Artist Statement: “Overgrowth” | My name is Ana Del Prete, and this is the first painting I ever completed. This piece demonstrates the wealth of ideas I have to give, but how I am restricted by my physical being and demographics. The flowers blooming are the ideas I can share with the world, but my voice is muted often due to my gender and sexuality. One of my main messages through art focuses on physicality, primarily through my own body or bodies like it. This is more than body positivity – it’s an examination of the world through the bounds of our physical selves.
