Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

Some of us, if not all, have felt some kind of emptiness. It can come from sadness, not having life goals to achieve, or not feeling like there's a purpose in life. It's real and depending on the person, that feeling of emptiness can last a few days or remain for a decent time. The experience varies from person to person.

With this series, I am exploring feelings of loneliness and alienation that I have been experiencing over the past couple of years as I am slowly learning to accept it. Being in a pandemic has increased this feeling and has made many others feel the same types of feelings. I hope the viewer will take comfort in knowing that they are not alone. My procedure was to work at night, as this is typically when people feel alone.
