This is a unique work
Oil on canvas
40 x 50 x 2 cm
Inspired by the shame and guilt we often carry with us I painted this woman with half colourful face and half black and white. She is about to break free from the shame she used to live in and she is stepping out into the light. Just as many of us are doing and are going to do.
You used to play.
You have quit.
You know it was coming.
It has been there from the start.
Shadows of shame following you wherever you turned.
The past, ghosting and making all colours fade into grey.
They thought they had the right to tell you how you are.
Made you evaluate yourself harshly.
You were covered in shame.
And wanted to vanish.
That was then, you have quit.
You don’t need to hold on to anything that doesn’t serve you.
Don’t cloth yourself in shame.
Shake it off.
Shake until the colours come through.
You are brighter than you think.
Live a shame free life.
It’s rightfully yours.
