Embrace

By Rebecca Lee (Philadelphia, USA)

Acrylic on canvas, 18″x24″

 

“My mother passed away from lung cancer when I was 16, but before that, she beat breast cancer. This piece is dedicated to all the women who endure not only the immeasurable physical pain, but the pain of learning to love their body again. Art should not be restricted to conventional conceptions of beauty, and with this painting, I hope to pull back that curtain just a little bit more. ”
