Dahlia, like the flower, 9x12" print
When Dahlia came to me and began to emerge on canvas, I thought about ways we make little girls (and women) feel like if they don’t have long hair they are less, we rob boys of the joy of flowers in their hair and pink and a little lace. We declare children too young to know their gender when they declare their gender is not what we thought. We protect constructed gender binaries and crush little, growing up, and grown up souls. We create a society and systems that affirm discriminatory practices that do immense harm to our LGBTQIA+ siblings... and for what? Hating someone for who they are adds nothing to who you are. Not a single thing.
Dahlia, represents the beauty that exists way beyond binaries and I’m honored to that this piece came to me and to share them with you.
This listing is for a 9x12" signed, limited edition giclee print on fine art paper.
