22" x 28"
Acrylic on Canvas

A piece about toxic masculinity and the fragility of the ego. A tortured soul crippled by the behavioral expectations of a western society rejects parts of his inner self and retracts from the outer world. Each flower represents a different cultural or psychological concept, such as fame, wealth, material possession, social status, etc. This piece reminds us to check in with ourselves and ask whether or not the relationship we have with these concepts are healthy or toxic.
