Firmament Cracked #4 - Entrapment
Digital Art - Digital Painting
This is the fourth in a series of 16 paintings titled FIRMAMENT CRACKED - Inside Trauma. It represents the traumatized person's feelings when they discover that a force or a person outside their control has surrounded them and intends to do harm to them, to use them, or to manipulate them in some way. For example, a child who is molested may be told by the molester that their family will be killed if they try to get away. A woman who tries to leave her violent partner may find that doing so has resulted in him threatening to kill her children. A person suffering from a serious illness may be faced with a decision about medical treatments in which either choice could potentially kill them. These are only some of many terrifying examples of feeling that we are entrapped. If you know someone who has faced such a situation--and you surely do, whether you know it or not--maybe you can start to imagine some of their emotions as you look at this painting. I hope that it and the others in this series will provide an opportunity to understand the difficulties of trauma sufferers and lead to more understanding and compassionate responses toward them.
