Self Care is a piece created by loneliness. In the midst of the pandemic I lost myself in social media drowning in videos about #SelfCare. Online, self care looks like face masks and a glass of wine in an expensive bathtub. This mindset drove me insane because it never worked for me. I continued to be disappointed, depressed, and tired. Truly, I struggled with sleeping, remembering to drink water, and eating on time which is much more important. In Self Care, I convey the darkness hidden in forgetting basic necessities.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
As an artist who grew up in the city of Nashville, Sage has learned what it means to utilize the city and the various demographic that roam within the art of Photography. They began shooting in 2012 with a small Samsung Nx300, and a tripod from their late grandfather.
Today, Sage Eubanks explores the realms of many different types of Photography: Street, Boudoir, and their most stunning, Portrait. By examining their personal grief, societal hyper-masculinity, universal racial oppression, and the struggles of being an artist in the 21st century, they create beautiful statements on sorrow, insecurity, and pain with diverse faces.
