About The Artwork

Depression is experienced in a multitude of ways that is unique to one's personality, coping mechanisms, and individual magnitude. For me, it feels like a dichotomy: being empty and heavy at the same time. The translucent figure and clouded, unseeing eyes portray a lack of presence and the feeling of being barely there. The dark vignetted backdrop depicts an overcast state of mind while the bright white hue barely touching the figure suggests how close the other side of darkness is. The dying lily in the figure's hand represents holding onto the last remnants of self-empathy.

Anna Mikhaela Reyes is a contemporary artist based in Denton, Texas. After receiving her BFA in Drawing and Painting from Kennesaw State University, Anna focused her practice on the use of charcoal, watercolor, and colored pencil to elevate the romanticism of botany and the human figure. Anna's work explores themes in psychology, the flux of personal vulnerabilities, and the elusiveness of interpersonal connection. Common to her work is obscure symbolism as well as the intertwining elements of romance and melancholy—an acceptance that the most beautiful things in life are often bittersweet.
