The Storm Within
Amanda ”A.B” Martinez
For the past two years, I've been boarded up while fighting for my life from cancer. Because of that, I didn't get to see most of my friends for over two years, which is where my idea for this commission was born. I traveled across the U.S. to see friends I hadn't seen in a long time due to the pandemic and my health and collaged them into stories to tell the common viewer what emotion was behind it.
