Oath to Aphrodite
2021, Oil Paint, 24''x12''x2'', Physical and Online Exhibit
"I haven’t been in the closet for many years now but I find myself reliving the feeling more often than not. Most people when they see me and know about the LGBTQIA community know I fall into one of those categories. The signs are there even if my word didn’t have a name. I painted this to remind myself that I am worthy of respect and love. Love is a feeling it’s a gift. To be able to love and be loved is Aphrodite’s gift. It is a constant reminder of weather I am “out” or not I am me and I deserve to enjoy this gift."
