“This idea came from my lingering trait of pessimism. Depression sometimes makes it hard for me to enjoy the positives of life, so I tend to dwell on the negatives. Extraordinary things tend to feel like the ordinary at times.”

“My insecurities played a huge role in this piece. I used a monochromatic color scheme to depict the feeling of discomfort and emptiness.”

 

“This piece was based on the idea of frustration and irritability: which are some of my more distinguished traits. My mind at times, feels swarmed of benign thoughts that seem malicious. This is one of out of seven pieces revolved around my deepest emotional state.”

 

“The alienation in my depression played a role in this piece. I used this Black and White, shadow-like presence to depict how anxiety can linger and/or appear at times. This is one of out of seven pieces revolved around my deepest emotional state.” (Made with permanent marker on white bristol board.)
