Together

by: Bente Schoone, Eindhoven, Netherlands

I like me but I'm glad everyone isn't like me.

Artist Statement

“No matter how different we are, we will always find a way to be together.” This is the thought that I kept in mind as I made this painting. People, animals and everything that lives is searching to be together, however different they may be. Perhaps some people have lost sight of this; they have prejudices and do not see that we can be together despite our differences. But when you look at every baby and young child, you’ll see that they give love to everyone no matter how different they are from them. They are our future; we should learn from them how they embrace life’s differences.
