l e t h a r g i e s

I want my work to address events of interpersonal issues. The Idea of Revelations: Where we ask ourselves ‘was I myself when I made this decision?’ moments where we forget ourselves and find ourselves again in situations where we question what’s in our best interest. How do we know what’s in our own best interest?

 

A female figure sits at a table holding her self within an oversized sweater. On her desk in a typewriter surrounded with crumpled paper and a half glass of wine. She rest her head on her elbows in a melancholy state and she pushes the other half of her body forward through the sweater. Even though she wants to break free from her Lethargies she remains paralyzed and she can’t move. It alludes to a message of anxiety and depression, on those days you want to feel encouraged enough to be social and productive but you remain self-contained. The figure is unmoved but I wanted her to be shaped in a gestural attempt of that wanting to be productive.
