The effort to overcome my fear of being judged or labeled by society has driven the creation of this painting. I have decided to accept what I cannot control. Instead of trying to change the world, I altered my perception of it. My struggle with psychological disorders was always shameful to me because I feared the social stigma it carries. I refused to be defined by my illness and the only way to avoid that was to keep it to myself.
While accepting social judgements, I question the main notions upon which they are based: right and wrong. How do these notions apply to someone with suicidal tendencies due to a psychological disorder? I do not have answers but I do know that no one will judge me any harsher than I do myself. This piece also represents self-judgement and the constant struggle to escape my cage.
