I tired to depict my personal struggle with anxiety here. I used the tub and water to depict feeling like drowning in your own dark thoughts (represented by the black cloth) and the fact that you almost feel as if you’re sinking below the weight of it all even when you’re so close to the surface of being ok. It also feels as if you cannot breathe and need to scream silently as it is all an eternal battle within oneself. The dark colors were picked to emphasize the darkness that surrounds your whole body and mind in so many ways.
Anxiety and struggles among the demons we all carry within ourselves on a day to day basis
