I Am Deteriorating From The Inside Out
This is a detailed painting of a deteriorating brain that was created using oil paint and wax. The maroon blood of the brain was applied by using a mixture of oil paint and wax which gives the painting texture and some added depth. The intended meaning of the painting is a representation of what "losing your mind" feels like to a person suffering from any type of mental illness. I always use my own feelings and experiences when creating an artwork so my inspiration for this painting were all of the times that I had completely lost myself in depression/anxiety and felt like my inner being, personality, happiness and self-esteem was rotting away from the inside of my brain.
