I used to struggle with my identity like many others. Sometimes others define who we are for us. Sometimes we hide behind the labels we place in front of ourselves. I used to stick to my labels so strongly that they clouded who I really was and as such only served to limit me even more. But if you rid yourself of the need to label who you are, the clouds may part and you gain new freedom to present yourself to the world.
This print will show the textures beautifully and will give a mind-activating piece to spark thought and conversation to anyone who comes through. Even the background gradient, similar to a rainbow, sparks feelings of acceptance and openness!
Many of us grow up feeling like we do not belong in our own skin or in our own lives, like we are imposters to ourselves. Growing up queer, I had to act like I was someone else to survive. I had to pretend that I was something I was not. I created an imposter.
For some of us, identity is fluid. We take control of who we are and decide our fate, almost rushing to try and achieve agency in our lives. Sometimes, this leads us to become even more confused, placed in an almost dreamlike state where we are unsure of who we are today and who we might become tomorrow.
