BRIGHT RED CONFIDENCE
This vibrant self portrait is the second piece in my developing series on sex and self love - and the very complicated relationship between the two. It illustrates a growing comfort in my own skin and willful step forward in letting go of the shame I’ve internalized and associated with the concepts of sexual desire and nudity.
This one of a kind artwork is a celebration of bodies and the freedom to express oneself, but also a dark tribute to the risks that come with sexual confidence and the censorship of feminine bodies. It was created in part to honour the challenges faced by anyone who dares to show off or be proud of a body that is feminine or queer or any other something that makes the public feel entitled to censor their existence.
It should serve as a reminder that all bodies deserve respect no matter how they are being displayed.
All bodies deserve celebration.
