Demons Of the Mind
Black ink linocut print on Thai Kozo paper

Combining organic flowy shapes and an abstracted human figure, this piece conveys the feelings and tumultuousness humans experience in their everyday lives and keep hidden most of the times. The human figure is being held down by threatening abstracted hands, with sharp thorn-like elements surrounding it to concretize the “nature” of these feelings of anxiety, fear and stress most people deal with every day. In this piece I use nature and natural forms as metaphors for human life and behavior, sometimes to personalize feelings and others to show the lessons we can learn from our environment.
