Wooden Shoe Form, wood base, paint, and assorted found objects.
Trying to fit in with any popular or successful group brings risks of not fitting in. Here the figure is colorful and flamboyant, loud and confident, but doesn’t feel that way inside. Lifting the wood on the back reveals an upside-down Seven of Swords Mini Tarot Card, which means Imposter Syndrome or Keeping Secrets. At first glance, without knowing where to look, one wouldn’t know the character feels anything but confident, just as we all appear more competent than we often feel inside, and do our best to keep that hidden from others.
