Looking In (2020)
oil paint on canvas
46 x 56 in.

This painting is a self portrait of how enforced isolation and the lack of physical touch has lead me to become more aware of the power hierarchy within the different perceptions of my self. While this has helped me face the roots of my happiness and fear, it has also separated me from my support groups and pulled at the structure of my self worth. Times like this, can lead one to feel helpless or downtrodden but the slow down of life can also enable one to heal, sort through one’s priorities and preserve energy to grow more in the future.
