ABOUT THIS ARTWORK
In this patriarchal society of the US, we as a collective are finally starting to see a rise in the value of matriarchy and a swing towards femininity. This long overdue movement is allowing woman to reclaim their equality and step into the goddess being that every single woman possesses. It is such a beautiful moment in time. In that same notion, masculinity is often being shunned and seen a negative. And there is certainly a good reason why this is happening due to the path patriarchy has led us. However, I believe that true masculinity, Grounded Masculinity is invaluable. I believe that the man who has gone through trials of chauvinism, ego, anger, womanizing and so on, who has gone beyond to reach a place of true beautiful masculinity in its highest of forms deserves to be honored and treated like a God, just as much as the Goddess. This painting was created to honor and celebrate said man who can laugh like a child and show love and compassion through masculinity in a way in which helps to raise the narrative of the human experience.
