Thorns of a rose by sandrahultsved
Made with graphite pencils, charcoal and color pencils, year 2008.
This was my title work for my very first exhibition. My concept behind this is that the rose is representing me. The thorns are everything that I've gone through and is reflected in what I draw. So the whole concept with that exhibition was to express what has shaped me to who I am and what I feel. Sounds kinda selfish but that's what my art is mostly about, to express myself and my feelings. I believe art is the best therapy!
