The three pieces I created for the exhibition all revolve around the topic of mental health and mental illness. 



The first one of the 3-part series is about feeling uncomfortable in your own skin. I always used to compare myself to others, especially when I was in my teen years and quickly noticed that every girl that I surrounded myself with was quite petite compared to me. I was always tall and stopped growing when I was about 15 years old (or even younger) at a height of 185cm (6.1 feet), nothing fit, all of my pants were too small, sleeves didn't reach as far as they should and it seemed like I was the only one with that problem as I was the only girl in my school that was taller than the 'standard' teen girl and I did get bullied for it but I think what messed up my body image was more my own comparison to those girls which then lead to a very unhealthy eating habit. I always wanted there to be less of me in any way possible which is exactly what this painting represents for me and during the last lockdown, that way of thinking had a come-back which is why I wanted to create a painting besides the (Broken-Mirror) painting that addresses this issue.
