Liz Insogna: Clarity, after our last conversation in your studio, I thought about your work quite a lot, and the images began to shift from painted portraits into art works that resonate as archetypes of healing and reconciliation. I'm wondering if you might be able to give some insight here on the original impetus for your most recent works, The Breast Portrait Project, and the context through which it all began.
Clarity Haynes: Thanks, Liz. Our recent conversation was helpful to me. I realized that it's been difficult in the past to be completely candid about this question, because it feels risky to talk about things like spirituality and healing in contemporary art discourse.
