THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Expectations Painting features a woman sitting atop what appears to be a stone ledge and looking to her right. All around her are origami swans, some large and prominent, but others less visible. The woman is wearing a waist cincher as she looks down at a paper swan that is on his way to transforming into a real swan. This piece seems to serve as commentary about the desire for a woman to transform herself into an idealistic, unattainable image of beauty and how it isn't possible for her to do so, any more than it's possible for a paper swan to become a real swan.
