Piece description from the artist
This piece is about the dangers of trying to fit in. Certain people will do anything to be accepted no matter the cost.. I used the colors orange and purple – which are in fact complimentary colors, but in fact don't always appear to work together… I struggled to make these colors
"accept" one another which was maddening at times.
