What I hope to accomplish within this exhibit is to share my vision of how time flows during a time of distress. I wanted to allow the earth tones and colorful pigments to warp into another world, the world inside my mind. Over the course of time, we experience downfalls, that at moments lead to self-fulfilling prophecies. We could easily stop these things if we were omniscient. “I” is a self-portrait of what is seen at face value. The warped colors are to unhinge the patterns of time. “The Cave”, is a place like purgatory. It sits at the base of the mind and the root of it all rests at the foundations. Overall, I wanted to show how depression affects the mind and warps new realities. The masks we wear hide our true feelings. What truly lies beneath is a wonderland. Within each of us lies a rabbit hole, a kaleidoscope of feelings crashing beneath.
The sounds of the mind.
This piece is about becoming self-aware. The symbol on the forehead represents Dr. Manhattan, the facade that we are truly in control of what happens in our lives. It shows how the brain can manipulate memories and change events over time. All while the face rests in a deadpan position as if worrying never ensued.
The area surrounding the cave is actually the inside of my skull. It’s a place of warped images and memories. The mermaid represents the destructive forces of the mind. like water within the ocean, our thoughts could sloosh over another in times of anxiety. The cave represents what should be a place of solace is actually a set trap.
This piece is centered around father time and the character “H”, as she tries to go toward the center of the brain. The parallels of time are even more shifted and if you look within the piece there are faces and other clues of memories. “H” treks from her own space to go to the root of where it all lies. She does this to try to pull “I” from anxieties into reality.
