Com/part/men/tal/i/za/tion Painting Series
This series reflects upon the natural habit of human beings and cultural influence. There are ideas imbedded in our minds of diverse identities, roles and attributes that we have to project to different aspects of our lives. This series is about looking inside your own "boxes," shredding them apart and embracing the freedom to be all of who you are. "A person is not trapped my life's boxes. Step out of each box and discover the true gift of the self."-Melissa Patterson
