"For The Kids"

F O R  T H E  K I D S 

I'm painting young children that post images of themselves on Instagram. The images are charged with adolescent sexuality, and the children are around the age when a more conscience desire for affection from their peers develops. Although these images are posted to gain "likes" and "followers" I feel that painting them fulfills the subject's true desire - to become the object of someone's affection.
