The Art of Loving Oneself

This morning, while reading and meditating about loving oneself and embracing inner irritants and pain like you are holding a child...All the while, staring at a painting of a mother holding her baby, in a moment of strife and also of pure beauty and love, I realized that what I have been painting is about levels and types of power that human beings can access and leverage in everyday life: Political and institutional power, socio-cultural power (the power of identity and grouping), and personal or intimate power (concepts of love and personal relationships) at the most fundamental level.

Each of my series, when taken all together, explores these different aspects of power and how they react to, with, and against each other to form and shape our world.
