Oil on canvas
This piece of art describes her thoughts on our current society. There’s a woman inside the bird cage with a cellphone in hand. She lives in the cage just as an animal would, notice the bedding and pillows. The birds are outside of the cage showing that animals are more free than us humans. This also represents the effect that technology have on our lives. The woman inside the cage is also noticing the birds and her surrounding, another thing that is not done as often due to technology. Most of us are on our phones most of the time. Gatherings and special moments are being missed because we’re on our phones and not actually engaged in making memories. The bird is being Envied because of the simple focus on their own survival. Instead we’re on our phones and subliminally allowing the world to tell us how to think, what to wear, what to say, how to look and the list goes on. So the question are we really free?
