In this painting, she’s entangled which is a form of inhibition, and reaching for something deeper. Trying to break out of her restrictions. This larger form here ( stone shape) is something forming in the woman , something growing that she is a part of . She is searching and reaching into the depths of herself, as far as she can go. She is still feeling it out , she’s not sure for what. The upper and lower half circles represent the balance in life that she is trying to achieve. There is also a self embracing and supportive structure formed within herself during this process, that allows more flexibility in her life.
