Comfort & Pain
Latex and Oil Paint on Panel
36" x 24"

From personal experience I visually explored why people often stay in toxic relationships. I combined a comfortable pastel colored knit sweater pattern and a silhouetted figure crossing their arms to express the comfort and contentment felt by being in a relationship with someone you love. The hand slapped red, blue, and purple paint over the face, then bring in the harmful abuse that cuts through the comfort, but does not destroy it. Because the two often exist simultaneously, many people remain in toxic and abusive relationships.

The painting extends around the edges on a sturdy wooden panel.
