Female empowerment oil portrait painting of faces - be kind
A powerful oil painting that confronts the many adverse statistics faced by women. Four faces are stacked on the canvas - one has a tear rolling down her cheek. We are invited to wonder which of these four women represents 'the statistic' - her signs may not be visible. A reminder that people are struggling with many things and the face they present to the world may never show the depths of their pain. A dark and moving portrait artwork. Would love to see this one in a therapy space, doctor's office etc.
