A state of Vulnerability is a reflection of my personal belief that we all ~ regardless of who you are or what your personal narrative is ~ need to take more time to reflect upon what is before us. Life is finite and therefore if one does not take the time to move to a deeper emotional or spiritual level there is a continual risk of human disconnection. At the core of this human disconnection is the potential for one feeling a deep sense of unhappiness, which sadly is a very true story for many at this present time. My artistic intention with this piece is to challenge the viewers to understand that one can move to a safe place of vulnerability and yet stay emotionally grounded. My personal belief is that true strength comes from one's ability to express internal vulnerability.
