    Honorable Mention in Fine Art / Collage

I originally created Olivia because of her tears. The scientific makeup of a single human emotional tear contains a natural substance similar to morphine (after Morpheus, the Greek god of dreams). The conflict of emotional release with pain depression is embodied by the nun, who lives under many vows and yet, Olivia sits on a chair bursting with flowers in a position of power. The quote she presides over rings many obsolete bells but, the most packaged of all commodities is still a woman. May these cards fall where they may.
