Collapsing Under Your Own Gravity

Collapsing Under Your Own Gravity

This piece is a cut paper collage created with images taken from vintage magazines and various other ephemera, dry adhered to paper with a gel medium. This piece deals with my personal struggle with depression - much like a burning star, when we take on too much emotional weight, we collapse upon ourselves and become a black hole.
