How Do You Sleep at Night?

Acrylic paintHow Do You Sleep at Night?, 202160x50cm

My piece was created surrounding the theme of individuals who have trouble with certain issues, such as anxiety, which appear at night when the world gets quieter. The ideas behind this painting reflect our minds, and how even though people appear to be content to others, inside we me be struggling. It symbolises that during the daytime when we have distractions, such as work, school or friends, at night when you lay in bed, all the thoughts and problems that worry you, flood your mind. I created this piece as I think that art is about expressing yourself and conveying emotion to others, and I have experienced this, so I wanted to bring attention to this subject letting others know that they aren’t alone.
