An abstracted self-portrait that highlights the right eye and portion of the nose, leaving most the face in dark tones of brown, red, orange, and purple. The rest of the silhouette is just that, an outline that holds eye gazing toward the right (left for the viewer). A high horizon line cuts the background into fields of yellow, green, and unbleached titanium.
From my Phobia Series, an ongoing series I revisit periodically. Inspired by my own irrational fears, the landmine-like triggers associated with PTSD, and the onslaught of anxiety. Living in any state of fear takes major tolls on those inflicted, as well as those around them. Often times these fears can render a person paralyzed and unable to ask for help. Communication breaks down, lost in a sea of no tomorrow. There are no words. These pieces represent some of those dark places. Through hopelessness, I seek to understand the pain and push through. Lift the mental burdens that challenge positive growth and find ways to understand them.
