Description of Artwork
It’s been a year since I experienced sexual trauma and reclaiming not only my pride or my confidence but my body as well has been quite the struggle for me. Trauma can have a lasting effect on victims, and I’ve channeled my pain into my craft. This work is all about pride and self-love, repossessing ownership of a body that has been so battered and bloody and bruised. This piece, titled “Rotted Rib Cage” is a 8.5×11″ canvas with mixed media elements.
