Will It Always Be Like This?



Title: Will It Always Be Like This?
Year Completed: 2023
Size: 27 x 22 inch cardboard.
Technical: Acrylic paint, found image collage, and glitter

In this piece I chose to represent myself shedding tears, embedded in a collage of found images that conveyed the emotions of my recent challenges: a person wrestling with a serpent, a man removing his whole face with his glasses, a woman standing on a high dive among the clouds, looking down at perils below. My aim was to represent the flurry of thoughts that overcome me when I experience waves of intense emotion & the weight that those feelings continue to carry even after those moments of intensity pass.
