Dangott’s deeply layered images are beautiful and haunting, evoking mystery, reflection and scrutiny in the details. The work is emotionally layered, attempting to provide a look into the artists past of sexual trauma and abuse.
From her statement, "this series is my attempt to put into a visual context some intimate personal history marred by childhood physical and sexual abuse—years of it—that affected my entire nuclear family. And—the residual and recurrent psychological trauma of feeling isolated, vulnerable and damaged that lingers throughout a victim’s lifetime. The life-long emotional scars are not always easily observed by others, but are ever present. At the same time, it references the power of our human connection with nature, which can help to protect us and heal us, if we allow it to do so".
