Piece description from the artist

"Benevolence" is a distorted self-portrait that depicts my reconciliation with one of my most feared creatures, the snake. It is the last in a series of drawings that explores a part of my subconscious that I abhor. Anger and terror are difficult emotions to process, and in my work I seek to connect the viewer with their own inner relationship to uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. How do you see yourself as a person when you are at your least appealing?
