Cutting Deep

5 Comments

Here's my new semester-long project from Painting II finally finished! lol It's an 18x24 oil painting on a wood panel.

My work here is meant to exploit the much too common issue today of verbal abuse. Of how the words you use against another can cut much deeper than you realize; causing long term side effects such as issues with the victim's self esteem, self mutilation, or too often suicide.

Depicted here are words that i have personally experienced mainly due to my sexuality; fag, freak, dike, whore, slut. Whether you realize it or not, what you say has an impact on a person whether you know them personally or whether they're just a stranger.

That's interesting. The setting reminds me of something from a revenge horror film.
