Self Competence

“Composure” series looks at the intricate relationship between our inner struggles and external facade, and “Self Competence” captures the essence of this internal battle. In this painting, we explore the idea of self-competence, where we manipulate our persona to navigate the challenges of our environments. It’s a portrayal of the strength we project outwardly, concealing our inner turmoil. Yet, as the painting suggests, this facade is but a temporary shield, and the true cost of such composure lies within. “Inner Resilience” is a visual reflection of the dichotomy between our external competence and the hidden vulnerabilities we carry.
