I grew up a white woman in affluent America. This oil on canvas painting explores my experience of examining my complicity and resulting fragility when examining my privilege as a white woman. It examines my desire to make the view of myself more acceptable. Softer. Well-meaning. Holding thistle is prickly, it’s softest edge being the bloom. What mental calisthenics do we use to avoid our shame?
