Art Description

New Media: Fractal, Digital, Black & White, New Media on Other.

Tristis Abyssus Altam [Sorrowful Abyss] is the eighth of a comprehensive series.

The working title for this body of work is 'Mental Illness'; the original inspiration to dive into my personal experience with depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation and what these thoughts and feelings might look like on a molecular level.

In truth, 'they' can represent the foundations of life itself.

Visually appearing strange or creepy to many, they are also beautiful and have a personality all their own. The dark surrealism lending itself to the intensity and hopelessness.

The organisms featured in this series are in constant motion; exploring and expanding amidst the 'parasitic' space (host) they inhabit. Their only will is to survive; blindly feeding during metamorphosis.

Slithering, writhing, indiscriminately examining devoid of curiosity.
