Artist's Description

Fear and Despair is a series of works based on the basic human emotion of fear, while touching on depressive moods. It explores the concept that spirits live among us and that their presence can be felt in the physical world, often manifesting as deep and powerful emotions.

There are numerous references in the work, the grays, who appeared in the previous series A boy and his monster. Nosferatu’s version of Dracula. The Hatted Hunter, who appeared in the previous work The Relentless Pursuer. And finally Zombie who is a reoccurring character, best known for his appearances in the works Trinity of the Self and The Weight of a Heavy Burden.

The Pursuer is from a reoccurring series of dreams where a man without a face follows the artist constantly with an outstretched arm. It is thought that this being if a symbol for a sexual prowler, as there has been stories of him appearing in the dreams of other people that have been sexually abused in their life.
