Artist's Description

this is an oil painting I did when I last came back to australia. abt 4 or 5 years ago. living with my parents. i dont like this painting. but at the same time, i … appreciate what it represents…
at the time, I had just split up with a boy who meant alot to me. all of a sudden I was in this place i didnt know, alnone, trapped, because my parents put me there. with them, but i dont, connect with them because they seriously dont know the real me. the person holding me in this painting is not that boy. it is a figure that represents my personal support. having someone there for you dosent seem so important until there isnt one… hence my back turned to them and holding myself. they’re not there. i am alone and always will be. even if i were to meet my ‘soulmate’ and get married and all that crap. I will always just be me… and i dont expect anyone but me to understand that the way i do.
