Artwork Description

This painting represents identity creation through interaction and the reasoning mind. The young girl in her mother's shoes, talking to the yellow pokemon sitting on a pony, is developing an identity by resolving contradictions between the idea of self (from parents), and reasoning with individuality.

The red serpent at the base of her feet is the archetypal image of our deepest instincts, and emotions. The instinct to follow the parent's footsteps, fill their shoes, and follow their path for fear of being ‘bitten’. The pokemon, however, is pointing to a different path, and in accepting or rejecting the perception of self, the child can make their own path, resulting in defining their true identity.
