Completed February, 2023
Part of the Cake series, Anxious III: Just Fine is a meditation on anxiety.
This piece is about that first moment when something triggers your anxiety. A small thing, a little seed, that you know will grow and take over your mind. I played with fluidity, color, sheen and texture to capture how one anxiety feeds on another until all those little floating specks of floating anxiety seem to multiply. This piece is about the pressure to minimize and compartmentalize when it seems like you are anxiety personified, and not a creature experiencing the emotion of anxiety.
It is an interesting thing, what people see when they see this piece. Some saw something cosmic, a big bang birthing a universe. Others saw wounds and foreboding gunshots.
