Apprehension, Perturbation, Trepidation
The source of fear is the unknown. In my body of work I explored my own personal fears and anxieties as well as more ubiquitous fears. I was heavily inspired by surrealism and horror imagery, using monochrome ink to emphasise this aspect of the work. My own nightmares were a link between fear and the subconscious mind. The creation of this work was a personal process in overcoming my own fears, reflecting on myself and allowing for introspection. My intent is for the audience to also realise and come to terms with their own fears through exposure to my fears.
