This piece is about many things. It is about letting go emotionally, mentally, and physically. It is about purging one's sense of identity and how we can face the world without it. It is partly autobiographical, based on my recent struggles and trials, but it is also partly a commentary on societal ideals. It is a way to face pain and express despair through my art, and in doing so let go of some of these feelings. But let's face it: it's mainly about painful digestive issues.
