Ellen Von Wiegand – Trust, 2020


A few words of the artist about this piece:

“I love the way the figure in this piece is owning her body fully. I’m always oscillating between feeling strong in my form and feeling less empowered. I realise what creates this confidence is a sense of trust in myself. Trust is the practice of treating ourselves with kindness. It means proving each day that we can rely on our ability to make good choices, to grow, and to begin again with understanding when we fall short of these expectations. Trust is built with time.


I am drawn to the nude as a symbol of vulnerability and strength, and I am inspired by the way in which the posture of a body can offer information into the psyche of the person in the frame. I use my own body as a model, though I don’t see my prints as self portraits but rather a space where one can project their own experience and emotional reality. What comes up for you when you look at this print?”
