Project details

Overview

After a lengthy ordeal of uncertainty, I decided my major should be about my feelings and my love for all things zodiac. I wanted to express my culture, passion, teen affliction and happiness all through five A2 artworks. I am focussing on depression, childhood trauma, happiness, evilness and body image. The three I've almost completed from left to right are happiness, (the centrepiece), evilness and body image. My strong goal was to convey something deeply personal and to inspire other viewers.
It was 3am when my major became even more personal than I had ever wished it to be. My ex boyfriend came into my home and ripped up letters my mother had hand written me. He then proceeded to my desk and scrunched up my centrepiece drawing. He left. I was left topless on the floor in a scattering of my mum's letters and my art.
Since then I have gotten help, help I should've asked for earlier. I will not let this be a setback. I will be back to post my finished art! I am an artist!
