"Tina La Porta's mixed-media creations illustrate her very personal battle with schizophrenia,
the mental illness with which she was diagnosed in 2009.
Her work illustrates a continuous thread of inquiry into struggles that are hiding in plain view.
Her beautiful and, at times, disquieting work incorporates her body, her perceptions, and even her medications."
-- Christian Feneck, Emergent Curator
