To truly know ourselves requires absolute truth internally and externally, and to achieve this is to first unveil the mask that we hide behind and only then is it possible to allow our hearts to be open for love and happiness. But to reveal our true identities can be difficult, because human beings are masters of deception and the one we often fool the most is ourselves.
We trick ourselves into building this outer layer of our “self” so that we are accepted into society and because doing otherwise would lead us into being exiled from all that we are surrounded by. But in the end, we are only misleading ourselves down a road that does not lead to happiness.
And that is what life is about, happiness, which cannot be achieved by pretending. So we need to strip away this external layer of ourselves and allow the internal to resonate on our outer being, regardless if it’s socially acceptable, because it’s better to be happy and an individual then discontented and ordinary.
Sara Kinneary grew up in the central NJ town of Morganville. She began to draw around the age of 14 and discovered it came easier than sports or academics. She started practicing doing sketches of cartoons and portraits from photographs as a means to strengthen her skills and develop a personal technique.
Shortly after, she began to experiment with oil and acrylic paint on her basement walls and has not stop painting or drawing since. After earning an AAS in Fine Arts from Brookdale Community College in Lincroft NJ Sara moved to NYC to attend Pratt Institute in Brooklyn to earn her BFA with a concentration in Painting.
While living in NYC Sara's work was featured in a number of exhibitions including "Memoirs of the Skinny" at the LES venue The Skinny Bar and in "The Haunted Gallery of Addiction" at Chasama, in Midtown.
