Child

Artist's Statement:

The artist grapples with the excessive pressures of social media. Adapting 19th century portraiture to meet contemporary societal expectations of immediacy and image, Child is unashamedly confrontational, a personal portrait of the artist’s teenage daughter vying for acceptance, all the while questioning the value of instant gratification and intolerable expectations.
