This has to do with depression. I wanted to created a self-portrait that visually articulated what it’s like, when i sink into this dark place.
At first, depression is a welcome relief, from the lack of insomnia, mania brings… sleep comes, so softly, at first, then my need for it becomes insatiable. I am too tired to care about anything, which is a welcome change, at least, initially…
Then the hopelessness sets in, feelings of self-loathing, being overwhelmed by everything. That feeling i will never accomplish anything, never make the most of what i am meant to be, in this lifetime.
CONNECT WITH ME:
I am a self-taught photographic artist, writer and poet. My primary goal as an independent artist is to translate experiences from my life into an art form, making the personal... universal. This approach allows me to create a connecting thread in the universal fabric we share, creating a gateway to emotions deep.
It is also important for me to use my art as an awareness heightening medium that addressees social issues, including; sexual abuse, domestic violence and mental illness/health.
