This is self portrait of me, this is what I hear, when will it end? Will it ever end? Dazed colours are what I see. 
I challenged the view of a dominate society (stereotypes of fat, queer and people with mental health disorders).
Look at this piece and think about what noises you hear, or do you see any noise? What do these colours make you feel, can you feel the movement? 
I based creatures on the idea of creatures of the mind. I could embody what I was trying to suggest on a more personal level. This is my head, the noise, the creatures which speak to me. The brush strokes and layers of paint represent my endlessly obsessed mind. 
I focus on representation, highlighting factors of my own identity, what I see and what do I want to see? I admitted my own emotions to myself, so I embody what my internalisation of everyday life is.  7ft X 9ft
