Bought in

Acquired by the current owner directly from the artist, She is Tired is an allegorical painting about navigating life’s hardships. If things become troublesome, the painting seems to say, just tip them down like you would with a wheelbarrow, freeing yourself from your burdens rather than carrying them with you.

This artwork has been cleaned and lightly touched up and comes with a condition report.
