Oil on canvas
8 x 10 inches
Selfie is Analee’s perilous attempt to represent some of the young women of today; empowered, working to make their own choices but struggling to face their imperfections. This 8 x 10-inch oil on canvas painting provokes with her tongue out, camera phone ready, and a lit cigarette on hand.
“Right when the world met a grinding halt, we spent more alone time with our thoughts. We felt guilt and worthlessness. It’s okay to feel. To be lonely, to be imperfect, and embrace fragility. It doesn’t make us less of a person, it’s what makes us humans. Acknowledge it, embrace it, and only then can we work on making things better.”
