Can't Show You All of Me

135.00

11" x 14" x 0.75", acrylic and pastel on gallery wrapped canvas. 

Was thinking about the idea of fullness...of being fully ourselves for this #dangerousstorieschallenge painting. The story we tell ourselves is that in order to fit in, we must splice and dice and label and compartmentalizations each other and ourselves (especially online). We get such small glimpses and put each other and ourselves in small boxes and try to fit the molds we make up- like perfectionism, or inauthentic happiness or success. When we do this, it can perpetuate feelings of unworthiness and loneliness. It’s so hard to do, but allowing others to see the patched up or murky areas means we aren’t cutting ourselves off. It means we can authentically connect with one another. There’s nothing like being seen and accepted for who you really are.
