Artist Statement:

This piece is representative of the moment when mental anguish starts affecting the physical body. The subject’s face is mostly covered with the subject’s own hands and what is visible of their face is an expression painful distress. The hands are disturbances coming to hurt them from their own mind. They are losing focus and their control is slipping out of their grasp and into the lies of their own mind. They are succumbing to mental illness and their own neurodivergent mind. This piece encapsulates fear and the struggle that comes along with being mentally ill.
