Around 1995 I was working in the art department of a record store. Up until then I was only doing pencil drawings of my work when a co-worker suggested I paint one. She started as a rough design in a sketch book before I took a dive onto a 16in by 20in flimsy canvas board. I made you up with no reference, and you came out perfect. You resemble my sister "M" who I viewed as this symbol of the strength that I wish I had. Using only black and white paint, I wanted you to be like an editorial image from a fashion magazine. I do not remember why I named you Sauvaray or where it had come from, but I found that in the name gave you power and made you all the more real for me.
Where the original is today? I have no idea.
