“Beyond the norms” - The joy of being yourself: a unique character who breaks social norms

When painting this picture I wanted to express a deep desire to break free from the norms and conventions imposed by society. The woman in this picture is a symbol of individualism and uniqueness, which is the theme of the entire series "Grotesque: The Power of Individualism".

Symbolism of hands and feet:

Instead of feet, the woman has another pair of hands, and each of these hands has six fingers. This unusual element has many layers of meaning. Most importantly, the extra hands instead of feet symbolize the desire to act and create on your own terms. Hands are tools of creation, manipulation and interaction with the environment. With extra hands, the woman in the picture can literally and symbolically "create her own path" without worrying about conventional limitations.

Six fingers on the hands emphasize their uniqueness and supernatural ability to transcend norms. It is a metaphor for the inner strength and possibilities that lie within every human being if we only choose to accept and use them. What may seem grotesque or unnatural at first glance is actually a manifestation of unbridled creativity and freedom.

Breaking out of the norms:

The woman in the picture, surrounded by ladybug wings, also symbolizes the protection and tenderness that comes with the courage to be yourself. Her calm, confident demeanor in the face of her uniqueness is a call to acceptance and celebration of what makes us different. Through her calm look and comfort in the unusual shape, I want to convey that true freedom lies in accepting yourself as you are, regardless of social expectations and norms. This image, as well as the entire series "Grotesque: The Power of Individualism," is intended to inspire viewers to reflect on their own identity and encourage them to reject the limitations imposed by external influences. It is a manifestation of the joy and satisfaction that comes from being authentic, with all of your unique qualities and talents.

Motives used in the picture:

Feet:

  • Foundation and foundation: Feet, as the basis of the Body, symbolize the foundation on which we stand. They mean stability and a feeling of rootedness in life.
  • Direction and path: Feet show the direction, where we go. They symbolize our life paths, decisions and actions.

Hands:

  • Touch and sensuality: Hands are sensitive to touch and a tool for perceiving the world around us. They symbolize sensuality and closeness.
  • Expression and gestures: Hands are also in the Non-verbal communication is crucial for expressing emotions, thoughts and intentions.

Specific symbolism in my painting:

  • Extra hands instead of feet: This unusual feature symbolizes the desire to create and act in all areas of life. Instead of taking the conventional path (feet), the figure in the picture chooses to create his own path (hands). This highlights her determination to create and shape her reality on her own terms.
  • Six fingers: The unusual number of fingers symbolizes superhuman abilities or unique talents that distinguish this character. It is a metaphor for transcending norms and realizing one's full potential.

The entire symbolism of the legs, hands, feet and hands in this image emphasizes the motif of breaking out of conventions, a creative approach to life and finding one's own unique path in a world full of norms.

“What makes me different makes me who I am”

🎨 Colour shades and style:

Color nuances: The painting is characterized by lively and high-contrast colors. The sky in the background is a clear, vibrant blue that creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere. The clouds are depicted in soft white tones which add depth and dimension to the image. The central figure has green hair that is in intense, bold tones and stands out strongly from the background. The red element on which the figure sits is covered in black dots, reminiscent of the wings of a ladybug. The woman's skin tones are in natural, warm colors, while her black suit contrasts sharply with the bright colors in the background.

Style: The style of the painting is surrealistic and grotesque, which is perfect for the series "Groteska: Siła Indywidualizmu" fits. The figure is depicted with exaggerated proportions and unusual features, such as the extra hands instead of feet and the six fingers on each hand. These surrealistic elements give the image a dreamy and fantastical quality. The clear lines and intense coloring are characteristic of a modern, expressive style that emphasizes the uniqueness and individualism of the figure depicted. The overall impression of the painting is both fascinating and challenging as it encourages viewers to reflect on societal norms and personal freedom.
