Strength In Weakness

Pigma ink on paper, 6″ H x 4.5″ W

This portrait challenges the stereotype that men don’t cry and that showing emotion is a sign of weakness. Strength comes from a willingness to connect and that connection sometimes requires taking a risk and being vulnerable. My art explores how cultural dogmas often run at odds to what most people think and feel. It is part of a portrait series that challenges stereotypes and social norms, explores emotions, and provokes viewers to explore their reactions to the work. The goal is to instigate confrontation between our external projections and internal interpretations.
