When people are trapped in an abusive relationship, they often do not share with others what is going on. It’s like they are wearing a mask that on the outside tells everyone things are OK. But on the inside, they are filled with the darkness. How can we shine a light on these masks? This project shows what it's like to feel trapped by domestic violence and a way out. It was made with a bottle cutter, clay, woodwork, and paint.
As a person who has seen abusive relationships firsthand before, it is so important that you made this art. Often times, we can be in denial of something bad and not understand why it is bad, but this art bring awareness and understanding of the truth of domestic abuse relationships.
