“The subject of this painting is a remarkably strong young woman named Bess, who has faced considerable adversity over the past few years. After bearing the burden of previous traumas in silence, she finally spoke out and sought help. The darks in the picture signify the shadows of the past, while the warm and intimate lighting suggests a brighter future as a result of her courage. This portrait intends to capture a certain moment of allowed vulnerability, but also the incredible bravery and determination in her gaze directly at the viewer, giving us hope.” Kiki Gongliewski
