Artist Statement About Don’t Go Unspoken By Jega Delisca:
I started painting to deal with the loss of my closest friend Elisha, and I don’t think I could’ve imagined that this grief would offer so much to explore. Elisha in many ways was the co-author to my life up until now, and in the chasm her death left behind, this whole new identity is forming. I’ve been obsessed with looking back and reflecting on the person I was before her and the person I’m becoming after her.
Don’t Go Unspoken is a collection of work reflecting on grief, friendship and childhood. These paintings illuminate the intimate moments between my three close friends, the joys of coming to age with and how and moving forward with grief.
