"Pale" - IF



This week I was inspired by the concept of one`s aggression being the source of their own vulnerability and weakness, or vice versa. This image is of Medusa as both threatening and weak, weighed down by her extreme aggression. It is the vicious cycle of one who cannot control or balance one`s emotions, turning them into a self-inflicting tool of despair.
I wish I could have worked more on this. It was sketched out in oil on board.
