This drawing is part of a larger collection (A PSYCHOSOCIOLOGICAL DIARY, 2019-2020).
“This series is a record of personal experiences, narratives, and human interactions, most of which are seen through the lenses of mental illness and trauma. These small drawings are windows into intimate spaces and their portable nature is a metaphor for the memories I carry, both public and private, beautiful and terrible, harmonious and chaotic, delicate and intense, and light and dark. The body is a site of tension between these dichotomies, and the exterior environment is transformed into a mindspace. ”
