If you gaze long enough into the abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you'
‘When you look long into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you.’ Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
My body of work focuses on the concept of self and how nightmares, stress and being psychologically disturbed may cause an individual’s physical and psychological health to deteriorate. If an individual surrounds themself with negativity, the individual will become negative. To represent the chaos and complexity of this psychology, I used multimedia and juxtaposed the methodical ink drawings with the chaotic ink-watercolour paintings. My intent was for the viewer to be unnerved, but to find beauty in chaos.
