We try to keep a balanced life, everything in moderation, afraid of losing control over our healthily organized schedule. And we sweep all the ill, hurtful emotions under the carpet, neglectfully hoping that the wounds would magically heal themselves. The reasons for despair and anger have long been forgotten and the emotional distress turned into ungovernable anxiety and fear. The unresolved melancholy and obsessive thoughts unexpectedly manifest in our dreams in twisted forms.

Inspired by personal experience, <HYSTERIA> is an on-going project of the artist’s effort to cope with unhealthy human emotions through image-making.

<HYSTERIA_03_Anxiety> is the third image of the on-going series.
