Cake: The Mental Health Series
Completed February, 2023
Part of the Cake series, Anxious II: Fine is a meditation on anxiety.
It is an interesting thing, what people see when they see this piece. Some saw something cosmic, a black hole collapsing, a galaxy expanding. Others saw anguish and foreboding.
This piece is about the well-meaning advice and quick fixes offered when someone shares their anxiety. I played with fluidity and texture to capture the closing down and implosion around anxiety. This piece is about the pressure to present as serene and reliable, suppressing our cracks and fears.
