Selfies

Kimari Green's avatar Kimari Green

"Selfies" are a sign of the time. These self-photos are relevant to today's social media craze and representative of how we want the world to view us. Unfortunately, social media is a very crucial aspect in the self image of today's teens. It can make or break their reputation and play a big part in how they measure their worth. These three paintings of "selfie" photos are of very important teen girls in my life. Each painting shows the image they want the viewer to see of them. We live in an age where people are so influenced by other's opinions of our images and social media that it makes it harder for them to be influenced by parents, family and the God who made them so beautifully. Their identity can be so deeply influenced by what others comment about or "like" about them, but it is God who should define who they are.
