Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This self portrait explores the vulnerability and inner conflict I have as an artist hoping to win an art prize. It’s titled ‘hopeless romantic’, as I see the process of trying to win an art prize much similar to that of putting myself out there hoping to fall in love. In one hand I’m holding a rose, dressed to impress and hoping I’m good enough. And in the other hand I’m holding a note with the truth, that ultimately I am looking for love in all the wrong places because the only person that needs to love me is me. The butterflies and stars that appear in my works are also symbolic of growth and being a dreamer, which i feel are very important to managing rejection but also being relentless in pursuit.
