Slip Mickey Slip

These works attempt to objectify mental depression by envisioning it as an alienated protagonist inhabiting a grisaille world. The protagonist is seen interacting with colorful, iconic objects that signify feelings of loss and anxiety. This night-vision world is indicative of the frightening spaces that manifest themselves in the troubling fissures of cognitive ambiguity. Metaphorically, these figures embody a sense of psychological dread whose deformities render them monstrous. Their features allude to a self-consciousness which separates them from the natural order and is responsible for the feelings of isolation and seclusion so often associated with despair.
