This piece is titled "I am an Onion with Many Layers to Peel".
This piece is a self portrait of me and as an onion, and symbolically represents the secrets that each of us keeps. Like an onion, I have various layers of skins where I store memories, some of them joyous, others painful. The piece depics my personal journey to shed moments of shame or pain, and to instead embrace the complex creature I am.
My artistic expression has always been a way to celebrate myself, and to resist all the messages I receive from mainstream society that tell me to hate myself. Being an artist has given me a voice. My art is what helps me make sense of life.
