what are the emotions we feel after trauma? It's ok to be angry and hopeful at the same time. Anger at the loss or at the betrayal? It is more than ok to remain optimistic and hopeful. What do we have but hope? What elsr can you hold onto when your life is upside down and forever different? How can you make it so you are not part of the stigma, but rather breaking it? This painting is an exploration of trauma on the body, the psyche and one's overall being.. of survival and conqueror. It is a philosophical glimpse into a very deep anf painful subject that does not have it's voice. It's ok to be angry but never give up! let that anger create a voice for those who think they dont have one -victimized by violence who have physical, mental and/or emotional disabilities.
