The Aftertaste of Repression
ISKL | Graphite Pencil | 30.3 x 24.6 cm
During the past few months of quarantine, I have felt an overwhelming amount of stress build up inside me and, undoubtedly, other people have too. Instead of letting go of stress healthily, some people may hold it inside of them. However, like continuously pouring water into a glass, the water will overflow just like stress built up inside a person. The release of locked away worry and anger is symbolised by the disturbing vines pouring out of an individual’s head. Each vine is different to display the aftermath of various emotions liberated after repressing stress.
