“There is a resiliency to your words. A forward momentum. An attempt to expose evil within and outside while maintaining an awareness of one's ability to transcend our circumstances, habits, pain and anger. There is at once a fiery powerlessness and a sweet surrender to your work. I appreciate your ability to hold both of these things to be true. That is perhaps the most human aspect of us all - our multitudes.” - ANNA ELIZABETH SCHWARTZ, classmate at THE SCHOOL OF THE ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO 'POETICS OF THE ORDINARY' (Spring 2020), taught by MATTHEW GOULISH.
