Let Go

Let go

This is a work that I did a little ways back but never posted till now called “Let Go”. There are times we are left with little more than feelings. These feelings can be hard to understand and make you just want to let all that unease and pain you feel go. This is the feeling I wished to capture in this work.

The story behind this work is that during a day where my depression hit it’s breaking point and I couldn’t stop crying. I talked to my now ex-girlfriend and had a talk about our feelings for each other, there was a lot more crying involved on each end. Everything I had been holding back had come to the forefront. It was a release from all the pain I had been building up since our break up back in April of this year.

Things were said, tears were shed, and after a two hour long conclusion I felt a small sense of closure over well me. It felt good. So good that I went to the art studio on Alfred state campus, pulled out my charcoal and drew for what seemed like hours. The end result is what you see now.

I still suffer from depression, even now. But with my charcoal drawings it’s helping to ease the pain and help bring me closer to being healed. That’s what I wanted to convey in this work utilizing line weight and contrast of white on black charcoal.
