This is my 2nd piece in my Female Strife Series. This series is an artistic exploration of the various struggles faced by women around the world using abstract and conceptual photomanipulation to manifest the emotional and physical pain of these afflictions of the soul & incorporating nude models to express the vulnerability and simple strength of womanhood in adversity. (Note: Although these struggles are not necessarily restricted to women, this project focuses exclusively on the female experience and perspective.)

This piece was inspired by the experience of those suffering from anorexia, starving for sustenance yet psychologically compelled to deny oneself of food.

Thank you so very much Agnieszka! I don't have anorexia myself, but I do struggle with an eating disorder (most of the women in my family have one), so I definitely understand that internal battle! I'm glad that my art was able to express it in a way that can touch others!
