Speaking My Mind


Artist: Sreetama Ray


“”Speaking my Mind” is a drawing from personal experiences of people reacting poorly to my directness.

All works are watercolor and pen on paper, drawn freehand. My works are drawn from simple, everyday occurrences and feelings that are identifiable across cultures. The biggest challenge I face in my work is being completely honest about my thoughts and feelings and putting that honest introspection on display, sans any romantic distortions. This is especially more challenging when people who know me are watching, because it threatens to break down the facades we so carefully build as our public personas. And with this deconstruction, comes acceptance of who I really am.”
