My project is a collection of paintings and sketches depicting emotions and memories that I have found difficulty discussing in the past. These works aren’t meant to be easily understood so if you want to know them, you’ll have to spend time with them just as you would when trying to get to know a person,
My project is a collection of paintings and sketches consisting of mixed-media, oil, acrylic, watercolor and marker depicting emotions and memories that are difficult for me to discuss. The works show how these memories and emotions still impact me on a day to day basis not just how they originated. Struggling with Emotional Dysregulation and Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria can lead to small things having a much bigger impact. This can lead to the break downs, discussions, and even arguments that I depict in my works. All of the words written in the work are things I have thought or said in the past, generally repeated many times over. These works are not made to be fully understood at a glance. It will take time to truly see what is written or drawn out, and some read faster than others. Take your time, as if you’re getting to know a person.
