I have tried to represent that feeling when you go out from the safety of your home and you are not feeling on top of the world. Everybody seems aggressive. They are talking about you, even though they don’t know you. The world seems hateful. I think the childlike style of the painting enhances the feeling of vulnerability even us adults can experience from time to time.
This work was shown at the Visions: The Mind’s Eye exhibition in 2010. This is a collaboration between the Institute of Mental Health and City Arts Nottingham .
