Like everyone else, I have been dulled by our world’s media distractions. At times, my eyes stop seeing what is truly beautiful. The media's influence seems inescapable.
I painted The Natural Woman a few years ago. She serves as my protest…my attempt to transcend my own beauty insecurities. The art process gave me clarity and still does. Her expression serves to inspire me to live more freely and virtuously.
The media propagandists create disastrous illusions of beauty. These illusions leave women feeling empty, separated and shackled by a beauty industry whose only concern is profit. We rarely see media images of women with beautiful age-changed faces.
We must be awakened…our eyes changed. The media is everywhere and we must learn to read it, deconstruct so it doesn't destroy us.
Live your life freely and love yourself without measure. More art at www.kellyparkssnider.com.
