This artwork is a representation of me as an artist and the message I want to convey. I am from multiple backgrounds that are normally seen as opposites in society, such as liberal and christian, or half of my family being from a wealthy background and the other half being from a poor background. I wanted to exemplify how these often-considered opposite viewpoints coexist within me and create harmony and peace. The lotus flower symbolizes harmony, and the various colored straps exemplifies the linking of different opinions, also shown through the different people from different demographics. The hands reaching for the flower convey my desire to reach the harmony between my various backgrounds, beliefs, and opinions. This piece was printed to be an accordion book.
