Acrylic on canvas.
We live in a world where I, as a female, feel overwhelmed by surrounding pressures which has led to positions of low self esteem and a sense of desperation, particularly how it relates to the way I feel that women are treated in our society. This work was created as a personal therapeutic outlet, as a relatable work of art for the countless other women in my shoes, as well as to allow for a space to promote and highlight this pervasive societal injustice. This work allows the viewer a portal into someone’s life. A woman suffering under the pressures and expectations of society and the negative impact that that has on oneself and on the people around them. The irony being in her ability to care for the life around her but not being able to care for herself.
