I am not a painter by hobby or talent, but this was a year about trying new things and facing design fears. I used acrylic paint and just went for it. The series was about the four truths of suffering and the anguish we experience through it. Think back to a time you were in agony, I mean really going through it… sometimes it can feel like you have been to hell and back. This piece was hard to get just right; it’s scary, it’s dark and it’s not comforting. Although this art is raw, I think it is an honest piece in relation to the series.
