I created this piece to reflect a feeling of when you observe yourself in the mirror there feels like there is only half of you there. It resonates with an almost nostalgic narrative, searching for pieces that are lost so no longer felt, but yearned for deep inside. On further seeking of brutal truth comes the realisation that you are not okay. This side can he hidden in the light no longer. The lie can longer be perpetuated. That is okay. Embrace the whole of you, the dark alongside the light.
This piece is meant to reflect looking at yourself in the mirror and feeling that only half of you is there. The realisation that you aren’t okay, and although you might not want to admit to this, you can’t keep lying to yourself anymore.
