Beauty In The Broken

"Untitled Kintsugi 2020" by Carmen Gloria Pérez

“Untitled Kintsugi 2020” ~ Is the title of my most recent painting.

We can all feel the pressure crushing us into little pieces sometimes.

She is crushed, cracked and broken, yet she is mended back together with gold – Inspired by the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi and blending it with my Latin roots – Reminding us that there is beauty in the broken, and that we should embrace our flaws & “brokenness.” 

#Kintsugi is the Japanese #art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with #gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create a more beautiful and stronger piece of art. Using this as a metaphor for healing ourselves teaches us that sometimes in the process of repairing things that have broken, we actually create something more unique, beautiful and resilient.

Wishing you a love, light & healing day.
