Trapped to Embrace
Updated: Dec 20, 2019
This artwork was to express how I felt at my school. As an artistically inclined student who is vocal about political and social issues, I feel limited at times at a conservative Christian private school in a conservative county. This piece is expressing how I felt about myself at times with my creativity and my identity. The beautiful sky in the background expresses how the environment I live in looks perfect and seems like it is without worries. Also, the toplessness of the man expresses this feeling of looking like the person expressed in this environment is who he really is. The colorful bird expresses creativity and multiple opinions and beliefs, which is trapped behind bars within the man.
