For Myself by Camille Gillyboeuf


charcoal on paper | 48.2 x 37.6

Ignoring my imperfections until the reality of ageing forced me to confront them; this artwork was created during a period of denial, unable to come to terms with a body who seemingly betrayed me. It was during the process of trying to express my anxiety visually that I came to understand the source of my own fear; a fear that I believe many women share with me, that anything less than young and beautiful will result in being alone. The perfectly maintained and sculpted garden, sinister and hostile for the vulnerable and exposed. The woman runs from herself, rather than the society that is the cause of this torment.
