Anastasia – Sack Tin Lim PREVIEW
Sack Tin Lim
Oil on Canvas
"Anastasia" is portrayed in a serene seated position on a couch. It's important to highlight her unique heritage - she is of mixed Punjabi Chinese descent. My choice to paint her was motivated by the desire to spotlight a seldom-seen racial background, particularly from within a marginalized community. This painting seeks to celebrate the diversity present among transgender individuals. Anastasia's visage captures a deep well of sorrow, a stark contrast to many other portraits. Through her depiction, I aim to convey numerous stories that have shaped her life - tales of relentless stigmatization and societal condemnation. Despite this adversity, she embodies an unwavering yearning to embrace her true self, unapologetically navigating her path amidst the prevailing stigma.
