Save Yourself belongs to a trilogy of striking photography art pieces that Naomi felt compelled to create during the first ‘lockdown’ in response to the world that she was seeing at the time and the difficulties that we were all experiencing.  The trilogy reference Naomi’s studies on ‘Societal Programming’ and ‘Conformity’ and her own story where she felt pressure as a woman and a mother to look and behave in a certain way, stay in her place, be good, be grateful and strive for society approved goals in life.

 

Save Yourself was heavily inspired by a book written by Glennon Doyle called ‘Untamed’, which came out over lockdown and really resonated Naomi and her journey and explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet others’ expectations and start trusting the voice deep within us.  She quit pleasing and started living.  Naomi drew on her own experiences as a Mother and a Woman and wanted to create a piece of art that examines what carrying the heavy burden of living up to Society’s expectations looks like and references her realisation that ‘My children do not need me to save them, they need to watch me save myself and show them how to fully live’.

Naomi juxtaposed the meaning of the piece against a Baywatch styled glamorous model, which we normally associate with rescuing others, and  poses the question; ‘Is she going to save herself this time?’.

 

This creation is a good example of Naomi’s evolutionary nature, bringing photography, which has always been a medium that features in her working process, to a medium in its’ own right. Coupled with her desire to juxtapose what looks like a glossy vogue styled image against something with a deeper meaning, this image is a real Collector’s piece.

 

This incredible thought-provoking piece of photography art is perfect to bring a wow factor to your interior space – whether it’s an electrifying lightbox with gold edging that you are after for the ultimate in luxe living or a glossy acrylic piece – it will make a beautiful piece of art that you will always be touched by.
