This one had a request attached to it. I asked my inner child- “What would you like to show me?”
And this is what came to be.
A person caught in the storm of shame. The borders between the person and the shame storm are messy- as shame often does this to us. We can not determine what is “ours” and what is “not ours”. We become engulfed in the maelstrom of others.
But if you look at the figure closely- you see she has one eye open. She sees and she knows- something that every person that is being shamed is told not to do. “Don’t see. And more importantly, don’t know, what is being done to you.”
I am never sure if my art ever has a nice culminating message. I wish I would create things with really good, succinct answers.
The art, though, is what it is- capturer of the healing process- letting no step go unacknowledged.
