“Sacrifices for Beauty” was an digital painting assignment regarding A+B=C.
I wanted to draw a matchbox with shoes as the matches. With my peers and my desire to be considered “beautiful,” I realized how far people were willing to do. So much money spent on clothes, make up, other beauty products, yet this is all something on the surface yet a luxury that so many people seek. Makes me wonder if all this really is worth it. Do we all really need to hurt and mutilate our bodies for the sake of self-gratification and approval from others.
