She sat alone. Her Apartment, now empty except for one small lamp with a frayed cord and broken bulb. All taken back by the man who promised to never leave. He lied.

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.
