The first step in healing is acknowledging you have a problem. There's no such thing as a point of no return if you're still alive no matter how damaged. Healing with someone else and confronting personal demons is a nice idea, but most of the time it's better to do it alone..

i absolutely love this, especially the images in the mirror

i adore how sludgy you manage to make everything look

your meaning behind this is great, too.

do not stop.

i really like your paintings and your style. this one acually feels as if it was cut out of my memory. it reminds me of a time where my girlfriend (we separated a long time ago) and i were both anorexic and used to stand in front of a big mirror, naked, and watch our decaying, thinning, dying bodies while believing we were bcoming more and more beautiful and whole. we would stretch each others skin at different parts of our bodies believing it to be huge amounts of fat...but it was skin, we were dying of hunger. but as anyone with experience with such diseases knows, our view of the world and especially of OUR SELVES was completely surreal, derranged, amorph. so i really feel as if you had watched us, felt us and seen what we saw and by this created this piece of art. (it is just how it makes me feel personally, i dont know if it is of any interest to anyone. i just want to thank you for creating this and posting this. thank you very much) GrumPM

body dismorphia is a real sonunva bitch. i struggle with that too and my other bullshit problems. though sometimes i don'tthink people take it seriously, but in the end the only one who can solve that problem is you. i'm just really glsd you liked it and at the least meant something to more people. :)

Your paintings and art have strong negative emotions to it, I REALY DIG IT!

linda-mota responds:

that's what i was getting at with this one. Thanks man!


linda-mota responds:

i won't lie painting the butts was a fun part.

Another exceptionally well done piece! Interesting how they're standing below the floor (or is that my perspective?), and the mirror is a dark, rough thing, reflecting the dark, rough things beneath the couple.

linda-mota responds:

the floor thing was an accident actually and i kinda went with it. kinda added to the ambiguity. i think i guess. they did start out as a couple, but not really. to each's own. :)
