Art for Change

Artist statement

With Time

This painting shows a woman who is going through change. Change takes time. That is why there is an hourglass that is taking the place of her head. She is in different yoga positions with each passing time. The first pose is the tree pose, because I believe that even though you go through change you must always stick to your roots, your morals and who you truly are as a person. The next pose is the cobra pose, and that shows that change also requires to shed everything that doesn’t help you grow. The last pose is Tadasana, also known as the mountain pose. Change is scary and that’s why you need to stand strong like a mountain and be fearless when it comes to new experiences and new chapters that you need to embark in life.
