Rachel Davis utilizes the vessel to visually articulate the complex emotions encountered in various types of relationships. Her work is based on personal experiences and observations. “Maturation” uses the unfolding of segments to express personal growth and development of an individual. Full maturity and bloom can only be reached through a positive relationship with one’s self. Without a true understanding of one’s core fundamental beliefs, growth tends to be more horizontal. Self-realization is required for upward growth.
