Value of Beauty

Value of Beauty

The meaning behind this piece is self image, specifically body image. There is an incredible pressure put on us to fit into society's standards of beauty, which is not fair. The skeleton is golden, to signify that true beauty comes from within.

More back story: This is the first oil painting after 8 years of acrylic painting, so it is a very important piece. Those 8 years of acrylic painting was mostly comprised of property work (Paid jobs with other companies' ideas and characters), and not much of my personal voice. While very exciting, it had being weighing on me creatively for years and I was looking for something more. Supplementing these personal pieces with the property work is a perfect balance.
