“She Found Herself”
Oil, Acrylic, Plaster, Mixed Media on Canvas
48 x 48 inches
Chaos on the outside, tranquil on the inside, she took a walk through her soul :: she was found holding her truth …
"She Found Herself" is part of the "She Comes With A Past: The Art of Healing" painting series which are oil and mixed media paintings on canvas that explore and empathize with the experience of surviving childhood sexual abuse — reflecting trauma, healing and transformation through abstraction and color. Nadia’s paintings, and the process to create them, embody deep narrative and layering; each mark on the canvas is an indication of the artist’s past and present. Through traces of writings and textures in the sub-layers, strata upon strata of content gets buried beneath successive layers, but never deep enough to disappear. While on the surface you see bright colors and bold words, there is an intertwining and intersecting with the past sub-layers, creating a new expression of empowerment.
