Shards of My Anxiety
Acrylic, ceramic and mirror on glass
8 x 10 inches
"Woman, Create sheds light to affect consciousness and open-mindedness – quarantines meant different things for people. As an attempt to remind the viewers that, the 8 x 10-inch collage Shards of My Anxiety was created of domestic items – broken plates, mirrors, and glass transformed into a candy-colored mixed media piece.
Quarantines meant different things to people? “During the quarantine, some got excited to spend the vast open time available to them, others felt depleted from the new normal work arrangements. And some dreaded the long hours at home, possibly of rumination, anxiety, depression, and domestic violence. Shards of My Anxiety is a nudge that in these times, there’s beauty in being open to understanding instead of spreading hate.”"
