Found myself hypnotized and distraught into the colors, the shapes and the music. Suzan Pitt grants the viewer a look at the inner world of an artist, the dreams, the nightmares, the creativity, and the escapade of hidden desires and secret visions of a female artist amidst a creative orgasm surrounded by phallic-shaped vegetables.
