All Tied Up by Rayven Collins

Currently unavailable for purchase

graphitint (sp?) pencils. It’s a new kind of colored graphite pencils by Derwent. Colorsoft colored pencils and a wee bit of charcoal. Mixed media.. that’s easier haha!

This is a feminist piece about how women feel tied to their society as a certain model. I tried to evoke the emotion of being intimidated and insecure. Also a feeling of vulnerability and submission. Being a slave to society. We have all these standards we have to live up to and it’s hard to pull away from being frail and weak. This piece is similar to “I am not your slave” to which all these ideas were in my head while doing these.

    This is a very beautiful piece of art, a very telling piece of art, one can only hope that the ties that bind have been broken if not loosened.
