Untangling the chains by Michelle Hold


This vibrant painting talks about a very strong emotion I have lived through.

I have always questioned the idea that we have to do do certain things and show specific behavior in society. In my opinion specially women have been pressed into a role that serves society, have family , take care of them and forget about your own desires and ambitions. Or if you have them do work, carry the workload of both aspects as you should never forget that family is first.

My mother still today will say to me: stop being an artist you got to serve your family and be a ‘house wife’ first. Already the word HOUSE wife says it all.

In this painting with the help of the vibration of orange and red color hues I show the joy and liberation that arrives the moment you untangle these chains and follow your passions.
