Stop Holding Back is part of the Urban Collection.
“Stop Holding Back” is a dynamic call to action created by San Diego artist Ann Golumbuk. Women have been told for centuries to take up less space, to downplay their successes, and to quietly fit into roles made for them. This staggering mixed media piece defies a tradition of
holding back and galvanizes women to own their individual value and worth.
The visual push and pull of this work allow the viewer to empathize with the weighty disorientation of societal pressure and the need to break down barriers. In a world that seems to accept the moral and social injustices of our time, the message of “Stop Holding Back” has never been more relevant.
