Know Yourself

Know Yourself

Louise Rowland

I value self-knowledge. It is the basis of our self- awareness and in turn our self-love, which to me is essential. Are you good to yourself? Is your mind kind to your body and soul? This series of four digital illustrations depicts abstract characters and their relationships with themselves. The theme of duality is created through contrasting colours and composition. We often show one person to the world and forget what the person inside might really be like. 

It prompts a question of self-knowledge and love in this image-obsessed and pressurising world we live in. Stop and think, how do you really treat yourself?
