On The Fringe
Artwork on the outside edges, or "Insomnia Series"
"Know Your Master" Mixed Media (Ink, Watercolor, Pen, Colored Pencil) expresses an idea of addiction. I have seen many friends and family struggle with their addictions, and the wake of sorrow and disappointment it leaves. Some have been able to break free from the destructive patterns of addiction, but will always have those whispers of want; while others have lost their jobs, homes, families, or lives. The hardest thing to see, for me, is how blinding the bliss from their drug of choice is and how their loyalties change so quickly. The heartbreak of losing someone, watching them walk away from their own lives, no matter how you cry and chase behind them, calling them to come home, is unbearable and infuriating.
