Pamela hid inside her veil, she felt protected and hidden behind the fine lace. Remembering her first communion, her confirmation and then her now failed marriage, she could hide behind the memories of better days.

These art works represent an aesthetic concept where the viewer is invited to participate in the artistic process.
In all these paintings, Michael Angelo has created a character, environment and symbolic subliminal imagery. In addition, the artwork is titled with a caption to the story it is representing. This is a moment frozen in time, a vignette, a Rorschach blot in which the artist gives no further explanation than what is visually presented.
The viewer is asked to look at this imagery and create its story. The viewer is not made to be a passive by product of the artistic process, but rather an active element that gives meaning to the work.
As with a Rorschach blot, no two viewers will create exactly the same story. The meaning of the artwork is therefore also different from viewer to viewer.
