ABOUT NATASHA

I’m Fine.

“Even with half a heart she would still love so deeply the world thought she was perfectly whole”

(S.L.Gray)

I’m Fine is about self-created public identity. A facade of strength, ability, and wholeness.

Neat. Together. Functioning. Strong.

Metaphorical costumes are constructed to become the someone we wish we were, want to be seen as, or hide behind for self-protection. Supressed feelings of inadequacy, chaotic and raw emotions, emptiness and negativity seep out through cracks while we try to hold it all together.
