Freedom – liberation - power
What does it mean to be truly free?
For me, it is the ability to live my life the way I want to live it; to make my own choices; to have the opportunity to truly be myself.
Sometimes I wonder how many animals have that feeling of freedom. They all want it. All sentient beings do.
Every animal on this planet wants to live their happiest life, but often when they are serving humans, their life is not even close to the life they should be living.
Wings symbolise many things, and when I paint them, they symbolise freedom and power. I paint them on the animals who do not typically have wings, because I dream of a time when these animals are liberated from oppression and cruelty.
I dream of a time when animals are not viewed as commodities, but as beings equally worthy of living their best life on Earth.
This painting was inspired by a recent art prompt from the Art of Compassion Project. The prompt was: ‘Why are you vegan?’
I am vegan for animal liberation. I am vegan because I believe that all animals should be able to spread their metaphorical (or real) wings and live the life they are meant to be living.
