Diamonds & Rust”, Karoliina Lehtonen, 2016, Mixed Media

When the ghosts of our past relationships raise their heads, we can decide if we remember the diamonds or the rust – the good or bad. After all, the poetry we tell ourselves will cover all that had happened. It looks like there are more diamonds than I remembered. Or maybe I’m just too nostalgic.
