• About the painting •
This is a piece I've worked on for many months. I started with stamping my body on the canvas to practice figure. It's transformed many times and had different influences from various artists.
I call it split beauty because of my body image battles. Im hot one day and cold the next. Despite my progress it's still a struggle because having an eating disorder for the past 10 years distorted my view of the female body and what was considered beautiful. I'm now a few months into recovery from anorexia and bulimia. So I used this painting to help change my view from distorted to a healthier one.
It's not perfect, but a lot of my time and emotion went into this piece so I look forward to finding it a new home where it can inspire others
