With “Emotional Distress” I’m inviting the viewer into how I deal with very raw emotion and how I’m affected or feeling at the moment. These paintings outline my feelings, experiences, and the chaos in my life. I experienced a complete life change once leaving college and I put those ordeals on canvas. For the first time, I painted an entire series on how I felt at the moment, with no idea of what the painting would look like in the end. I used a LOT of paint and often times I painted over artwork I didn’t like or I felt wasn’t strong enough, hence why most of the backgrounds are black. The average piece in this series weighs 12 pounds and took anywhere from five hours to eighteen weeks to complete.
