Hold Back Hate

Although WORDS are merely sound waves, they can hurt more than any solid object.

Artist Statement

This piece shows judgmental words attempting to squeeze into the person’s head and influence her into thinking that way, but the people inside are pushing them away. People need to build an army inside of their heads to prevent judgment of others and to accept them for who they are. Embracing differences begins with you.
