STATEMENT ABOUT THE WORK:
These 3 pieces are my self portraits.
I believe in finding within me, who I trully am trying to separate myself that way from what others think, or whats society needs or expects me to be.
Eliminating paradigms, eliminating expectations, looking really within.
We are still in a patriarchial society, but instead of blaming or pointing at others we should raise each human being as individuals to their maximum, elevating their soul with love and therefore creating a much more concious society.
Our greatness within! We are perfect with all our imperfections! Understanding that is the key to accepting ourselves.
Lets expand our sould and open up to all humanity with love and compassion!
