Each of us has an identity, a collection of unique qualities that embodies who we are. As we go through life, we strive not only to define our own identity, but to connect with others who share our perspective. We search for moments that feel authentic and real, that speak to who we are and what we believe. We gravitate toward images and symbols that resonate with our spirit.
A symbol is a common expression of a heartfelt belief. Symbols have been passed through the ages as a way for us to impart emotions and ideas. Symbols of bravery, love, belonging, danger and passion exist all around us. They remind us of feelings, we identify with them, they center us.
In Symbolic, I speak to our recognition of ourselves as part of a greater whole. Symbolic is a reminder that our identity exists not only as uniquely ours, but as part of a shared celebration of creativity. Collective imagery is both powerful and comforting. Use this painting as a catalyst for the expression of your ideals and beliefs, and be open to the world’s affirmation of your soul.
