Beyond the Status Quo

Beyond The Status Quo


Size: 20" x 20"

Doing things outside the "norm" isn't something that comes naturally to everyone. For me, it used to. I used to relish being and doing things differently. I enjoyed the shock and often joy that I received from others when they discovered something about me that caused them to see me as a "weirdo". I'd get a kick out it when I did something that made people look twice. An eating disorder took away my comfort with that fanciful feeling and replaced it with fear and shame. Working on this piece, I really challenged myself to push myself further with my art than I had preciously allowed myself. I focussed on seeing the textures and patterns in my subject and allowing my creativity to represent them in new ways.

After all, things are seldom as they appear to be.

Beyond the Status Quo

This piece is a reminder to myself that there's beauty in unusual things.

see full description & specifications

One of the struggles of living with and recovering from an eating disorder is the challenge of having a voice in your head that wants you to compare everything about yourself to others. When I painted this piece, at first I had to force myself create flowers that didn't look like anything I'd seen anyone else paint. As I worked on it, though, I was able to lose myself in the fun I was having with colour and shape. It truly took me beyond my status quo.
